Congratulations are in order for DOWN guitarist and CROWBAR frontman Kirk Windstein who just got engaged to his girlfriend of two months, Robin Dubroc.
Windstein ended his previous relationship to a woman named Kate in early October and became romantically involved with Dubroc on October 18, according to Kirk's personal Facebook timeline. He wrote on October 4: "My world as I know it has been crushed... Kate doesn't want me anymore and I'm fucking devastated. It's not her fault, she just can't deal with me being gone all the time. I will always love her more than any woman." He added the next day: "I'll say one thing... my heart has been broken for the last time. I will never trust a woman with my heart ever again!!!" A week into his new relationship, on October 22, Kirk wrote: "I spoke to Robin for at least an hour and a half!!! The most special lady I know... To all who are hurting, giving up on love etc., let Robin and I be an example... By that I mean that your true love will come around. It took 47 years for me... but it is 'real' and I feel it... I have not felt this good since I was a kid!!! AMAZING what the right lady can do for your soul... I love you, Robin. Thanks for being you!!!"
Windstein has a nine-year-old daughter, Haleigh, with his ex-wife, Nicole.
**UPDATE**: After this story was first posted on BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Kirk took to his Facebook page to offer the following comment: "Pretty amazing how they leave out all details about Robin and I dating 25 years ago, and they leave out all the problems Kate and I had throughout our 3-plus-year relationship, then they make it look like I just met Robin while we've been talking all along... The National Enquirer of metal... Fuck all the gossip... I know who I am and I know who I will spend my life with... Robin!!!"
