Corey Taylor (pictured; SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR),Slash (GUNS N' ROSES),Paul Stanley (KISS) and Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE) are among the rockers who have reacted to the mass shooting at a popular gay club in Orlando, Florida, which left 50 people dead early Sunday morning, including the gunman.
The deadliest mass shooting in the United States and the nation's worst terror attack since 9/11 was carried out by Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old American-born man who'd pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group ISIS.
Armed with an assault rifle and a pistol, Mateen reportedly entered the packed Pulse club about 2 a.m. Sunday and started shooting, killing 49 people and wounding at least 53.
Mateen lived in Fort Pierce, Florida, about 120 miles south of Orlando, and worked as a private security officer.
He had been interviewed by the FBI twice and had once been on a terrorist watch list.
