Great White Manager Jailed

Former Great White tour manager Daniel Biechele is off to the slammer.

Biechele was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday for his role in the deadly Rhode Island nightclub blaze that killed 100 people and injured hundreds more during an February 2003 performance by the heavy metal band.

Another sad chapter to a horrible tragedy.

I heard there was a memo circulated at Clear Channel about this whole tragedy.

Apparently someone thought it might be possible to sue Clear Channel since they promo'd the event on the radio, effectively endorsing it.

But I don't know the whole story; kind of opens a whole 'nother kettle of fish, though.

I think the entire thing is so sad because it was so avoidable.

Regardless of the guys character (I don't know him or anything about him), does he really deserve jail time for this tragedy? I'm curious as why he's the responsible one?

He started the fire. And he had no fire extinguishers handy.
