A 15-year-old teenager, stabbed to death as he walked hom from a sweet shop in north Belfast was a diehard rock fan. Thomas Devlins' love of rock music was evident the minute you walked into his bedrooms and saw the decor. A talented musician, he was stabbed five times in the back while he and two friends walked home. One of the friends was also stabbed in the back but escaped with minor injuries thanks to a back-pack he was wearing.

Because of his ongoing love of rock music he was buried in an Iron Maiden teeshirt. How very sad & how could a bigger tribute ever be made to a band and its impact on such a young and short life.
