On February 20, 2003, the '80s metal band Great White was performing its song "Desert Moon" at The Station in Warwick, Rhode Island, when the band's fireworks were triggered, igniting tragedy. The ill-planned pyrotechnics show caused a disastrous fire that killed 100 people inside the 50-year-old building. While most of the band escaped through a nearby stage door, Longley leaped off the front of the stage, toward a friend. The friend survived; Longley, 31, died wearing his guitar.
