One friend wrote on Himanshu Sharma’s Facebook wall, “I only met you one time at possibly one of the greatest events in Dubai, but I felt that we really connected during that time. It was great to know that there were other energetic, kick-ass metal heads in the city that I could have fun with and share the same vibes. I immediately knew that were super cool once you and your friends started head banging everywhere and then I jumped in. That had to be one of the greatest nights I ever had. We also had pretty good conversation too; thanks for keeping touch even after I went back to Arizona.
I was really looking forward to jamming with you after I came back 😔. I’m sorry to hear about this, I may not be sure how, but it really breaks my heart nonetheless. Hope you’re still rocking out wherever you may have gone. Rest in Peace, Shaggy!”

Another friend commented, “This comes with a heavy heart. We had a couple of great gigs and some crazy parties over the last 4 years and I always enjoyed your company, how much ever little I got to spend with you. I will always regret not being able to come to The Shed even though you invited me many times. I loved the fact that it was so easy being friends with you and I always felt happy being around you because you were the kind of guy who just had an amazing aura around you. I will never have such great beard, hair and awesome guitar skills as you ever did. Stay metal, wherever you are. Say hi to Dio, Dimebag and Freddie for us, okay? RIP Himanshu Sharma.”
Another female friend posted, “What happens in the shed, stays in the shed. Right shaggy? Man screw u. We talked about this. Not like this. You and me together on this man. You didn’t care about a lot of people liking you. But a handful did cherish you. Rest in peace man. You were a good person regardless of everything. You were there for us. For people like me. The shed will forever miss you and you’ll live on in the hearts of people who love you with the memories you’ve left behind. ❤ Here’s to you on your last birthday with me. I just wish you lived a little longer to celebrate more to come with us.”
There was one more comment from a friend, “It’s times like these, you say you loved them. But I wish I could have told you, and reassured you that I really did, in person. I’m sure a lot of us feel we could’ve done more; could have said more, to perhaps make you happier when you needed it. I’m sorry, brother. I really thought I’d see you again. I wish I weren’t so far away. I remember you told me that you loved me, and I don’t remember if I said it back. I hope I did. The age old lesson of not taking your friends and family for granted rings through. RIP, Himanshu ❤️.”
