I woke up to see this sad news today that Vinnie Paul has passed. A huge influence and a man who lived the rock n’ roll lifestyle to the hilt. No word on what the cause of death is. The Pantera Facebook page stated the following:
“Vincent Paul Abbott aka Vinnie Paul has passed away. Paul is best known for his work as the drummer in the bandsPantera and Hellyeah. No further details are available at this time.The family requests you please respect their privacy during this time.”
We’ve lost a lot of greats this year, but Paul is on the young side. I’m sure he’s going to see brother and will be having one hell of a jam. R.I.P. Vinnie!
