Vinnie Paul Likens HellYeah To Pantera
A man I have a ton of respect for — drummer Vinnie Paul — has said something terrible about a band I have a ton of respect for — the late, great Pantera. He compared his old band to his new band.
That new band, of course, is HellYeah — Vinnie’s band with some of the dudes from Mudvayne and someone else. Oh well, I forget the small details when I don’t give a shit about something. Anyways, HellYeah are on the Uproar Tour with Stone Sour and Avenged Sevenfold this fall and Vinnie spoke to Metal Hammer.
He said this: “We really feel like Hellyeah has its own sound, but it does continue the tradition and vibe of what we did in Pantera. I really, really enjoy playing with these guys and we get on great and I think we’re gonna have a long career, man. I’m really excited about building this thing from the ground up again. And this is the hardest drinkin’ band I’ve ever known!”
Vin…time to give the boozin’ a break. You’re saying things you can’t unsay.
