Late Friday night it was reported that Pantera/Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul had passed away in his sleep. Since then tributes have been pouring in.
Here’s some of the tributes classic rockers have been sending out over the weekend since the passing of a beloved drummer & one of the nicest guys in the rock/metal world.
Thank you for all the good times, Vinnie…your incredible hospitality and warm vibe was infectious and inspiring. Here’s to another shot of Crown Royal and a next level game of air hockey down the road! RIP, brother. Much love. ❤ pic.twitter.com/ehNXoO88jY

Vinnie has been at nearly every birthday bash in Cabo from the beginning. I was at the cantina in Cabo late last night when I got the news. It sure is hard to believe. Great drummer, great guy and a great friend. Very sad.https://t.co/ieHMsqi8rw
