Vincent Paul Abbott 1964-2018

Legendary drummer Vinnie Paul, formerly of Pantera and Damageplan, and with Hellyeah since 2006, died Friday, June 22, 2018, at the age of 54.

From the Pantera Facebook page:

“Vincent Paul Abbott aka Vinnie Paul has passed away. Paul is best known for his work as the drummer in the bands Pantera and Hellyeah. No further details are available at this time. The family requests you please respect their privacy during this time.”

While this loss hurts, we can take comfort in knowing he’s been reunited with his brother, Dimebag Darrell. And of course, they both will live on through their music and the many, many lives they touched.

Rest in peace, Vinnie.
