Ο κόσμος της rock και metal μουσικής έγινε ακόμα φτωχότερος μετά τον θάνατο του πρώην drummer των Pantera/Hellyeah Vinnie Paul, ο οποίος έφυγε από τη ζωή τα ξημερώματα του Σαββάτου (ώρα Ελλάδας) σε ηλικία 54 ετών.

Προς το παρόν δεν έχουν διευκρινιστεί τα αιτία θανάτου του, με την οικογένεια να ζητά από όλους να σεβαστούν τις δύσκολες αυτές ώρες.

Από την πρώτη στιγμή της γνωστοποίησης του θανάτου του Vinnie Paul, δεκάδες rockers, μουσικοί και συγκροτήματα ανέβασαν το δικό τους μήνυμα στήριξης στην ευρύτερη οικογένεια των Pantera.

Οι Pantera αρχικά ανέβασαν την είδηση, χωρίς όμως να δώσουν περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες, με την δισκογραφική εταιρία των Hellyeah, Eleven Seven Music και την Octane Music να τονίζουν μεταξύ άλλων στην ανακοίνωσή τους:

Ο Vinnie Paul Abbot δεν ήταν απλά ένας drummer, αλλά μια εξέχουσα προσωπικότητα στην hard rock και metal κοινότητα. Ήταν ένας πιονέρος, ένας θρύλος. Ήταν αυτοδίδακτος μουσικός που στην διάρκεια της καριέρας του πήρε πολλά βραβεία για το παίξιμό του.

Ιδρυτικό μέλος των Pantera, Damageplan, αλλά και νεότερα με τους Hellyeah, ο Vinnie ήταν κινητήριος μοχλός των συγκροτημάτων στα οποία ήταν μέλος. Η πιο πρόσφατη κυκλοφορία του με τους Hellyeah, το «Unden!able» περιελάμβανε τρία hit singles. Στέλνουμε την αγάπη μας στην οικογένεια, τους φίλους, την μπάντα και τους fans του. Θα μας λείψει. Αυτή είναι η ευκαιρία να επανασυνδεθεί με τον Dime… R.I.P, Vinnie Paul.

Σήμερα ο κόσμος της μουσικής θρηνεί έναν θρύλο αλλά και μια αυθεντική προσωπικότητα που χάριζε χαμόγελα σε όποιον γνώριζε.

Οι άνθρωποι της Eleven Seven Music είναι συντετριμμένοι. Οι σκέψεις μας είναι με την οικογένεια, τους φίλους και τους fans.

I remember how excited ‘The Rev’ was when he first met you in Dallas after a show in the early 2000’s. You grabbed him around the neck and said he was a kick ass drummer even though he borrowed some of your chops! We were in shock that Jimmy had met our all time favorite drummer so we all ran to the bar to meet you and proceeded to drink the night away. You were warm and engaging. Our friendship lasted for many years and eventually resulted in a killer rendition of “Mouth for War” at the Revolver Golden Gods, a career highlight. Vegas will never be the same without you. Dallas will never be the same. Metal will never be the same. We have been lucky enough to meet some of our idols and call them friends. You were one of the greatest of all time and a great friend. Today we mourn. – A7X

Very sad news this evening. This man always treated me & the guys in my band like family, from the very first time we ever met him with his brother at a Damageplan gig in Texas– whether backstage at a show, on his crazy tour bus, at his club, at his house, he was always a gracious host to us. He just wanted people around him to be happy. I didn’t see Vinnie much the last time we played a gig together because I heard he was in a very foul mood– this was highly unusual for him. Why was he in a foul mood? Because we were playing a big festival in Chicago, he had bought a TON OF FOOD to grill in the parking lot for everyone (as usual), & the fire marshall came and shut him down before he could start the bar-b-que. That’s the type of dude he was– he just wanted to make sure people were having a good time, & he took steps to make that happen. He also did me a very solid favor when I was in some very serious legal trouble a while back by writing a detailed letter to a judge explaining what had happened to his brother & the need for good stage security– that wasn’t an easy thing for him to do, but he did it anyway because he was a true friend and knew I needed some help– I’ll never forget that, & I made sure he knew I appreciated it. He also never minded when I got in his face with my camera– I took this photo with a 50mm fixed lens at a festival we were playing with Hellyeah in Iowa in 2016– that means I was basically inside his drum kit. When he saw me poking my head in there, he just turned, flashed me this grin, & kept on rocking. I love this photo– Big Vin smiling and doing what he did best. Rest In Peace, Vinnie Paul. You’ll be missed. BIG LOVE.
