Le musicien est mort à l'âge de 54 ans.

Le batteur de Pantera et Hellyeah, Vince Paul Abbott, plus connu sous le nom de Vinnie Paul, s'est éteint vendredi à l'âge de 54 ans. Les circonstances de sa mort, restent toutefois inconnues pour l'heure. Il avait fondé avec son frère, Darrell Abbott, alias Dimebag Darrell, le groupe de heavy metal Pantera au début des années 1980 avant la séparation en 2003. Un an plus tard, Dimebag était assassiné sur scène par un déséquilibré, Nathan Gale. 
Voici le communiqué : 

"Vinnie Paul Abbott wasn’t just a drummer, he was an iconic fixture in the metal and hard rock community, a pioneer, and an absolute legend. He was a self taught drummer who went on to win many awards for his impeccable skills throughout his career.

A founding member of Pantera, DamagePlan and his current band HellYeah, Vinnie was a vital force for bands and millions of fans worldwide.  Whether fans were turning their volume to 11 or headbanging their hearts out at live shows, Vinnie was an inspiration.

His most recent release, Hellyeah’s UNDEN!ABLE contained three hit singles, thanks to support from Sirius XM’s Octane. “All of us at Octane are so broken hearted to hear of the passing of our brother Vinnie Paul. We sent love to his family, band members and fans.  You will be missed. Thinking of you reunited and rockin’ with Dime… Rest in Peace, Vinnie Paul Abbott”, Octane released in a statement.

Today, the world not only lost a legend, but also a genuine human being who lived to put a smile on the faces of everyone he met.  

May he be reunited with his brother as we all strive to continue his legacy.

Eleven Seven Music is heartbroken, our thoughts and prayers are with his family, bandmates, friends, and fans through this difficult time."
