6/23: RIP VINNIE PAUL. RADIO SPECIAL THIS WEEKEND AND MONDAY ON SIRIUSXM, FM SHOW NEXT WEEKEND.
Shocked to hear of the death of Pantera/Hellyeah/Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul late last night. Vin was a friend and frequent guests on all of my TV and radio shows over the years. Vinnie was what I liked most in guests, they were first and foremost music fans, and never stopped being one. He equally loved Slayer and Poison. I remember how excited he was when we had him on TMS and he shared a show with Styx. Sure an amazing drummer. But a rock fan through and through beyond anything. Which made for great hangs over the years. He loved to knock a few back and watch bands and hang with friends, I did that a few times with him. I last saw Vin in Dallas in December at the holiday show I host at Bomb Factory, waiting to see Ace Frehley play. We had a toast to the holidays. Last time I was in Dallas a couple months ago we had discussed him doing my show from there, but it didn’t work out with schedules. Vinnie was a huge presence and talent in the rock and metal world. He will be missed by many. RIP Vin. Condolences to his family, friends and many fans. I will do a special live tribute today 3-5P ET on SiriusXM 106 Volume. We will also remember him on my show Monday in the usual 2-4P slot on 106 and during Trunk Nation on Hair Nation Monday night on 39 from 5-8P ET
The Vinnie Paul special that aired live Saturday afternoon also repeats Saturday and Sunday night 8-10P ET on 106 Volume on SiriusXM!
Due to the timing of this I was unable to include music and a tribute to Vin in my FM show airing this weekend on affiliates, however I will next weekend.
Damn… another great one done way too soon! Vinnie and Dimebag are shaking the pillars of heaven with some serious metal! R.I.P
