Godsmack And Shinedown Perform At The Hard Rock

The Abbott Brothers helped revolutionize heavy metal nearly three decades ago. And now they are back together again.

Like the legendary Dimebag Darrell, Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul is gone too soon at 54.

Simply put, Pantera helped revolutionize heavy metal in large part due to Dime’s groundbreaking riffs and Vinnie’s groove-tastic drumming. Scott Ian of Anthrax once said that Pantera also helped save metal. At a time when grunge was king, it’s not hard to agree. And with bludgeoning performances like this, who can argue?!

He’s back with Dime again.  RIP Vinnie Paul!
