Vinnie Paul Is Recovering
Band Photo: Damageplan (?)
Mike Devlin of Victoria, British Columbia's Times Colonist reports:
Vinnie Paul, legendary drummer for metal gods PANTERA and, later, DAMAGEPLAN, has resumed his position behind his drum kit and is on the road to emotional recovery following a disastrous 2004.
In December of that year, Paul's brother and longtime band mate, Dimebag Darrell, was shot and killed on stage during a Columbus, Ohio, DAMAGEPLAN concert.
It took Paul more than a year to recover from the horror of the incident.
"Things are different now, and that's the way I have to look at it, otherwise it is depressing and hard to try to live," says Paul, a native of Dallas, Tex.
"The most important thing for me to do is keep kicking ass because that's what he wants me to do."
Among his many new creative pursuits is a custom Pearl drum kit bearing his signature.
