KORN guitarist Brian Welch has paid tribute to PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul. He posted on his Instagram.
“My God, we have lost another friend.
“I don’t understand what is happening.
“Vinnie Paul was definitely the kindest living legend I’ve ever met. He endured so much tragedy yet still had so much more love and positivity. Truly a kind soul with such a giving heart.
“Just in the last couple of years, he surprised KORN with some cool gifts. Right after we walked off stage in Dallas, we were shocked to find a brand new thundering loud stereo blaring music in our dressing room as we walked in — compliments of Vinnie Paul. And on our European tour with HELLYEAH, Vinnie surprised Fieldy with a brand new bass… signed by Paul McCartney. That’s the type of person he was.
“Vinnie, you were one of a kind and will be so missed by countless people.
“God, let your unconditional love and mercy bring Vinnie Paul back together with his brother, and be with his family through this devastating loss.”
