I was fortunate enough to work with Vinnie Paul during his time as a Pearl Artist. Some of the highlights include:
But the last time I saw him was during his surprise visit to Pearl. It was a normal day and all of a sudden a white cadillac pulls up and out steps Vinnie!
He just decided to pop in to say hey and hang out for a bit... no agenda. So we made the rounds and he took pics with everyone... just the classic overly friendly Vinnie that you know and love. Afterwards, we went back to my office and talked for a bit before he left. I’m so glad we grabbed a quick pic...
Vinnie was one-of-kind and definitely made his mark on music and everyone he met.
Rest In Peace... you deserve it.
Pantera in action so NSFW...
EDIT 6.22.19 - It's been one year since Vinnie's passing and I found a few more pictures from the last time I saw him.
Todd Sucherman... truly the ‘Tom Hanks’ of the drum world. He’s seemingly been around forever, everyone loves him on & off stage, and he delivers astounding performances every... single... time. We've known each other since the late 90's and/or early 2000's and he continues to be a real treat to be around.
You’ll witness true musical magic whether it’s the first or forty-seventh time you’ve seen him.
