Vinnie Paul of Hellyeah claims the trappings of fame can be challenging. The ex Pantera drummer says: “Being a rock star ain’t easy. It’s a job. You’ve got to work at it. We’re the ultimate roll models for drunks. You don’t want to get into this business unless you’re a complete alcoholic like us.”
Confirming there won’t be a Pantera reunion he comments: “The spirit of that band carries on with us. We keep rocking like a motherfucker. Hellyeah is here to stay.” Their third album, Band of Brothers, is out in July.
