Legendary Pantera / Damageplan / Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul has carved out a remarkable career since forming Pantera in 1981. Paul will add yet another album to his resume when Hellyeah release 'Blood for Blood' on June 10, but as evidenced in a new interview, the drummer is only feeling pressure from two sources: himself and his late brother 'Dimebag' Darrell Abbott.

Let's face it. When it comes to hard rock and metal, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has dragged their feet over the years with inducting some of the big names of the genre, so with that in mind, Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul says he's not confident that the groundbreaking metal band will have their named called.
Has it really been 20 years? This week marks the 20th Anniversary of Pantera's timeless classic, 'Far Beyond Driven,' and the band is issuing a special 20th Anniversary package today (March 25) to mark the occasion. Included with the remastered original album is a live performance from the 1994 Monsters of Rock Festival, which was recorded during the 'Far Beyond Driven' tour cycle.
