Vinnie Paul Discusses Randy Blythe Situation – Exclusive Video Interview
In an exclusive interview with Loudwire, Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul talked about the legal situation Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is currently in overseas in the Czech Republic. The legendary Pantera stickman knows all-too-well the dangers of fans jumping on-stage at live shows. Nearly eight years ago, his brother Dimebag Darrell was tragically shot and killed right in front of him during a Damageplan set in Columbus, Ohio.
“After seeing what happened first-hand to my brother, none of us thought that there was an evil bone in that guy’s skin when he came up onstage,” Vinnie Paul told Loudwire. “He looked like a security guard or a cop and ten seconds later four people are dead, you know? … You don’t know if that’s going to be a high-five or a loose cannon with a f—ing knife.”
Blythe is currently in a Czech jail on charges of manslaughter stemming from an onstage incident in 2010. “If he did anything to protect himself, he had the right to as far as I’m concerned,” Vinnie Paul said of Blythe. “He’s the f—ing nicest guy in the f—ing world.”
