Vinnie Paul Of Pantera/HELLYEAH

Late Pantera/HELLYEAH Drummer Vinnie Paul Snubbed In Latest GRAMMYS ‘In Memoriam’ Tribute


In what has become a sad tradition, the ‘in memoriam’ segment of this year’s ‘GRAMMY Awards‘ once again overlooked a prominent metal/hard rock musician with late Pantera/HELLYEAH drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott not being mentioned during the segment—though he is mentioned among those lost in 2018 on

The apparent snub is the latest in a long line of metal/hard rock omissions from the segment, which pays tribute to the various musicians and music industry professionals who passed the year prior. Others to have been excluded from the segment in the past include Slayer‘s Jeff Hanneman, Gwar‘s Oderus Urungus, Static-X‘s Wayne Static, ex-Megadeth drummer Nick Menza and more.
