An official merchandise store for late PANTERA and HELLYEAH drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott has been launched at www.vinniepaulshop.com.
According to a post on Vinnie Paul's official Facebook page, "Vinnie personally started this process during the summer of 2017. We just wish he could have been here to see it come to fruition," the post adds.
Vinnie Paul died on June 22 of dilated cardiomyopathy, an enlarged heart, as well as severe coronary artery disease. His death was the result of chronic weakening of the heart muscle — basically meaning his heart couldn't pump blood as well as a healthy heart.
Vinnie Paul and his brother "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott co-founded PANTERA. When PANTERA broke up in 2003, they formed DAMAGEPLAN. On December 8, 2004, while performing with DAMAGEPLAN at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio, Dimebag was shot and killed onstage.
Vinnie Paul was most recently in the band HELLYEAH alongside MUDVAYNE vocalist Chad Gray and NOTHINGFACE guitarist Tom Maxwell.
Not long before his death, Vinnie laid down the drum tracks for HELLYEAH's sixth album at The Hideout recording studio in Las Vegas. It is not presently clear when those recordings will see the light of day.
We are excited to announced the launch of Vinnie Paul’s official online store. Vinnie personally started this process...Posted by Vinnie Paul on Saturday, October 27, 2018
