Former PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul has posted the following message on his official MySpace page:
"Well, I just got back from Canada where I was promoting REBEL MEETS REBEL, 'DimeVision' and my new signature snare drum from Pearl Drums. First stop was Toronto.
"Canada has always been good to us and this time was no exception. First day was full-on press day with MTV, Much Music, 'Entertainment Tonight' and in-person interviews at Fontana. The next day was my meet and greet at Steve's Music. It was pouring down cold rain and we had still had 1,000 people turn out. It was very gratifying and a long, long wet day. I wanna thank everyone who stood in line for hours in the rain and I was happy to see the Canadians love REBEL MEETS REBEL and have big love for 'DimeVision'!!!! Then off to Ottawa got lucky cause it was a great sunny day and was very well attended too. Then my last stop was Montreal. It was amazing as well and the French love the REBEL music too!! I also wanna thank John Graham, Paul Fredicks, Ruth, Lee and all at Steve's Music. Great trip!!!
"Came back to Big D [Dallas] and had the pleasure of watching the Mavs crush the Miami Heat!!! I think Shaq is in big trouble!!! Then the big news came in that 'DimeVision' had been certified gold!!!! Thank all of you for your support and spreading the word It's a great feeling knowing everyone loves Dime's magic.And finally Sammy Hagar brought his Cabo Cantina Party through town. Wow!!!! What a show. I was lucky enough to have Sammy and Michael Anthony bring me up on stage and jam with THE OTHER HALF!!!! Great feeling to play 'Runnin' With The Devil' in front of 10,000 hometown fans. Special thanks to Paul Binder and Sammy's entire crew and band!!! See you in Cabo in October."
