VINNIE PAUL Performs With ANTHRAX, DISTURBED During DIMEBAG Memorial Concert

PANTERA/DAMAGEPLAN drummer Vinnie Paul joined ANTHRAX and DISTURBED onstage during Wednesday night's (Feb. 23) benefit show in memory of Vinnie's brother, slain DAMAGEPLAN/PANTERA guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. Vinnie performed PANTERA's "A New Level" with ANTHRAX before sitting behind the kit with headliners DISTURBED for a rendition of the PANTERA signature song "Walk", with many other musicians joining in.
