During a recent interview with Gainesville Times, former bandmate of Vinnie Paul, Hellyeah bassist Kyle Sanders has revealed how he dealt with Vinnie’s death.

“It was just heavy. It was awful. And dealing with that, everything was put on hold because we weren’t sure what was going to happen.

Everyone was dealing with it in their own ways and then a light just went off. I was talking to a friend and I was like, ‘This is the time to start [the rock music school].‘”

Back in June 2018, Hellyeah vocalist Chad Gray has expressed his feelings about Vinnie, and said:

“I just want to say, thank you, Vinnie Paul! For saving my life, for your music, for your endless generosity, for accepting me into your life, for creating our music that touched people, for being proud to be in Hellyeah and for always treating me like a brother and more importantly for treating me like a friend…

I will always love you and go to the end of the earth to carry the torch for you and Dime’s legacy.”
