Countdown To Balloonfest II; Vinnies’ Story

“Balloonfest-ito” is Friday! Are you ready?

Join El Pasos best rock Friday at Wet N Wild Waterworld for the HELLYEAH makeup show!

They’re “making it good” along with Suicide Romance and Years Of Cold.  Park opens at 11 a.m., bands start at 3.

For those that aren’t up on HELLYEAH’s history, the band is made up of members of other kick-azz bands (NothingfaceMudvayne) and includes Vinnie Paul on the drums!

Vinnie is one of the coolest people I have ever met and has one of the heaviest historys in metal!  He formed Pantera with his brother “Dimebag” Darrell, then continued on with Dimebag to form Damageplan and Rebel Meets Rebel. (Which featured … and no, I’m not kidding … outlaw country legend David Allan Coe!!)

Ok; I was a little skeptical about that one. Until I heard them!!  Check ’em out for yourself if you’re not already a fan; you’re about to be!

Damageplan was pretty intense as well!!

I would absolutely never be forgiven by my metal lovin’ brothers and sisters … by any lover of metal … if I didn’t take you back to the band where it all started for Vinnie.


Vinnie is a freakin drumming and metal MACHINE!!  Come see what he and HELLYEAH are all about Friday!!

Getcha’ Pull!!
