While Vinnie Paul died this past Friday, the metal community lost one of it’s best drummers, but also one of it’s best party hosts. And while a cause of death has yet to be determined, several reports have been circulating around about the circumstances surrounding it. TMZ yesterday reported that he died in his sleep. And the Las Vegas Review-Journal quotes “sources that knew him” as saying he had suffered a major heart attack.
While we’re all crushed and would obviously like answers sooner than later as to what his cause of death was, know that this is all conjecture and should be taken with a grain of salt. The Pantera and Paul camp is asking everyone to respect their privacy, and the cause of death still has yet to be determined.
