Pantera is one of the handful of metal bands I like(d). In fact, they are probably the top of my list in that genre.
Vinnie always seemed like a good guy.. I know a couple people that ran into him in various places and said he was as down to earth as they come.
What an incredible drummer! Sad loss... but I'm encouraged to know that it was a heart attack, and not something else.. like we've seen so much of lately.
