I guess his calendar’s a few years old, because last night in Colorado, HellYeah’s Vinnie Paul thought it was Halloween, and dressed as a bloated King Diamond.
All the members of HellYeah dressed up for their gig in Broomfield, opening for Five Finger Death Punch.
A dude named Brandon Marshall shot snaps on the guys in costume, which can be found here.
Funny story: Vinnie Paul is recognizable from a mile away.
Especially in New Jersey, where no one wears cowboy hats.
I was walking back to a parking garage in Newark recently, and saw Vinnie walking outside with a gang of other dudes, near where the New Jersey Devils play.
“Vinnie,” I said, extending my fist for a bump, “what are you doing here?”
“We’re playing tomorrow night,” he replied.
“Good to see you dude,” I added as Vinnie kept walking.
It was weird. I’ve interviewed the dude several times, so I’m not shocked I immediately recognized him.
I never expected, though, to see Vinnie Paul walking out of a fucking parking garage in Jersey. It was surreal.
