Vinnie Paul Doesn't Think Pantera Will Ever Be Inducted Into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Ex-Pantera and current Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul revealed his doubts about Pantera being ever inducted into Rock Hall.

Matt Wake of AL.com recently conducted an interview with Paul (via Blabbermouth). "Uh, I don't really think so, man," said Paul. "It's already been proven there are tons of travesties that have gone on with that place. How in the world did it take forever to get Black Sabbath in there?

"Honestly, I don't think PANTERA will ever get in there. But if we do, I'm going to embrace it just like anything else. I've actually been there and heavy metal is barely even represented in the place, so I wouldn't expect that to happen."


Vinnie Paul also shared his opinion on Pantera's debut record, "Far Beyond Driven," which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

"Being a part of the production of every record I've ever been a part of, I really, really appreciate the fact it was recorded analog," he said. "It was before Pro Tools existed and music became simple, you could cut, paste and do that. Back then you had to play every single note that was on there, man. And you had to sing every note and (play) every drum lick and every part, and you had to be really good to get all that stuff right. I really do appreciate that more than ever."
