That’s from Pantera’s Facebook page. He was 54.

One of the best drummers in the genre no doubt. Very sad day, him and dimebag were a powerhouse. RIP

The chance for burying the hatchet with Phil and Rex is gone now.

Sad stuff. Great drummer and way too young to die. Always gave the impression though that he never managed to come to terms with his brothers death.

How could he ever be the same again after an incident like that. I’d say every day was a struggle. Poor guy.

Man, what a bummer. He was an incredible drummer and seemed like a good guy. Way too young to die.

Another one gone. When I read the Rex Brown book I cane away thinking both Vinnie Paul and Rex were idiots. I would loved to have heard his side of the tale. I wonder had he been ill or did life catch up on him. Fuck it anyway.

Very sad news indeed. Aulthough i had no real interest in anything he did post pantera, he was a fantastic drummer and shaped some of the most influential albums of the 90's.

That's pretty sad and a big shock to wake up to. He was a huge influence on me as a kid learning drums, I played the fuck out of Vulgar Display of Power as I was of the age when it came out and it was great to see them supporting Megadeth on that tour; their set was everything I could have hoped for at the time. Pantera will be played today!

Sad news. As a metal fan and a drummer, he changed the way I thought about both. RIP
