HELLYEAH will be performing a special tribute show on May 11 in honor of late drummer Vinnie Paul, and the band has just announced who will be guesting behind the kit.
Per the band’s Facebook page, Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga was confirmed for the gig. Along with a photo of Mayorga with Paul was the following caption: “Please welcome our dear friend and brother Roy Mayorga, who will be guesting behind the drum kit as we honor our brother Vinnie Paul. These men had so much love and mutual respect for each other, this makes our transition so much easier. Ready or not, here we come!”
