Vinnie formed Pantera with his late brother Dimebag Darrell in 1981.
Over 22 years, the band released nine albums, including the 1994 Billboard 200 chart-topper Far Beyond Driven. They recorded two other top 5 albums, The Great Southern Trendkill (1996) and Reinventing the Steel (2000). The band was nominated for four Grammys and sold over nine million albums before they disbanded in 2003.
Following the end of Pantera, Paul formed Damageplan with his brother in 2003. On December 8, 2004 Darrell was shot and killed on stage while performing with the band.
Paul began drumming for heavy metal supergroup Hellyeah (which included Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray and Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell) in 2006.
