All day, the metal community has been coping with the huge loss of Vinnie Paul Abbott. He was only 54 years old. Up until this point, not much was known about how the HELLYEAH / Pantera guitarist passed away but TMZ managed to get some information.

They are reporting that in speaking with the family, they learned that Vinnie died in his sleep. Here is the update from TMZ:

Vinnie’s family tells TMZ … he died in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas. His body’s been turned over to the medical examiner to determine a cause of death, and after that he’ll be flown back to his home state of Texas to be buried between his mom and brother.

The report from the examiner could take anywhere from weeks to months, so it might be quite a while until we find out the true reason for Vinnie’s passing.

The metal and rock community have been coming out in droves with touching tributes to the late legendary drummer. Vinnie Paul was very much beloved by the community and everybody has a great story to share about his life. We’ve been updating the tribute wall with all the social media posts from the community.
