Paul passed away early Saturday morning in Las Vegas, sending shock-waves across the music world. The official cause of death has yet to be announced. 

Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo posted an image of a lit candle and bassist Rex Brown stated: 

"The last few days have been very difficult and painful. At this time, I need more time to process my feelings. 

Thank you for all the love that has been sent. A formal press release will be coming shortly. Rest In Peace Brother Vinnie!"

Former Guns N' Roses drummer Sorum called Paul “a monster of a drummer” and added: "Thanks for all the good times and the hospitality at The Clubhouse in Dallas . A true Rock'n'roll spirit that will be truly missed.”
