VINNIE: Touring With SLAYER And KING DIAMOND Is ‘Dream Come True’

Vinny recently sat down with Simon the WRRV Interview Series. You can listen to the entire interview below.

Asked if he was looking forward to HELLYEAH’s participation in this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with SLAYER, Vinnie said: “Oh yeah, man. SLAYER is one of my favorite bands of all time, and to be on a tour with them is absolutely a dream come true. In 1999, we did a thing called the ‘Reinventing The Steel’ tour with PANTERA, when I was still with them, and SLAYER was part of that, and it was a great tour. And we’ve just been killer friends for a long time. So playing with them, and also the mighty KING DIAMOND, is gonna be a dream come true, man. It’s gonna be something I’m really looking forward to, and every metalhead needs to be there this summer.”
