The House of Blues in Las Vegas was the setting for Hellyeah to honor the life of their late drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott on Saturday night (May 11.) The show marked the band’s debut concert with Stone Sour’s Roy Mayorga, who has stepped in as Vinnie Paul’s replacement. Mayorga was officially added to the band on May 6 and at the time, the band said he was the perfect guy for the job. The band stated: “These men had so much love and mutual respect for each other, this makes our transition so much easier.” Not long before his death last summer, Vinnie Paul laid down the drum tracks for Hellyeah’s sixth album, which is tentatively due this summer.
