HellYeah Recruites Stone Sour Roy Mayorga As New Drummer

HellYeah Tribute To Vinnie
Hellyeah have announced that they have recruited Stone Sour’s Roy Mayorga to join them at a special show to honor their late drummer, Pantera legend Vinnie Paul, who died last year at the age of 54. The band will be playing a special concert dubbed “Hellyeah: Celebrating the Life of Vinnie Paul Abbott – One Night Only” this Saturday, May 11th at the House of Blues in Las Vegas. This follows the supergroup’s earlier hint that a member of their extended “metal family” would play with the band in place of Vinnie Paul. Mayorga has been a member of Stone Sour, the hard rock group fronted by Slipknot singer Corey Taylor, since 2006. He’s performed on each of the band’s albums since that same year’s Come What(ever) May. He’s also been a member of Ministry, Nausea, Soulfly and others.
