Rest in Peace, Vinnie.

UPDATE: “Vinnie’s family tells TMZ … he died in his sleep at his home in Las Vegas.”

The Phil Anselmo-led Pantera broke up in 2003, at which point Vinnie and his brother and Pantera bandmate Dimebag Darrell started the band Damageplan. Darrell was murdered on stage in 2004. Vinnie joined Hellyeah in 2006 and was still a member at the time of his death. Vinnie was 54, and was reportedly in Las Vegas where he has a home at the time of his death.
