Dallas Observer: "I'm crushed. Vinnie was a great friend for many years. He was first class with a heart of gold. He was loved by all who knew him as [well as] those who had just met him for a minute. This isn't even addressing how incredibly talented of a drummer he was. He had a big impact on my playing. The tour that TYPE O did with PANTERA in 1995 was absolutely incredible. Those memories will last a lifetime, and I'm honored to have them."
