Someone has apparently posted an erroneous update on HELLYEAH’s Wikipedia page saying that the band have recruited Daniel Davison (ex-Every Time I Die/Norma Jean) as a replacement for the late Vinnie Paul Abbott. The group have since tweeted that those rumors are “absolute fake news.” HELLYEAH have yet to officially address their future, but they do plan to release a new album that Abbott drummed on before his death.

Far beyond honored to be asked to speak at my idol/friend’s funeral yesterday and represent #VinniePaul fans worldwide🙏🏽 This image taken after laying our hero to rest with family @dimebagzhag friend #nickbowcott and VP & Dimebag’s idol #acefrehley #kiss – Nick started off the services, Vin’s close friend Tim next, then me (!?!?!), then I introduced Ace, who brought up Paul singer from Rough Cut who sang, then Nick closed it out. It was all very surreal and hard to handle, but everyone in that place had so much love for Vinnie and being around each other helped us heal. #ripvinniepaul
