Plagiarism?[edit]

Am concerned that, having spent some time looking up information about Vinnie Paul on the internet, large parts of this Wikipedia article seem to have been copied directly or paraphrased from an article at http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Vinnie_Paul.html As such, unless the author of that article and this article are one and the same and/or are the copyright holder of the article at Drummerworld.com, then large parts of this Wikipedia article need to be removed from the site.

recent edit war[edit]

Can I strongly suggest that editors on this article find a reliable source to verify and cite the disputed date? If you can't find one, then why not leave it out? This is an article about a living person, and we need to be careful to get the facts right and to prove that we have too. I for one would like to see many more citations and references throughout the article.--Slp1 (talk) 16:06, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

It is no use pointing this out to the editor adding the unsourced information, as he doesn't want to reason (Look at the other articles he's warring on). I completely agree though, and I will try to source as much as I can. Erzsébet Báthory(talk|contr.) 18:18, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I am new and thus am unable to edit on this could someone now do this?

He no longer plays his Pearl drum kits he is now with Ddrum. I will find his kit later in the day. Themyldeone (talk) 20:38, 10 December 2008 (UTC)Themyldeone

Error on Vinnie Paul's mothers name[edit]

Her name was Carolyn Abbott. This article has 'Carolina'. I know, because the site that has photos of Dimebag Darrell Abbott's grave also has his mother's grave, and it is Carolyn Abbott (deceased September 12, 1999). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tamarageil (talkcontribs) 23:01, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
