Pantera Covered All Songs From Guns N' Roses' Appetite


(Classic Rock) Vinnie Paul says Pantera covered every song on Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction before they hit the big time. The former Pantera and current Hellyeah drummer says that before they signed their first major record deal, Pantera were obsessed with Guns N' Roses' 1987 debut album and covered all 12 tracks.

Paul tells WRIF (via Blabbermouth): "It was huge, man. Before Pantera got a record deal, that album came out, and we covered just about every song on that record and it was before that band blew up.

"We were such fans of the music. And it took that record about a year before it caught on, and then it caught on. Man, it's one of my all-time favourite records. To this day, Welcome To The Jungle, you hear it in front of every football game, in front of every hockey game, it won't go away.

"And that's a great thing when there's a song that has that kind of life. And then, of course, they're back doing it and they're touring. I saw them the other night at the big, gigantic here in Dallas, and I thought it was amazing." Read more here.
