A 'viral' news story reported wrong. News regarding a pair of elderly gentlemen escaping their care facility to apparently rock out with the crowds at Wacken Open Air till 3am, turns out to have been a 58 & 59 year old escaping their Metal Healthcare Facility to party in the town near the festival. Aid was rendered to the men before being returning to their care facility.https://www.apnews.com/b626be4b1bd249e4978fc5c33fad5710Hellyeah seems to be indicating, on social media, that they are moving forward with the album they were recording at the time of drummer, Vinnie Paul's passing. Do to the nature of the post-humus completing production, it seems like they're in a some what unique position. I wonder how their approach will balance the earnest desire to tribute Vinnie Paul & the fans desire to hear the last recorded songs and the marketing.  MUSIC
