- 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.
- Hellyeah 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.
