MTV reports that former Pantera/Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul performed with his band Gasoline in Arlington, Texas on New Year's Eve and was joined onstage by former Pantera bassist Rex Brown.

The band, with Brown, performed two Pantera songs: 'Walk' and 'Cowboys From Hell'. The gig marked the first time the two former bandmates had shared the same stage in five years.

In June of 2004, KNAC.COM's Jeff Kerby sat down with Vinnie Paul for an exclusive interview, in which Vinnie talked about Gasoline and the New Year's Eve Pantera tradition:

KNAC.COM: Another project you worked on after Pantera was in a band called Gasoline, and that group actually did perform at least once. What happened with that effort?

VINNIE: Let me explain what Gasoline was: Pantera played every New Year’s Eve until about ’97. After that, the other two guys decided they didn’t want to play on New Year’s Eve, and that was my favorite time to play. Me and Dime decided that we’d put together a good time band and just do cover tunes and it was all about beer drinkin’ and hell raisin’. Our original songs were called things like, “Get Drunk Now” and “This Ain’t a Beer Belly, It’s a Gas Tank For My Love Machine.” It was just fun shit, and we’d do other stuff like Ted Nugent or Pat Travers. We’d just do kick ass classic rock, and we’d only play on New Year’s Eve, and we did it for like five years. Somehow or another word got out and it was like, “Vinnie and Dimebag got this side band called Gasoline.” The last year we did it, we opened up for Drowning Pool. Pantera never played with Drowning Pool, and that was the last time we played with them. Everybody knows what happened to Dave after that. It was a great show and a great time though. We played there and the Clubhouse—we did double duty that night. It was cool.
