There is no way to sugar-coat this: as much as I love me some recent supergroups, Hellyeah is the super group to end all super groups. Featuring Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray, Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell, and Pantera drummer (and brother of Dimebag Darrell) Vinnie Paul, Hellyeah has one helluva pedigree. Cool thing is, they don’t boast about it, and they sure as hell don’t rely on it. Each time they take the stage, it’s a masters’ class in how to earn cred the honest way; they rock ridiculously hard, give everything to their performance and their audience, and reach fans with their energy, their music, and their message. Oh yes, their music has a message; don’t be ashamed of your mistakes, don’t be afraid to make them, don’t be a dumbass and forget to learn from them. Hellyeah gave Shiprockers a stand-out performance, difficult to categorize, let alone photograph… and Croce thought saving time in a bottle was hard.
