Is Vinnie Paul of Hellyeah and Pantera Going to Open a Strip Club in Phoenix?

Back in 2007 when Vinnie Paul and Chad Gray announced their new band Hellyeah, fans weren't sure what to expect of group made from members of Mudvayne, Pantera, Damageplan, and Nothingface. No doubt it was going to be heavy, but would it gear towards visual theatrics and sonic experimentation like Mudvayne? Dabble in Southern metal like Pantera, whose fans were still reeling after the death of guitarist Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott just a few years earlier?
