Nickelback's Kroeger brothers, singer Chad and bassist Mike, have shared stories about their run-ins with Pantera before. Namely, Mike has previously talked about the times they spent drinking with late Pantera siblings Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul Abbott. More recently, however, the Nickelback bass player remembered how hard it was to even keep up with Pantera's hard-partying ways.
Indeed, during one occasion when the Nickelback kin knocked back some drinks with Dime and Vinnie, Mike checked out early without saying goodbye. But his brother Chad stayed around and finished the job, as the Nickelback bassist recollected in an August podcast interview.
