‘Sadly, it is true… Vince Gil has left us. He’s been very frail for quite some time and mercifully no longer needs to be constrained by his mortal form,’ he wrote. 
Paul went on to recall his fondest memory of Vince, which took place during a tour of Japan in 2015. 
‘He was already in less-than-ideal health, and in the opening days a couple of us were concerned about his ability to get through the long demanding days of convention and socialising and travel and convention,’ he admitted, before adding: ‘We need not have been concerned.’

‘Vince was remarkable – he rose to the occasion every time, fed off the energy of the wonderful Japanese fans, and on the occasions when I’d glance at him and be worried about his ability to keep going, he’d shrug off any concerns and showed that he had a lot more stamina than many of we much younger men,’ he continued. 
Paul completed his post with a tribute to Vincent and his iconic character Nightrider by referencing a famous scene from Mad Max. 
‘Rest well old friend – we will remember you when we look at the night sky,’ he wrote.
