Visiting VINNIE PAUL And DIMEBAG's Final Resting Place (Video)

A husband-and-wife duo of PANTERA fans recently visited Vinnie Paul Abbott‘s final resting place and posted a 10-minute video of the experience. Check it out below.

The PANTERA and HELLYEAH drummer was buried on June 30 next to his brother, PANTERA guitarist ”Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, and their mother, Carolyn, at Moore Memorial Gardens cemetery in Arlington, Texas. He was laid to rest in a custom ”Kiss Kasket” provided by KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. The casket was offered as a gift at Vinnie‘s family’s request. Vinnie was also buried in some of his trademark clothes, including his hat, shoes and flannel.

Speakers at the service included former GRIM REAPER guitarist Nick Bowcott and SiriusXM DJ Jose Mangin. Also appearing at the event were original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley, DISTURBED‘s David Draiman, NICKELBACK‘s Chad Kroeger, ANTHRAX‘s Charlie Benante, FOZZY‘s Chris Jericho and ROUGH CUTT‘s Paul Shortino.

Vinnie‘s brother was buried in the original Kiss Kasket prototype in 2004 after his untimely death. The coffin featured the faces of the four founding members of KISS, the KISS logo and the words ”Kiss Forever.” Both Abbotts were huge fans, especially Darrell, who was shot dead by a gunman in December 2004.

A public memorial for Vinnie Paul was held on July 1 at Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas.

Vinnie passed away on June 22 at his home in Las Vegas at the age of 54. The drummer’s death ”did not appear suspicious,” according to the official report of the event recorded by Metropolitan Police officers. Sources close to Vinnie told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he suffered a ”major heart attack,” but that information has not been corroborated yet by an official source.

Vinnie had reportedly finished laying down drum tracks for the next HELLYEAH album, although there is no word yet on when that LP will see the light of day.

Rest in Peace, Dimebag Darrell, and Vinnie Paul. I finally got to have Dimetime.
