Over the weekend legendary drummer Vinnie Paul was laid to rest in Arlington, TX, fittingly buried in a Kiss Kasket just like his brother Dimebag and right next to him at the Moore Memorial Gardens cemetery. Among those that had words to say at the funeral were former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehly and Vinnie’s long time friend Nick Bowcott from the metal band Grim Reaper.
On Sunday at 3:33 PM a public celebration of life was held at the Bomb Factory in Dallas. Vinnie’s Hellyeah! drum set sat idol on stage with video messages from Pantera singer Phil Anselmo, Ozzy Osbourne, Corey Taylor, Dave Mustaine and more played on screen. The entire event is available for streaming below.
RIP (Rest in Power) Vinnie Paul Abbott.
