Friends, family and former band mates gathered in Dallas, Texas, on Sunday to pay tribute to Vinnie Paul Abbott
Friends, family and former band mates gathered at the Bomb Factory in Dallas, Texas, on Sunday (July 1) to pay tribute to late Pantera/Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott. The legendary hard rocker passed away in his sleep on June 22 in Las Vegas at age 54 and the public memorial featured a video tribute from former Pantera singer Phil Anselmo, who had been estranged from Abbott for years. In his first comments on Abbott's death, Anselmo said, "Vince, always have love in my heart for you, man. Rest in peace."
