Phil Anselmo To The Late Vinnie Paul: I Will “Always Have Love In My Heart For You”

A public memorial was held for the late Vinnie Paul Abbott (Pantera, HELLYEAH) at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, TX today (July 1). During the event, a number of friends and family paid their respects to the legendary drummer in person and via video. The whole thing was streamed on the Pantera Facebook page and can be seen below. Notably, one of the pre-recorded videos came from Vinnie Paul’s former Pantera bandmate Phil Anselmo, who had the following to say: “Vince, always have love in my heart for you, man. Rest in peace.” Abbott had a bitter estranged relationship with Anselmo over the years and remained on non-speaking terms with the him until his death. Abbott was laid to rest at Moore Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Arlington, TX, alongside his late brother and bandmate Dimebag Darrell Abbott, and their late mother. An official cause of a death has yet to be revealed, but early reports have suggested his death was the result of a “major heart attack.”
