DIMEBAG And VINNIE PAUL – Fence Erected At Graves!

A protective fence has been erected around the graves of legendary PANTERA guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and his brother, PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, reportedly “to guard them from vandalism.”

Vinnie Paul‘s grave marker at Moore Memorial Gardens was officially installed in May 2019. That same day, two pictures of the gravesite were released via PANTERA‘s social media, along with the message: “We ask that you please be respectful when visiting the brothers’ graves.”

A message engraved on Vinnie Paul‘s grave marker reads: “Don’t ever think it’s not a good time, if you do think it’s not a good time. A good time is a good time, a bad time is a bad time, and a wonderful time is irreplaceable. Hellyeah!”

After it was reported back in 2010 that Dimebag‘s grave was vandalized, Vinnie Paul was asked by Artisan News if the person responsible for causing the damage had ever been apprehended. “Nah, nah,” he replied. “But it’s just a real disrespectful thing. I don’t understand why somebody would wanna scratch their name in somebody’s tombstone or anything. But fans are rabid, man; they do unheard-of things. I just wish they would respect him and let him rest in peace and just leave it at that.”

The PANTERA and HELLYEAH drummer was buried on June 30, 2018 next to Dimebag and their mother, Carolyn. 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.
