Vinnie Paul will be buried in a KISS-branded casket, just like his brother “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was after he was killed in 2004, TMZ reports.
According to the gossip site, the late Pantera co-founder will be buried on Saturday in Arlington, Texas, in the same cemetery where Dimebag and their mom lie. As previously reported, a public memorial for Paul will be held Sunday, July 1 at the Bomb Factory concert venue in Dallas.
Following Paul’s death, KISS’ Paul Stanley tweeted, “So sad to hear of the death of Vinnie Paul. Loved when Pantera did shows with us and in later years Vinnie was always front and center at all KISS shows. RIP and condolences to his family.”
Gene Simmons added, “Rest in peace, Vinnie. Our prayers and good wishes go to his family, friends and fans.”
Paul died last Friday at age 54. An official cause of death has yet to be announced.
