Phil Anselmo appeared via video link yesterday at the public memorial service (opens in new tab) to his late Pantera bandmate Vinnie Paul.
And at the weekend event, Anselmo spoke briefly to the crowd at the Bomb Factory in Dallas, saying: “I will always have love in my heart for you. Rest in peace.”
The event saw tributes pour in for Vinnie from both the stage and via video from the people who knew him best.
The full video of the public memorial can be watched below.
Vinnie was buried at a private service on Saturday at the Moore Memorial Gardens cemetery in Arlington, Texas, next to his mother Carolyn and his brother "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
Vinnie was buried in a ‘Kiss Kasket’ which was provided by the band’s Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.
Stanley said on Twitter: “The rock community is reeling from the loss of Vinnie Paul, a friend and inspiration to so many.
“If his family in fact would want him to be placed in a Kiss casket we will make sure it happens. It is their decision and I will be proud for us to honour it.”
The official cause of Vinnie’s death is still to be made public, although the Las Vegas Review-Journal report that local police say that it “did not appear suspicious.”
