Vinnie Paul will be buried in a Kiss Casket from Gene & Paul, just like his brother Dimebag Darrell was
Sources close to Vinnie’s family tell TMZ that the recently deceased musician and Pantera co-founder will be buried in a custom KISS casket provided by Simmons and co.
We’re told the casket was offered as a gift at Vinnie’s family’s request. His brother, “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott was buried in the original prototype in 2004 after his untimely death. As we reported … Vinnie died in his sleep this past week, but the cause of death is unknown for now. He was 54.
Vinnie will also be buried in some of his clothes — including his hat, shoes and flannel … among other items. We’re told Vinnie will be put into the ground Saturday at the same cemetery in Arlington, TX, where Darrell and his mom lie.
A family source tells us a public memorial concert honoring Vinnie is going down Sunday at the Bomb Factory in Dallas at 3:33 CST. The time is said to be a tribute to Darrell — known as “Dime Time.” The event is free, wristbands will be given out at noon.
