    MUSIC MOURNS DUE TOMthe passing of Vincent Paul Abbott. He was laid to rest be- tween his mother Carolyn and his brother Darrell in Moore Memo- rial Gardens in Arlington, TX “Vinnie Paul,” as he was known to friends and fans, was born in Abilene, March 11, 1964.

    His father, Jerry, wrote and produced country music, so mu- sic was in the Abbott brothers’ blood with “Diamond” (later “Dimebag”) Darrell on guitar and Vinnie Paul choosing to play drums. The family moved to Pantego, TX and the boys founded Pantera in 1981, releasing Metal Magic (1983), Projects in the Jungle (1984) and I Am the Night (1985) with bassist Rex Brown and vo- calist Terry Glaze.

    Glaze was replaced by Philip Anselmo in 1986 and the band released Power Metal in 1988, but it was 1990’s Cowboys from Hell that brought Pantera to national and then international attention and with a heavier sound followed by 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power, and Far Beyond Driven, which de- buted at #1 on Billboard charts in 1994.

    Vinnie Paul and Dime divested their interests by opening the in- famous home-away-from-home for every touring band, BYOB af- ter hours strip joint The Club- house in Dallas. His endorsements

    included Tama and Pearl drums, Remo heads and hardware, ddrum, Sabian cymbals and Vic Firth drumsticks.

    Despite tensions amongst the band members, 1996 brought fans The Great Southern Trendkill and 2000 ’s Reinventing the Steel. Anselmo left Pantera, and the Brothers Abbott went on to form Damageplan with Bob Zilla on bass and Pat Lachman on vocals, releasing New Found Power in 2004. The brutal murder of Darrell onstage at an Ohio club on the ensuing tour shocked the music community but Vinnie Paul was back behind the kit after a few years with supergoup Hellyeah on his own label Big Vin Records, as well as becoming a producer of a roster featuring collaborations with David Allen Coe, Cowboys from Hell, Seventh Void, Fountain- head, Hillbilly Orchestra, come- dian The Chinaman and the Dimevision DVDs.

    One of his passions was cook- ing. He had spent the last few years of his life living in Las Vegas, where he passed away in his sleep of a massive heart attack on June 22, 2018.

    His cemented musical legacy will live on but more so his legacy of kindness and generosity with friends and fans alike.

    He will be missed. -COLLEEN MORGAN
