Pantera Reveal Vinnie Paul’s Headstone
Originally posted by a Dimebag Darrell fan page on Facebook, the headstone 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!”
Vinnie died on June 22 last year and was buried beside is brother Dimebag Darrell on June 30. A placeholder headstone is currently marking the grave, but this new ornate headstone is set to be laid soon.
Following the reveal on the fan page, Pantera posted a clarification on Instagram stating that the image was posted without permission, but once the grave marker was placed, they will let fans know.
“There is a lot of bad info floating around about Vinnie’s grave marker,” reads the statement. “The photo you have seen was unauthorized. It was taken & released without our permission. The marker has not been placed on Vinnie’s grave yet. Once it has been placed - we will post & officially let you know. Here is a photo of the entire marker. Please don’t believe random things you read on the internet.”

“[Vinnie would] be pissed off at all of us for putting all this work into finishing the record and then just letting it sit there on the shelf while we put a couple of songs to radio and whatever… and we know that,” said bassist Kyle Sanders.
Hellyeah’s new album Welcome Home will be released September 27 via Eleven Seven Music.
