With today being the four year anniversary since Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul passed away, we thought it would be touching to share this video of two Pantera fans visiting important landmarks associated with the life of Paul and his brother Dimebag Darrell.
Uploaded to YouTube a couple years ago, the video comes from the channel SCOTT ON TAPE – Your Pop Culture Tour Guide; per the description associated with this channel, “I visit pop culture landmarks & all the areas in between.”
In this video, Scott and fellow Pantera fan X travel around Texas and visit various places associated with that of the late Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. The video begins with the two fans visiting the grave site of the brothers (who happen to be buried alongside their mom). Eventually, the fans make their way to a childhood home the brothers grew up in, and then to some studios they worked in.
The tour makes for a really touching and melancholic time that allows for Pantera fans to experience some of the history behind these incredible artists. It is so devastating that both Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul are gone; we hope that both brothers are at peace. Together, the brothers helped to create one of the greatest musical acts to ever be. They will always be remembered and live on in our hearts – to this day, their music is listened to by millions of people around the globe.

During a recent interview, Nitro guitarist Michael Angelo Batio shared how the late Vinnie Paul had told him some details about the infamous shooting that took place on December 8th, 2004; this is of course the shooting where Dimebag Darrell lost his life.
The details that Paul shared with Batio are chilling. To read everything that the late Pantera drummer had to say, follow the link below.
