[This is] a very special song that we didn't do last year. But I thought it was right, and especially right to do it today. I'd like to dedicate this song to a dear friend of mine, Mr. Vinnie Paul, who we lost last night. "
"This [song] is to celebrate, not to be down. Let's celebrate the life. God bless you. Tell the ones you're with you love them every day. This song is for all of you."
Vinnie Paul and his brother founded Pantera back in the 80s.
Vinnie Paul passed away on Friday last week (June 22) at his Las Vegas home. Reports are saying that he has died of a massive heart attack in his sleep. His body is due to be flown back to Texas for proper burial.
