PANTERA bass player Rex Brown took to his personal Facebook page to make the following public post:
“The last few days have been very difficult and painful. At this time, I need more time to process my feelings.
“Thank you for all the love that has been sent. A formal press release will be coming shortly. Rest in peace, brother Vinnie!”
“This is not about me; it’s about the love, amazing times and friendship we had long ago.
“Everybody is going through their own strife with this.
“Pray for Jerry Abbott [father of Vinnie Paul and ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott]. No man should have to bury two incredible sons in one lifetime.
“God bless. You will hear my deepest feelings in the days to come.”
