According to the Star-Telegram, a small procession of limousines left Abbott's Dalworthington Gardens home on Tuesday (Dec. 14) at about 3 p.m. for the funeral service.

After the funeral, mourners said Abbott was buried in a KISS-themed casket, dubbed the "Kiss Kasket". In recent years, Abbott made recording appearances with one of his influences, Ace Frehley, KISS' first lead guitarist.

Rocker Eddie Van Halen and members of the band SLIPKNOT attended the funeral, where ex-ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell performed two songs, one acoustic and one folk, officials said.

Comedian Jim Florentine was in the VIP section at the public memorial service last night as DAMAGEPLAN drum technician John "Kat" Brooks walked by. Brooks' right hand was still bandaged from the gunshot wound he received during the rampage in Columbus last week, and he declined to be interviewed.

"He just made fans feel welcome," said Florentine, who was a friend and fan. "Whoever was there, he would treat you the same ... really rare in a guy of his status."

Vinnie Paul Abbott took the stage and pulled a life-size cutout of his brother close to him. Darrell Abbott gave his heart to everyone, his brother said. "He went down doing something he loved; he loved playing guitar."

"The brightest star in Texas is shining tonight. That's my brother Dimebag. Give it up."
