Slipknot Bassist Found Dead

Slipknot Bassist Found Dead

A hotel worker in Des Moines, Iowa, found Paul Gray of Slipknot dead of an apparent drug overdose today.  Paul had been in the band since its founding in 1995 and has ridden the highs and lows of fame with them ever since.  It was widely known that Paul suffered from addiction, but many friends and fans had hoped that the recent announcement of his wife’s pregnancy would be enough to change him for the better.  This is an all too common theme for the rock-and-roll lifestyle, and as a music lover I am getting sick to death of hearing it.  Too many great talents have been taken from us far too early, and now we have to Paul Gray to that list.  Whether or not you liked Slipknot, there is no debating that Paul Gray could wield a bad-ass bass.  He will be missed.

    I’m not a Slipknot fan but It is a shame.
    Not to sound like a dick but he wasn’t “taken from us”,he took himself away and did it to himself.

    I’m not really a fan of Slipknots music, I like some of the stuff, but after I saw them live last year I’ve loved the band itself. They put on a fantastic show and they really connect with the audience. I think it’s really sad that Gray died so early, but I can’t help getting pissed off at stuff like that; how can you do something like that to yourself when you have a family? When people die from ODs and such I don’t really feel sorry for the person, they did it to themselves, I feel sorry for the people around them. Anyway Paul Gray was a great musician and from what I’ve seen of interviews and such a great person. Rest in peace.
