This fucking sucks. Especially because Slipknot's my favourite band.

R.I.P., Mr. Gray.


Though, looking at it positively, this may just trigger Slipknot into making their next album absolutely killer in tribute to him...Always look on the bright side of life, motherfucker!

I'm no fan of Slipknot, but 38 is far too early for someone to die. 

RIP.

From Kerrang!:

Quote
According to the Associated Press, the body Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was discovered this morning (May 24) in a room in the Town Plaza hotel in the band's home town of Des Moines, Iowa. He was 38 years old.

No further details are available at this time, although local police say they intend to carry out an autopsy to determine the cause of his death tomorrow (Tuesday, May 25).

Prior to his death, Gray had been working on an album with HALE!, a metal supergroup featuring former Judas Priest frontman Tim 'Ripper' Owens and Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends and band mates at this sad time.

Cripes, it's 2009 all over again.  I know celebrities die just like the rest of us, but there's been just a slew lately, of all ages.  A shame.   :(
One Man Band Riffs.  18 riffs, over 600 served, since 2009.
