Slipknot Bass Player Found Dead.
    #423309 - 05/24/10 06:05 PM (6 years, 6 months ago)

Not that I'm a Slipknot fan, but they are from my home state.

Police say the bassist for the Iowa metal band Slipknot has been found dead in a suburban Des Moines hotel room.

Urbandale police say a hotel employee found 38-year-old Paul Dedrick Gray dead in a room at the Town Plaza Hotel. Foul play wasn't suspected.

The Polk County Medical Examiner's Office plans an autopsy Tuesday.

Most Slipknot members grew up in the Des Moines area. The band, known for its grotesque masks, released its first album in 1999. It sold more than 1 million copies.

He used to come in and order pizza from a place I used to work at all the time. He was a nice guy.

And this is why people should not play with fire.  He is one of many to kill themselves with drugs.  It will happen again.

ps Iowa and Slipknot suck

also, RIP my fellow smackhead

So.... this one time I was at a concert slipknot played in.


I left when they hit the stage, listened to their set list from outside of the gates.

They freaking rock.
I was looking forward to travling to see them again this year.

BTW, the dude who died last week was not due to smack, or any other drug.

Well, technically, lol.

The two guitarists couldn't even speak, wow.

They might as well be brothers man, traveled the world together many times over, got to do a lot of shit many people never get to do.  They looked like they were kinda pissed cuz they knew it was gonna happen one day and tried everything to get him to stop doing what he was doing.  Such a shame, especially with the kid on the way.  RIP brotha, God rest your soul.

:nonono:

Stay sic maggots :rockon:

Not so my friend.(I think)

Slipknot had a few different lineup changes back in the day and people were replaced by other people.  Maybe they did go to school together, I'm not 100%, but they didn't always have the 9, well 8, they have now. You find that in an article?

From what I've heard, these guys were just bored in Iowa and decided to either get better at playing, or learn to play.
