On May 24, 2010, The Des Moines Register reported that Slipknot bassist Paul Gray had been found dead at a room in the Town Plaza hotel in Urbandale, Iowa. He is survived by his wife Brenna. He and his wife were expecting their first child at the time of his death.
I remember seeing Slipknot at Ozzfest back in 1999. Best wishes to the family, he will be missed.
