Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray Is Dead


Paul Gray, the bassist for nu-metal band Slipknot — best known for wearing terrifying clown masks, having numbers as stage names, and releasing fantastic 1999 single "Wait and Bleed" — was found dead in a hotel room Monday in Urbandale, Iowa. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, and foul play is not suspected. Gray was 38. [SF Gate]
