Ripper Talks About Dead Slipknot Bassist

Posted By on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 9:33 AM


Slipknot bassist Paul "#2" Gray was found dead in an Iowa hotel room on Monday.

Between 'knot albums, Gray, 38, had just signed on play with Hail, an all-star metal cover band fronted by Akron's Tim "Ripper" Owens. Owens sent us a note about his fallen comrade:

"I would like to send my condolences to [Gray's] family. "I played three or four times on stage with Paul and crossed paths a few other times throughout the years. He was always a great guy to be around and a great talent! I was looking forward to doing this Hail run with Paul on Bass. Once again, let's pray for his family and keep them in our thoughts in their time of need." —D.X. Ferris
