Another Sad Day In Metal

Another sad day in the world of metal, the bassist Paul Gray from Slipknot was found dead. Damn, I guess if you believe in the power of three that was the conclusion. First Peter Steele of Type O Negative, then Ronnie James Dio and now Paul Gray of Slipknot. He was a good friend of a my buddy Nick back in San Francisco and used to come in our club all the time to hang out as he could do it anonymously back in the day when know one really knew who was behind the masks in Slipknot. Give Slipknot a listen as Paul was one of the founding members of this carnival of chaos that took the metal world by storm and turned it on its head. Thanks for killer bass lines, you will be missed.
