Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray Found Dead

Written by John Ritchie on May 25, 2010

Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, known as #2 or ‘The Pig’ in their self-titled years, was found dead this morning in a Des Moines hotel room by a hotel worker.

Paul had previously dealt with drug and alcohol abuse, but life was looking up for the 38 year old, with an announcement on his MySpace page earlier this year that he was expecting a child with his wife Brenna.

While currently under investigation, preliminary reports from a source at the scene indicate a drug overdose.
