SLIPKNOT BASSIST PAUL GRAY DEAD AT 38

Urbandale police are reporting that Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was found dead in a hotel this morning.(VIDEO)

The cause of death is unknown. Police say they found no signs of foul play, and band insiders are stating that a drug overdose may have been the cause,but there is no proof of that at this time.(TMZ)

There will be an investigation into his death.(SOURCE)

Gray, who was one of the original members of Slipknot when they formed in 1995, was expecting his first child with his wife Brenna.

An autopsy is reported to be scheduled for tomorrow.

Gray used to wear tape around his head for his mask. Later, he switched to a Halloween styled Pig mask which he used for the self-titled era, and it represented his indulgent personality.
