Slipknot bassist Paul Gray found dead aged 38

Slipknot bassist Paul Gray has been found dead in his hotel room in the United States at the age of 38.

Police do not expect any foul play with regards to his death though Paul has previously admitted publicly that he was fighting a drug and drink problem but a full toxicology and autopsy will be performed to find out the true reason for his passing.

His death comes only five months after he announced his happiness on MySpace that he was to become a father for the first time which made him “the happiest man on the face of the earth – literally!”.

Last month Paul announced that he would be joining supergroup Hail! for all upcoming tours, replacing David Ellefson due to his commitments with Megadeth.

The thoughts of everyone at EspyRock are with his family and friends, especially his wife at this time.
