On May 24 the body of Slipknot’s bassist Paul Grey was found at the Town Plaza hotel in Urbandale, Iowa.¬† Paul was 38 years old and is survived by his wife Brenna who was expecting their first child at the time of his death.

An unmasked Slipknot, along with Paul’s wife, payed tribute to their bandmate and their brother¬† a press conference held earlier today.

“”Paul Gray was the essence of the band slipknot. Paul was there from the very very beginning and none of us would be on the path we’re on right now in life or have the sorts of lives we have without him. He was a really great friend and a really great person. He’s going to be sadly missed, and the world is going to be a different place without him.” – Shawn Crahan
