More sad news for music fans, as Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was found dead in his hotel room Monday. He was 38.
The heavy metal musician, well known for wearing horror movie-like masks, was discovered by an employee of the Iowa hotel he was staying in. According to the Des Moines Register, there was no evidence of foul play. An autopsy with toxicology tests is scheduled for Tuesday.
The band' publicist verified Gray's death, but did not go into specifics.
"I can confirm that the news is sadly true," she told EW.com, "But that is all I can offer at this time."
Sadly, according to friends of Gray's, he and his wife Brenna were expecting a child together.
"Paul had a lot going for him, and a lot coming," KAZR-FM (103.3) music director Andy Hall said. "I know he was excited about being a dad. It makes an already extremely difficult situation more unthinkable."
