Slipknot bassist died of "accidental" overdose


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) ? The bassist for the Grammy-winning metal band Slipknot died of an "accidental" overdose of morphine and fentanyl, a synthetic morphine substitute, police in Iowa said on Monday as autopsy results were released.

Paul Gray, 38, was found dead on May 25 at a hotel near Des Moines, Iowa, the hometown of the band who always appear in public in grotesque masks, beat each other up on stage and call their fans "maggots." Gray co-founded the band in 1995.

An autopsy conducted by the Polk County Medical Examiner's Office also found that Gray suffered from "significant heart disease," according to a statement released by the Urbandale police department.

After Gray's death the eight surviving members of the band shocked fans by appearing in public for the first time without their trademark masks and coveralls to pay tribute to him. They were accompanied by Gray's wife Brenna who is pregnant with their first child.

Slipknot topped the charts in the United States, Britain and Australia with its most recent album, 2008's "All Hope Is Gone." The band won a Grammy in 2004 for its song "Before I Forget."

The band also became notorious for its performances in which members often broke each other's bones, set each other on fire, and injured their fans after diving into the crowd.   

R.I.P. dude.

DES MOINES, IOWA (AP)- The hotel employee who found Slipknot bassist Paul Gray dead in his hotel room told a 911 operator that there was a hypodermic needle next to Grays bed and there were "all kinds of pills everywhere".
TownePlace Suites maintenance worker Mike Kellow told the operator Monday morning that he found the 38 -year -old Grays body in a corner of his room slumped against a wall.
"Theres a hypodermic needle next to the bed here" Kellow said.
