The bassist for Grammy award winning band Slipknot was found dead in his Iowa hotel room. Many are left wondering, how did Paul gray die?

Well, so far the details are vague. There was no evidence of foul pay, but there will be an investigation. He was only 38 years old.

Of course death photos will be a hot search as they are with any celebrity, but don’t expect those to pop up just anywhere.

Here is a brief biography on Paul Gray, also being spelled Paul Grey. He was born on April 8, 1972 so he was a fresh 38. He is also known by other stage names, #2 or The Pig.

He has always been involved with music playing in various bands as a teenager, and aside from Slipknot, he also played bass for Unida during their 2003 tour and a few other bands. He is one of Slipknot’s founding members, and was the only one to keep his original role in the band. He is famous for wearing a pig mask, but originally taped his head.

It seems he has had drug issues in the past. In 2003 he crashed into a vehicle, and upon searching his car, police reportedly found cocaine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. He was arrested for possession and failure to obey a traffic signal.

Hopefully drugs did not play a role in his passing, but the cause of death has yet to be determined. As with all deaths, we shall have to wait and see. Paul will be greatly missed.
