Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, 38, found dead

Associated Press

Paul Gray, bassist with the metal band Slipknot, was found dead Monday in a hotel room in Urbandale, Iowa. He was 38.

Police said a hotel employee discovered Gray's body in a room at the Town Plaza Hotel in Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. Foul play isn't suspected. An autopsy is planned for Tuesday.

A person who answered the phone at the band's record company, Roadrunner Records, declined to comment. Most of the band's members grew up in the Des Moines area.

Slipknot's self-titled debut in 1999 sold more than a million copies.

Known for its grotesque masks, the band won a Grammy in 2006 for best metal performance for the song "Before I Forget." Concert industry trade publication Pollstar ranked Slipknot 18th in its Top 20 Concert Tours list in 2009.

Personally Kay's a fan....RIP
