    Although this news has no direct affiliation with Linkin Park, it is our sad duty to report that Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray, otherwise known as #2 or 'The Pig' during earlier years, was today found dead in a hotel in Urbandale, Des Moines, IA. He is survived by his wife Brenna who is expecting a child.

    You may remember that Slipknot shared the main stage with Linkin Park during the 2001 edition of the Ozzfest tour. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Gray family during this difficult time.

    That's the same thing I was thinking... two of my favorite musicians on earth too:(
    I'd be devastated if something happened to Chester in all honesty. He's my favorite vocalist of all time.

    God forbid. We'd all be devastated. That would be a terrible loss.

    Sad day... To many great people passing on. I think what hurts the most is his wife is expecting child. I don't know how life would have been for my wife if something had happen to me before my daughters birth. R.I.P Paul.

    I realize that everyone dies at one point in time but so many great artists have died in 2010 so far, it's crazy. :(

    I think it's all the more tragic that his wife is pregnant with his child.

    EDIT: Wow...such was the impact of Slipknot the BBC are reporting this.

    R.I.P. Paul.
    I didn't listen much of Slipknot yet, but some songs touched me a lot. I am shocked too by seeing how many artists are disappearing, seriously. Don't forget Chi, bassist of Deftones, who is coma since months. Even if through that the band made one of the best albums i've ever heared, it still isn't worthy the loss.
    Hope the wife of Paul makes it through right.
