I still can't believe how people can be so mean just because they didn't like someone's music/movies/tv shows etc. He was a PERSON who had a FAMILY and FRIENDS just like everyone else. He loved, and was loved, no matter how "****ty" all you Bieber listening ****s thought his music was! Jump off a bridge so you can stop wasting my air!

So I guess he doesn't need the mask anymore, once his face rots it'll match the mask and it's color LOL, swim in eternal fire Evildoer.

No sympathy for the wicked and spewing your vile music, hopefully you made amends.

all 3 notes? your really beating urself up inside arnt u? slipknots stage performance was outstanding and not very many bands, if any, can match what they have done, if you wanna talk **** about someone who died bc u didnt agree with the fans or music then that is a personal opinion and please if you have anymore personal opinions then write them on a large piece of paper, stick it in a envelope, AND SHOVE IT UP UR ASS!!!!

you people are A%$ H@#! guys think your better than everyone else..matter of fact you guys are probably a bunch of nobodys thats why you make those dumb comments...

damn sooo much negativity in these comments. you guys should at least show some remorse for the dood, i mean he was someones son. its not cool to straight up bash on a guy whos died, no matter how he died or he was associated with. and besides there are some good songs by slipknot so take it easy with all the negativity, i mean we're all gonna die some day and i'm positive we don't want rude/insensitive comments made about us. Rip Paul
