Not a fan of his music but its sad to see someone so young pass. Lets hope its not from his doing, he has a history of drug abuse. Must be hard on the family and band mates.

Another talented musician lost at an early age. Yes, I consider 38 to be an early age to pass away. I wish the best for all his family and friends, and all the people on here that are being disrespectful, and idiotic. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Regardless of whether or not you like Slipknots music, you should in no way be making derogatory remarks like these about someone who just died. People need to stop being so heartless, and as far as I'm concerned, if you can't change yourself from being heartless, maybe we should make you heartless. Then people can come on here and make derogatory statements about you after your dead, regardless of the fact that you have family and friends that are grieving over the loss.

Uh, yes I would be saying the same stuff. Him being dead or alive doesn't change the fact he was a bad bassist, and Slipknot sucks.
