Slipknot:

Paul Gray Was

'The Best of Us'

5/25/2010 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Members of the band Slipknot just held an emotional news conference about the death of the band's bassist Paul Gray -- calling him "the essence of the band."


Without their trademark masks, the entire band -- along with Paul's wife -- assembled in Iowa to remember Paul as a "really great friend and person."

Paul's death is currently being investigated by officials. So far, cops don't believe there was any foul play involved.

I had not heard of Slipknot before, but my 16 year old daughter loves them and I took her to a concert and stood in the mosh pit. Not the place I wanted to be but listened to the music...not neccesarily (sic) my cup of tea but they are creative people, truly talented, love what they did, and have many loyal fans. Who am I to judge any of them?

I don't have a heaven or hell to put this man in and I'm not going to act like I do. With that being said, my heart breaks for Paul Gray's family and his band mates because they obviously love him.

Whatever people say, positive or negative, he will be missed by millions and no one can replace him.
