SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor played an acoustic version of the SLIPKNOT song "Snuff" as a tribute to late SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray during Taylor's solo concert this past Saturday (July 17) at Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Watch fan-filmed video footage of the dedication and the actual performance below.The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas unveiled a special new Corey Taylor case on July 15. The case features masks and uniforms that Corey has worn on stage with SLIPKNOT as well as some of his plaques, photographs and some other special memorabilia. To celebrate this special honor, Corey performed two solo shows at the Hard Rock. The first was Poolside on July 16 with his JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND. The second was the above-mentioned solo acoustic show at Wasted Space in the Hard Rock. Taylor told Billboard.com that it's "too soon" to talk about SLIPKNOT's future following the May 2010 death of Paul Gray at the age of 38. SLIPKNOT has been on a break since late last year and the band members did not give any hint of their future plans at a brief press conference they did the week of Gray's death. Taylor himself is taking part in promotional efforts for "Audio Secrecy", the third album from his other band STONE SOUR, which is due out September 7. Other than his "too soon" comment, he declined to speak about Gray.
