SLIPKNOT Releases PAUL GRAY Tribute Shirt

SLIPKNOT has teamed up with MusiCares for a special Paul Gray tribute t-shirt. All proceeds from the shirt sales will go directly to struggling musicians.

Pick up your exclusive tribute shirt and help a great charity in the process.

SLIPKNOT bassist Paul Gray was found dead in a hotel room in a Des Moines, Iowa suburb last May at the age of 38 from an overdose of morphine.

For SLIPKNOT's upcoming shows in 2011, the band has asked Donnie Steele to fill in for Gray on bass.

Donnie was the original guitar player in SLIPKNOT and had actually reconnected with Paul in recent years.

Commented the band: "Donnie was in the band at the very beginning, and rather than get an outsider, we thought it would be a fitting tribute to Paul to play with someone from within the family. Donnie was great friends with Paul and we can't think of a better way to celebrate his memory than with someone who was there with us at the very beginning. The eight of us are looking forward to being onstage again and honoring Paul's legacy with our families in Europe and Brazil this summer."
