38-year-old Paul Gray, the bassist for metal band Slipknot, was found dead at an Iowa hotel on Monday. The Urbandale Police department report that a hotel employee discovered the body early morning. No foul play has been found just yet but an autopsy is scheduled today.

Slipknot members hardly ever stepped out without their trademark masks, and Grey often went by the names “#2″ and “The Pig.” He was arrested once  in 2003 on suspicion of cocaine and marijuana. The Grammy winning band has a hugely following, and he will be sorely missed by family, friends and fans.

So sad!
