RIP #2.
Paul Gray, 38, bassist and founding member of the Grammy Award-winning band Slipknot, was found dead May 24 at a hotel in his home town of Des Moines. The cause of death was under investigation.

Slipknot, a heavy-metal band known for an intense, thrashing style of play, macabre masks and visceral stage antics, won a Grammy in 2006 for best metal performance for the song "Before I Forget." The band has been known for extreme behavior during live performances, including urinating and vomiting onstage, according to biographies.
