A Very special tribue to paul gray live!

#paulgray #slipknot #tribute #livestream Its been 9 years since the great Mr Paul Gray also known as #2 for the legendary Des Moines Iowan band known as SLIPKNOT tragically passed away from a fatal drug overdose on may 24th 2010. On this very special may 24th I offer my condolences and heartfelt empathy to Scarlett Gray and her daughter as well as my deepest Condolences for The Crahan family also during this difficult time with the sudden death of their youngest daughter Gabrielle Crahan, She was just 22 years of age. Join me and hang out, talk Slipknot and headbang your asses of and scream lyrics to your favorite slipknot songs. This will be a livestream you wont want to miss! Cheers and love to you all and thank you for your support! I don’t usually let people see me cry,” Slipknot percussionist Shawn Crahan says matter-of-factly. “It’s too hard. But when I heard what Corey Taylor sang on the song ‘XIX,’ I cried and cried and cried. It hurt so bad.” “XIX” is the funereal dirge that kicks off .5: The Gray Chapter, the menacing metal screamers’ fifth studio album and first since the 2010 death of their friend and bandmate Paul Gray. Crahan, best known for wearing a bloody clown mask and convulsing his body during the band’s frenetic concerts, had constructed the track as a three-minute eulogy for Gray, the group’s founding bassist who died of an accidental overdose of morphine and the painkiller fentanyl. Crahan spoke the song’s opening words, “This song is not for the living; this song is for the dead.” But it’s the lyrics that frontman Taylor wrote that drove him to tears: “Walk with me, just like we should have done right from the start…. Walk with me, don’t let this fucking world tear you apart.” For the first time in the four years since their bandmate died, the musicians – whose frightening façades belie deeply emotional men nearly crippled by the loss of their friend – were finally working together on new music. Ultimately, they made a record that paid tribute to Gray while maintaining the seething, heavy hostility their fans love – often at the same time. Where their previous albums found them pointing their middle fingers at the world, .5: The Gray Chapter is their most focused album yet. Also, because of everything they’ve been though, it’s often their heaviest – both musically and emotionally. “It was always in my head that this was going to be the story of the last four years,” says Taylor, 40, whose stentorian, Midwestern accent suggests bold confidence even when he’s letting down his guard. “We knew it was going to be heavy. We knew we would be asking ourselves if we were prepared to be that honest. But we allowed ourselves to get to that point.” “Finally, after four years, we looked at each other and said, ‘Hey, we’re gonna cry. We’re gonna hurt. We’re gonna be angry,'” Crahan, 45, says. “We got it out, and it felt good.” Prior to .5: The Gray Chapter, the emotion Slipknot did best was pure vitriolic anger. When the group put out its first widely distributed album, Slipknot, in 1999, the band members came off like enfants terribles, hurling their bodies across MTV at the peak of nü-metal’s final crest, rapping and growling about hate and frustration on their breakthrough single “Wait and Bleed.” Although the nine-person group – whose members included Taylor, Crahan, Gray, guitarists Mick Thomson and Jim Root, percussionist Chris Fehn, sampler Craig Jones, DJ Sid Wilson and drummer Joey Jordison – came from Des Moines, their jumpsuits, homemade Halloween masks and songs like “People = Shit” rivaled any boogeyman Stephen King could concoct. according to a court statement she made earlier this year. She confronted him on it and canceled his upcoming tour with the metal covers group Hail. But then his death happened quickly. “He was sick and none of us knew about it,” Brenna told Revolver magazine a few months after his death. “I think that was the most upsetting thing to me was that I didn’t know. ‘Cause I always knew, and I always brought him back when things were starting to take a turn. But this time I just couldn’t do it…. What was going on in his life? I have no idea, no clue.” Preorder WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND HERE- https://slipknot1.com/ Please support the stream https://streamlabs.com/theunderground...
