Slipknot/ Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor recently spoke to NME about carrying on playing, with both his bands, in Slipknot bassist Paul Gray's memory.

Explains Taylor while on tour with Avenged Sevenfold,  "There are some moments that are more somber than others...For me dealing with loss...it's important to celebrate life and not revel in death...Jimmy ['The Rev', drummer with Avenged who passed away Dec 09] and Paul would not want us to do that."

The comments come aptly after Slipknot's recent announcement that they will headline Sonisphere Festival in 2011, an announcement that overtly stated this was for 'the fans' and 'for Paul'.
