I write this with great sadness that such a great human being has left us. Paul Gray, was not a close friend of mine, but we were friends. In fact he is one of the first people I met in this crazy fucked up business, but I will say that he treated me like he knew me his whole life. One of the most genuine people you could ever ask to meet. I remember once back years ago, I hadn't seen him in a year or more, no phone calls, text and outta the blue he texted me...."Hey you wanna come hang out and go to the Grammy's with me, we got nominated and I wanted to hang with ya." That's the kinda guy I will remember Paul Gray as, just an all around, good person.To my brother Joey, and all my friends within the Slipknot Family, my thoughts are with you all.
