Slipknot has put together a video tribute to Paul Gray. The video features lots of f-bombs, so be warned if you're surfing the net at work, etc.

The autopsy performed on the late Slipknot bassist, Paul Gray, failed to shed much light on the cause of death, other than foul play has been ruled out. Toxicology tests have been performed but will take weeks before results are finalized and reported. Gray was found dead in a hotel room in Iowa yesterday morning.

The remaining members of Slipknot held a press conference to speak about the loss of Gray. Video is below.



In addition, Total Guitar magazine has now posted a previously unpublished interview they did with Gray. Read it here.

There was no evidence of foul play, police said, but the investigation is ongoing.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday. Toxicology tests will be done.
