Widow of Slipknot Bassist Doesn’t Want Tragic Death As Lasting Legacy

The widow of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray is urging fans to not focus too much on the musician’s death.

“I don’t want people to judge him for the mistake he made.  He wasn’t just a drug addict; that was a little part of his life that he just couldn’t overcome,” Brenna Gray told Revolver Magazine.

“He was a great guy, a great musician, a great husband, a great friend, a great brother and a great son.  I want people to know that.”

Brenna was 6 months pregnant with the couple’s daughter when Paul Gray was found dead in his Iowa hotel room back in May of last year.  Autopsy reports showed that the musician died from overdosing on prescription drugs.

October Dedrick Gray is four months old now, and Brenna is focusing on raising her daughter while working to keep Paul’s memory alive, in the hope it prevents others from making the same tragic mistake.

“I’ve been working with the MusiCares organisation.  If I can get my story out there, as hard as it is to tell – if one person can save their own life through my husband losing his – that’s what matters.”
