    RIP :(

    2010 isn't shaping up to be any better than 2009 in terms of dead celebrities.

    First Dio and now this...

    I think someone is killing off the world's musicians.

    It's Lady Gaga and her other untalented buddy Justin Bieber.

    I personally despise the message Slipknot sends, so good riddance, sorry. :rolleyes:

    I don't wish death on anyone, but the satanic demeanor that they write with, no no.

    Well Dio died of stomach cancer, this may not be something as "natural". Sucks though, I'd hate to be left with the Justin Biebers of the world.

    I don't even remotely like SlipKnot or the genre they represent but this comment is just ridiculously close minded and short sighted.

    What did Paul Gray or Slipknot ever do to you to deserve such a disrespectful response?

    Lovely. Why don't you go use the web for something useful, like hiring someone to carry your luggage? :rolleyes:

    38 is too young to go :(

    Wow. Really? A) You must not listen to much of Slipknot's music. While its not exactly Amy Grant, its not Satanic either. B) Saying "good riddance" when someone dies is completely disrespectful. Paul Gray was a great talent, whether you like their music or not. Your comment was rude.

    R.I.P. Paul. You will be missed.

    Slipknot are great entertainment, and although I'm not into modern metal groups, you have to recognise and appreciate their influence. It's another celeb death, young one at that, and it's very sad. The guy saying good riddance needs to wind his neck in.

    I despise Slipknot's music, but I am able to appreciate the fact that they were good musicians and that it's tragic when someone dies too early.

    It's too bad that creative people seem to be so prone to depressions and the like.

    RIP. I listened to them throughout high school, and that was about it, but I occasionally went back to "Before I Forget."
