DES MOINES, Iowa -- Paul Gray, the bassist for Grammy-winning metal band Slipknot, was found dead Monday in an Iowa hotel room but there was no indication of foul play, police said.
A hotel employee found Gray, 38, dead in a room at the TownePlace Suites in Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines, police said in a statement. An autopsy was planned for Tuesday.
“Paul Gray was an awesome person on and off stage. He will be missed by many including myself,” Jacoby Shaddix, lead singer of metal band Papa Roach, said in a statement late Monday. “His spirit will live on through the killer music he wrote.”
