Paul Gray of Slipknot

Slipknot Have An Unreleased Tribute Song To Paul Gray Called “Without The Gray”


According to Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, the band recorded a tribute track for their late bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010 following an accidental overdose of morphine and fentanyl. The song was apparently recorded a number of years back.

Speaking with 93X recently, Crahan said of that as-yet unreleased track:

“There are so many songs that have never been released because they get taken up to a point, and they’re doing good, but then they just sort of fall short because maybe that right brush just couldn’t bring that color yet. So we hold it back. There’s tons of music.”

We have a song that we wrote for Paul Gray called ‘Without The Gray,’ and it’s probably my fault, but I’ve held it for a long time. I don’t know why. It was too close in the beginning, and it seemed like it needed to be for us more than for everyone else. And now I don’t care, I want it to be for everyone else instead of us.”

Numerous members of Slipknot have been in the studio working on the band’s forthcoming new album lately with Crahan hoping to have the recording process wrapped by the end of July.
