SLIPKNOT Drummer Jay Weinberg Leaves Touching Note At Paul Gray's Grave

Jay Weinberg pays his respects.


Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg recently stopped by the grave of late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray to pay his respects in the form of a nice note written on a drum stick. One Redditor found and transcribed the note:

"Dear Paul – I hope you're proud of the music we've created. Your presence guides this band in spirt + and sound. I think you'll dig the new record. At least I hope you do. All the respect and love in the world. We are not your kind.

Long live the Knot -Jay"

What a fitting and nice way to pay respects at a grave, from a drummer to a bassist. For those unaware, Paul Gray was the founding bassist of Slipknot in 1995. Gray passed away in 2010, and Weinberg joined in place of ex-drummer Joey Jordison in 2014. Unfortunately Weinberg and Gray never got to perform together, but it's still awesome to see the love from Weinberg.

Correction: This post initially stated the note was left on Vinnie Paul's grave. We deeply regret the mistake.
