Of all of the recent deaths in the metal/rock scene, I think this one hit me the hardest. Once you look past the masks and the whole exterior, Slipknot wrote some really well crafted and surprisingly intelligent songs and in my opinion don't get the credit they deserve.
It'll be interesting to see if they carry on after this, considering Paul was a founding member and wrote a lot of their songs. RIP.
Nothing like the collapse of the entire U.S. economy to bring about the inspiration for a themed-show dedicated to the ever-elusive dollar. And as I post this, the Asian markets are plummeting as well. Amazing.
