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.
The latest volume of Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series was officially announced today, and it looks to me like the most exciting installment since the first one. Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs will be released October 7.
