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.
I didn't think I would ever get to hear them together again! http://members.aol.com/paulspage/news.htm Doesn't sound like they'll do anything more than this, but I never thought we'd get this so anything's possible now. Thank you god!
