    Slipknot bassist Paul Gray found dead in Des Moines




    The band, with Gray (far right). won a Grammy in 2006 Paul Gray, the bassist with US metal band Slipknot, has been found dead in a hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, police say.
    The body of the 38-year-old musician was found by an employee at the hotel in a suburb of the city. Police said foul play was not suspected, but an autopsy will be carried out.
    The band, famous for their ghoulish masks, won a Grammy in 2006 for the song "Before I Forget".
    Most of the band members come from the Des Moines area.
    "This is a big blow, not only to the community of Des Moines but fans of metal at large, worldwide," said local radio station director Andy Hall, who says he knew Gray for a decade.
    "It's a devastating loss. Paul was a wonderful human being."
    The nine members of Slipknot wore masks in public and referred to other bandmates by numbers; Gray was number two.
    Their extreme stage antics extended to violence against each other and throwing bodily waste.
    Despite considerable commercial success, the band remained based in Des Moines.
    "The heavy metal world has lost an immense talent, and Slipknot's loyal following will ensure he and his music are remembered for years to come," said Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, which runs the Grammys.
