Vocalist pays tribute to late friend in ink: 'I miss him so much' - video

Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor has commemorated the band’s late bassist Paul Gray with a new tattoo.

Blabbermouth is reporting that Taylor recently paid a visit to friend Ami James, star of tattoo reality show Miami Ink, for the new artwork. The session was filmed for a new episode of the show in James‘s new shop in New York, and will air this week, Thursday June 9, on US television.

A photo and video preview of Taylor‘s appearance on the show can be viewed here. “I am getting a tribute piece to my bass player,” says the singer tearfully in the clip. “I miss him so much.”

NME.COM recently conducted an interview with Corey Taylor about Gray which you can view below. Gray died from a morphine overdose in Des Moines, Iowa in 2010.

Slipknot will play the UK’s Sonisphere Festival in July.
