Band partner with MusiCares charity to commemorate bassist

Slipknot have joined forces with US charity MusiCares to make a T-shirt in tribute to their late bassist Paul Gray.

Gray died in May 2010. The new shirt features the ‘Number Two’ insignia he used to bear on the front, with a photograph of him on the back.

Slipknot recently announced that Donnie Steele, who played with the band when they formed in 1996, will play in Gray’s place for their summer shows.

Slipknot have one date scheduled in the UK for 2011 – a headline slot at July’s Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth Park. The band’s first show with Steele will be in Athens on June 17.
