Slipknot: ‘We can’t fathom what to do after Paul Gray’s death’ – video

Corey Taylor speaks from Sonisphere festival site

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor has said that the band the band cannot “fathom” what to do following the death of bassist Paul Gray in May.

Speaking in a video interview with NME at the Sonisphere festival, which you can watch on the right, the singer said that it was still too early after the event to decide how they should carry on.

“As far as the future, it’s really soon to tell, none of us can even fathom what to do yet,” he said. “As soon as we do the world will be the first to know. It’s not that we don’t want to… how do you do what makes sense when such a big piece of that puzzle is gone?”

Taylor was playing a solo slot at the Knebworth event. He added: “To me, I’m kind of fortunate that I have [other band] Stone Sour to concentrate on. Me and my wife have been taking care of his [Gary”s] family right now. We’ll have to wait and see.”
