Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has revealed an untold story about late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray.
Here’s the story:
“He could have been the world’s worst driver. None of us ever wanted to ride with him. He’d get to f*c*ing around with his stereo or trying to light his smoke, he’d stop paying attention to the road, and suddenly you’re either going 90 miles per hour or swerving into the next lane… or both.
The man had more tickets and had had his license suspended more than anyone else I’ve ever known.
However, Paul being Paul, he was always able to get his license back. I’ve met so many policemen who let Paul off with a warning that I can’t believe he ever got a ticket to begin with – another testament to just how wonderful he was.
All of these things and more are what I miss the most about my friend. His compassion was ridiculous. His personality was warm and incredible. His intelligence was extensive, and the way he talked or argued about things he believed in was beautiful to behold.
Yes, his demons were a great many and exposed for the world to see. He was a wonderful, flawed, imperfectly perfect brother. He could be your best friend and your worst enemy all at once. But he was an original. He was my original.”
