SLIPKNOT With Touching Tribute to Fallen Bandmates

Share This:

While time may help ease the pain of the loss of those closest to your heart, nothing can ever replace that part of you that is now somehow constantly lost and broken.

Slipknot have had to endure the premature passing of two of their own, with bass player Paul Gray suffering a fatal overdose just over ten years ago and the more recent passing of original drummer Joey Jordison.

The band have always been open in their love and respect for their former members, but at their recent performance on the Knotfest roadshow they surprised fans by exiting the stage after Surfacing – a song written by both Jordison and Gray alongside frontman Corey Taylor – amid fireworks and adulation with a tribute to the deceased members playing lovingly on the big screen behind them.

Watch fan captured footage of that special moment below.
