Slipknot Finds A Replacement On Bass For Summer Tour

It’s been almost one year since the tragic loss of Paul Gray, former bass player for Slipknot. Although it seems in recent interviews that Corey and the rest of the band aren’t really ready to move on, the show must go on.

They’ve decided instead of searching and auditioning for a bassist to fill in for their summer tour, they’re keeping it in the family (so to speak) and bringing back an old friend.

Corey and the rest of the band have decided to call on the talents of Donnie Steele, who was for a short time one of the original guitarist and a co-founder for the band in 1995. He had originally quit the band because of this religious beliefs, but played on their first demo album, Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.

In a statement released by the band the members said, “Donnie was in the band at the very beginning, and rather than get an outsider, we thought it would be a fitting tribute to Paul to play with someone from within the family. Donnie was great friends with Paul and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate his memory than with someone who was there with us at the very beginning. The eight of us are looking forward to being onstage again and honoring Paul’s legacy with our families in Europe and Brazil this summer.”

The band has a series of shows this coming summer, and maybe after that they will be heading into the studio to record some new music.
