if anyone posts the word "gay" or anything involving hate in this thread, you are a homosexual and your address via IP will be sent to me and I will fly to your house to punch you in the mouth for being such an easy gaywad.

5/24/2010 9:07:31 PM

5/24/2010 9:20:36 PM
waiting on the care train.....seems to be running late

5/24/2010 9:23:23 PM
lambgoat late on news :o. but honestly even if he did do this to himself to what seems to be an obvious overdose, it is a sad loss

5/24/2010 9:25:42 PM
R.I.P. This sucks. I remember meeting him when I was 13, at that time, I thought he was the greatest. Loved the song "Do Nothing (bitchslap)" good shit. I guess this marks the end of the band as well?

5/24/2010 9:37:46 PM
He got (bitchslap)ped by God and now his body can do nothing.

5/24/2010 9:43:24 PM
do you guys seriously look up to him? you guys respect nu metal? seriously? what are you guys 15? ODed.. good riddance

5/24/2010 9:46:10 PM
I find it funny that all the people hating are really old and think their cool cuz they listen to real hxc music.

5/24/2010 9:46:20 PM

5/24/2010 9:52:11 PM
PS - I fcking hate how as soon as Bury Your Dead came out with that 1st nu-metal CD, it became not only alright but considered kind of cool for "hardcore kids" to like this kind of shit. fck all nu metal. All of it.

5/24/2010 9:54:48 PM
i dont see how you guys can feel sorry for a junkie dying he got what he deserved in my opinion

5/24/2010 9:57:29 PM
if they had never taken their masks off, they could've just done a quiet replacement and skipped all this negative press

5/24/2010 9:57:36 PM
gay, im glad hes dead

5/24/2010 10:05:30 PM
next on the list: the drummer from some metalcore band that no one cared about until he died. (in all seriousness though, RIP)

5/24/2010 10:09:27 PM
how the fck you gays know he ODed ? ya don't know shit ! when they first came out most of you guys were sucking their c-cks hard...

5/24/2010 10:11:15 PM
fck this guy and fck Slipknot.Icp fans will no doubt mourn.This band is a nu-metal band,why the fck is it on lambgoat?

5/24/2010 10:15:05 PM
Everyone loved Slipknot at one time or another... this is actually very sad.. :(

5/24/2010 10:17:26 PM

5/24/2010 10:47:01 PM
This guy was in a band or something?

5/24/2010 10:48:13 PM
no care whatsoever, everyone dies

5/24/2010 10:57:24 PM
I don't understand where the majority of Lambgoaters come from... what kind of environments were they raised in? What kind of tragedy occured in the past that made them such horrid human beings?

5/24/2010 10:57:32 PM
Slipknot's first record is better than 90% of any kind of hardcore or metal that ever existed. When anyone dies, it's a tragedy. fck ALL OF YOU

5/24/2010 11:03:15 PM
What band was he in?

5/24/2010 11:03:32 PM
praise the lord! one less maggot

5/24/2010 11:05:18 PM
Bummer. RIP #2

5/24/2010 11:06:34 PM
drug user dies of overdose, leaves child fatherless. during his life, he enjoyed putting on costumes with other men and dancing on stage for 15 year old girls and boys without balls. no care ever.

5/24/2010 11:17:09 PM
Sucks but yeah...def. did it to himself. Can't really feel sorry for someone who knows their life is going down the shitter but refused to stop. Especially for their own fcking son.

5/24/2010 11:18:50 PM
You gays kill me. 10 years ago most of you were jamming Korn, rocking JNCOs and checking the prp religiously.

5/24/2010 11:21:32 PM

5/24/2010 11:22:31 PM
Eh, hate Slipknot, but this actually sucks.

5/24/2010 11:23:29 PM

5/24/2010 11:29:00 PM
Yea this is pretty sad. I use to love slipknot with a passion. To this day I still know every word to My Plague song is amazing. R.I.P

5/24/2010 11:32:27 PM

5/24/2010 11:32:32 PM
Not a fan of slipknot, but RIP, hope the best for his friends/fam n fans

5/24/2010 11:55:19 PM
I hope they get the bassist from mudvayne.

5/25/2010 12:15:28 AM
Whoa, just think about for a minute... If the bassist of Slipknot can die, than that means, we can too. That's some heavy shit right there.

5/25/2010 12:15:50 AM
some kids with an unhealthy attachment to music type satirical commentary about a person who died. Get over yourself.

5/25/2010 12:25:35 AM
37 is way too young to die

5/25/2010 12:49:17 AM
Hot Topic will be flying oversized black pants with 30 straps on them, at half mast.......

5/25/2010 12:50:19 AM
Slipknot - Self-Titled is heavier than anything anybody who talked shit on here listens to by far.

5/25/2010 12:51:05 AM

Just for the record, Broken Glass by Crowbar is the heaviest record ever. You fartknocker.

5/25/2010 1:22:07 AM
Band was once good, and with rare exceptions, most of the people that post here own one of their albums or sold/traded it in a half-hearted attempted to shed their nu-ness. Shitty news, even though their last two albums blowed.

5/25/2010 1:37:48 AM
Isn't he from Iowa? Why was he in a hotel instead of at mom and pap's? Gotta bang that heroin and end up morphing into a corpse during the night. Dead as fck. R.I.P

I met Paul in Atlanta some years back and he was a super great guy. Such a shame.

5/25/2010 8:52:21 AM
I think it will be harder to find someone to wear a jumpsuit and mask in 100 degree weather than a new bass player. They could've just announced this and nobody would have ever known.

if it was one of the three drummers, I think it wouldn't have been too tragic..but the bassist?? shit, only one of them.

By: ShaolinLambKiller on 5/24/2010 9:59:33 PM Paul's wife has a quirky, art school attractiveness. I like boys, though. Give me some John Mayer any day. Though I'd gag him with my big rod.

5/26/2010 6:48:46 AM
"I find it funny that all the people hating are really old and think their cool cuz they listen to real hxc music.". Yeah, fcking ADTR is real hxc to them, as well as Attack Attack. Some guys here are just plain lucky it's not a face to face talk.

SlipKnot's 1st album was heavy as fck, when I seen them at Ozzfest when they were touring for the release of what ever the fck it is called, The good SK album. But he was one of the worst bassist, I thought this dude died in a lamborgini accident
