Late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray's belongings set for auction
Next month items from the "personal and private collection" of late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray will be auctioned via the "Paul Gray All Access Legacy Auction." The auction will feature tour-used bass guitars, amps, cabinets, gear, stage worn apparel, set lists, tour itineraries, signed items, and record awards, among other items. "It's truly a privilege to be hosting this event especially knowing that it will benefit Paul's daughter October," says Backstage Auctions founder Jacques van Gool. "Each of the guitars and jumpsuits has their own story to tell and represent a significant element of Paul Gray's touring and recording history," he adds. "I have personally worked with Brenna Gray over the past 18 months and her final selection of items from Paul's collection is amazing and truly honors Paul's legacy. She has hand-picked items that will appeal to Paul Gray and Slipknot collectors all around the world." The auction will commence on April 1 and run through April 9. You can find more information on the auction here. Paul Gray passed away in 2010 at the age of 38. Autopsy results ultimately found that Gray died of a morphine overdose, though heart disease may have been a contributing factor.
