Paul Gray, more commonly known as Slipknot’s bassist, died a couple of weeks ago. Just recently, the autopsy reports were released to the public revealing that he had died of an overdose. An overdose of morphine.
Just so you know, that doesn’t make him a bad person, not at all. We all have things we wish to escape from in our lives. He just had the means to “temporarily” escape from his own problems. In fact, we all have our ways. We have our special spots to go to, our drug-of-choice, our consoling lover, our respectful blade, etc.
His escape was morphine. That’s all there is to it.
