Video: Paul Gray's Tribute by His Slipknot 'Brothers'

The deceased star's bandmates posted a lengthy unseen footage of him talking about the brotherhood in the rock band.

Tragic bassist Paul Gray has returned from beyond the grave to feature in a haunting video tribute compiled by his bandmates. The heavy rocker was found dead in a suburban Des Moines, Iowa hotel room last month and his passing is currently being investigated by police.

The remaining members of Slipknot have celebrated Gray's legacy in a lengthy video montage, in which the late star is featured discussing his childhood, his love for his adopted hometown of Des Moines and his Slipknot "family" in a series of interview clips. In the footage, Gray says, "All these guys, I've known 'em forever... We've all played together in different bands, different shows... They're my family."

"Every person in this band... we couldn't have the band without (them). I mean, we've done shows without people, obviously, when people have gotten hurt, or Shawn (Crahan) had some family problems, and it's never the same. It does not feel like the band until everybody's there. Everybody makes up this whole thing."

"We've all got each other's back, and always have a shoulder for someone to put their head on. We're family. We do need each other."

The tribute video closes with a written message from Slipknot dedicated to their "brother", which reads, "This world will be a different place without him."
