    According to DesMoinesRegister.com, Paul died of an accidental overdose of morphine and fentanyl, a medical examiner has ruled.

    I don't listen to much Slipknot myself, but isn't their drummer really highly acclaimed?

    Also, this is definitely not the end of Slipknot. I don't know about that "can't go on" bullshit. The band seriously had nine members at one point, three of which served no real purpose. I'm looking at their Wikipedia page right now and I see five former members. No way they're going to break up over the death of their bassist. It usually takes the death/leaving of the vocalist, and half the time not even that stops the band.

    Llamas, really? Dude dies and you just have to spew venom? Slipknot was not a favorite of mine by any means but they are friends of friends, and they don't deserve what you had to say. Paul OD'd. It's a demon he's been fighting for a long time. That's great you don't have any sympathy, but it'd be greater if you kept that to yourself.

    You girls have seriously no more problems that bitchin' at each other? I mean, sure, it's bad, and taking drugs doesn't make a person less worth. And saying that his death doesn't affect her (Llamas) is a bit less sensitive. But have you heard this one: Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. So listen to this one instead:

    Also: joke about "which bassist?" since Slipknot has like 80 members because they can't actually play their instruments well enough to do it one guy per instrument. Hacks.

    All signs point to drugs. I fail to feel bad/have pity.
    I second the previously stated.

    Just for your information, those 5 ex-members are all from the first era of Slipknot, their indie times when they played totally different style of music and released an underground album Mate Feed Kill Repeat. Their line-up has been stable since 1998.
