Founding Slipknot bassist Paul Gray passed away back in 2010 after a long struggle with drug addiction. With his daughter now turning seven years old, his friends and family are putting some of his personal collection up for auction to help raise money for her future. Backstage Auctions will be hosting the sale from April 1st – 9th, and if you’re a die hard Slipknot fan, this collection is for you. Here’s what will be offered: “The auction will feature Paul’s personal tour used bass guitars, amps, cabinets, gear, stage worn apparel, set lists, tour itineraries, signed items, record awards, personal passes and a whole lot more. Among the many highlights is a selection of over a dozen tour, studio and album recording used bass guitars, as well as several early day signature Slipknot jumpsuits.”
Backstage Auctions founder Jacques van Gool added: “It’s truly a privilege to be hosting this event especially knowing that it will benefit Paul’s daughter October. 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. 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.”
