Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has uploaded a piano tribute to Instagram to honour his late bandmate, Paul Gray, on what would have been his 46th birthday yesterday (US time).

"Happy Birthday. #2," Taylor wrote - the number referring to the digit assigned to Gray in Slipknot as one of the OG members of the line up.

Gray passed away on April 8, 2010 due to a morphine overdose.

Earlier this year, Slipknot announced they are not only working on a new album, but also a tour for 2019. Hopefully that includes a visit back to NZ.
