This morning it was brought to our attention that the following rumour was making it’s way around the Internet… and naturally enough, we got a lot of emails from concerned fans. Slipknot’s #2 Paul Gray is in stable but guarded condition at the St. Mary’s Hospital in St. Paul, MN after he was brutally attacked by a distraught fan and was stabbed 6 times in the chest area coming within inches from the rockstars heart and major organs. Police have arrested a 16 yr. old male that escaped from a local medical ward indicating he was sent messages through the former lyrics of Slipknot’s music. Also, injured were 3 security staff and a female patron with minor stab wounds during the mayhem on the evening of Slipknot side project F.O.R. Fear not, for the rumour is false… Paul is in fact, safe and sound at home in Des Moines, Iowa. He sends his thanks to all the fans for their concern and wishes all the maggots a (sic), fucking merry holiday!
