Video of Sonisphere Tribute To Slipknot's Paul Gray

(RockAAA) Rock and metal fans fell into respectful silence at Sonisphere this weekend as festival organisers and Slipknot honored late bassist Paul Gray ahead of the band's first UK appearance since his death.

Thousands gathered at the Saturn stage at the appointed time and the entire festival site fell silent. Gray's bass, red jump suit and mask took centre stage and Corey Taylor and Shawn Crahan stood to the side together throughout.

The PA boomed out Slipknot's 'Vermilion Part 2' ahead of the remembrance. In a previous interview Corey Taylor explained the poignant idea behind the song, "The differences (between the two tracks) are subtle 'Vermilion, Pt. 1′ is about the enrapturing, the buildup, the anticipation and the neurosis," says Taylor. "'Part 2′ is the aftermath, the pieces that have to be picked up later, and maybe the guilt of having lived through it." Watch video here
