Slipknot announces touring bassist

For Slipknot ‘s upcoming shows in 2011, the band has asked Donnie Steele to fill in for Paul Gray on bass.

Donnie was the original guitar player in Slipknot and had actually reconnected with Paul in recent years.

Commented the band: “ Donnie was in the band at the very beginning, and rather than get an outsider, we thought it would be a fitting tribute to Paul to play with someone from within the family
