I interviewed him when I was a lowly college newspaper editor doing freelance journalism to get experience during the summer...there were the same naysayers then, jealous F_CKS, who would sh_T on me for wanting to write and apparently some of them are jealous that this kind person has died, of natural causes or not, AT Least he DID something while dealing with his demons, YOU unnamed (as which you are in life) are pathetic, complete losers. I was lucky enough to meet him once at this guy at Clam Bake backstage for an interview and he was genuine, and he helped me and probably a lot of others...what have you done...unnamed...

I can't remember if I cried, when I read about his widowed bride, but something touched me deep inside, the day the music died...

You were an editor for a newspaper? I'm guessing that editing didn't work out for you. That's just based on your obvious grasp of how to write one looooong run-on paragraph.

""Paul Gray was an awesome person on and off stage. The band has been known for extreme behavior during live performances, including urinating and vomiting on stage."

I would hate to clean his stage after a show.

Hey Dumbass, clearly I was drunk when I wrote that response, like anyone who is wasting their time replying to postings, but I stand behind what I said/meant to say...Paul Gray was a quality person in my book. Its sad. Now if you died, your dog would probably make an excuse to skip the funeral.
