Former Slipknot bassist Paul Gray passed away in 2010 but would have been 45 this past Saturday had he survived his health problems. His birthday passing reminded me of this clip of Corey Taylor getting his Paul Gray tribute tattoo back in 2011. The piece was filmed for the show NY Ink and aired on TLC. Between the pain of the tattoo and remembering his old friend, Corey breaks down. I’m not gonna say that I got teary eyed watching the clip again, but I was coincidentally cutting onions. It’s also just strange to see Corey crying because he always seems like such a badass. If you’ve never seen it, take a look.
