They should get the guy from Seventh Void - Hank Hell. Or someone like Steve DiGiorgio.

It'll probably be Shawn Economaki though.

That's fine for an album, but live? Maybe they've finally realised that four of the members don't contribute to their sound...

Yeah, you need Craig on those samples, and the two other guys on trashcans and hitting each other. Not like a second guitar is useful.

I would imagine Shawn or, whats the other perscussionists name? anyway, that dude will take over bass.. or they may have the two of them switching on it or something.. Lord knows, either way, I am there with bells on.. Going to Download for System, so will hafta catch Slipknot in Europe or possibly headlining in Ireland..

If they are not replacing Paul and just having another member do bass, then Craig, Sid or Shawn can do it.

This should be interesting; I wonder if they do a 5th album if one of the members would do bass in studio or if they will go after a replacement

EDIT: Maybe if I fucking read the article...duh..so it will stay a 8 member group then...

Well Sid's role is actually somewhat important, so I doubt he'll be doing it. My bet is on either Chris or Shawn playing bass.

I must say, I didn't expect them to come back already. I would've guessed at least 2012 or something.

Considering this is just for live shows, and not for an album, they'll probably do it internally. My estimated guess would be Chris.
