For their upcoming shows in 2011, Slipknot has asked Donnie Steele to fill in for Paul Gray on bass. Donnie, as some may recall, was the original guitar player in Slipknot and had actually reconnected with Paul in recent years. Said the band on their decision, “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. Donnie was great friends with Paul and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate his memory than with someone who was there with us at the very beginning. The eight of us are looking forward to being onstage again and honoring Paul’s legacy with our families in Europe and Brazil this summer.”

Makes sense. I doubt it's anything more than a temporary replacement though.

I really don't get why they can't get one of their useless percussionists to play bass. I mean, does it really take two guys to smack beer kegs and garbage pales with big sticks?

let's just hope they stop making new CD's. That last one was horrible.

Cool.

Slipknot will be done after these dates, though. They may not officially "call it quits" right after, but they'll never make another album.

Whaaa? I thought AHIG was one of their better albums. It does have some crappy songs, but as do all Slipknot releases, IMO.

I cant stand how this band acts like they're breaking up every 2 years.

It's soft and acoustic. Stone Sour makes heavier music and they're considered Hard Rock

I was kidding. I don't care about Slipknot. I liked a few songs on Duality, but that's about it.

I think I can count the number of Slipknot songs I enjoy on both hands.

Thier debut album Wait & Bleed, and thier second album Left Behind have some good songs as well. ;)

On multiple fan sites they say Donnie didn't have one.

From back in the day:
"the sextet decided almost unanimously, with the exception of Donnie, that masks should be worn."

I'm a big Slipknot fan, but if their next release WERE to sound like their last album, I'd agree.

I'm interested to see if they allow him up front in Paul's spot or if they take the Korn route and hide him behind the speakers in the back

I tried liking the CD but it was just soooo bad. I think it has to do with the fact that I liked em in High School, and after a point I started listening to much better music after a certain point, and when AHIG came out I was so used to much better music that it just sucked ass.

Neither was Heretic, but both are as popular among Slipknot fans as any of their singles.

I love Before I Forget. And that acoustic song from that album that was famous.

I also like the Radio Disney version of Wait and Bleed.

The only album I ever had was Vol 3. I think they were moving towards Stone Sour, which I like considerably more than Slipknot (don't misconstrue that as meaning I'm a "fan" of either band.) I like Circle, Vermillion, Vermillion Pt. 2, and Before I Forget.

Only album I ever had was their debut self titled album.

Apart from that, I actually do like almost a dozen songs. :lol: They're a bit of a guilty pleasure.

ALL HOPE IS GONE
- Psychosocial
- All Hope Is Gone
IOWA
- The Heretic Anthem
SLIPKNOT
- (Sic)
- Wait and Bleed
SUBLIMINAL VERSES
- Vermillion, Pt. 2
