Dear Musicians, Stop Dying. Thanks.

WTF, people? First we have Peter Steele, then Ronnie James Dio, and now Slipknot bassist, Paul Gray.

Dear Musicians,

Please stop dying.

That Girl With A Blog

No more half naked, racist men. No more “Holy Diver”. No more creepy dudes in leather masks. What is the world coming to!?

Dio’s death was originally hailed a hoax, but apparently not far from the truth. The former Black Sabbath member and solo artist’s Wikipedia page was initally changed to include his death around 10:00pm on Saturday, May 15th, but his wife Wendy cleared things up, stating that he was in pretty rough shape, but still kickin’. Dio didn’t die until Sunday morning. Well, dude was 67, (Weird, who ever thought he would make it this long. Isn’t today Bob Dylan’s birthday? What is he, now, 110?) AND had stomach cancer. At least that one was a little more expected that Paul Gray, dead at 38 in a hotel room. That’s how rock stars are supposed to go, I guess.

The cause of death for Paul Gray has not yet been determined. The guy just died yesterday, people. Sheesh. One of the three original band members left, he was the guy with the bass and the pig mask. Doesn’t that just make you want to take him home to mom? In 2003, Gray was arrested for drunk driving and possession following a car accident. It’s kind of surprising that he lasted this long. Well, they say that death comes in threes, so hopefully this will be the end of all this craziness for a while!

Paul Gray (April 8, 1972 – May 24, 2010)

He’s not even that creepy without the mask on! Seriously, go image search this guy…he’s like a pig/Hannibal Lecter…thing.

And here, for Tuesday, in memory of Ronnie James Dio, have a little “Holy Diver”.
