Jim Root defends Slipknot from Paul Gray's widow’s claims


Paul Gray's wife Brenna Gray said in court in April that the members of Slipknot have not wanted to help Paul before he died. (click here to read the news). Slipknot guitarist Jim Root said in a recent interview:


"Paul was our brother; Paul was very close to us. We tried putting him into treatment numerous times; we took him off of tours and we had interventions with him. At the end of the day, Paul was sick. What can you do? If you have a sickness, you've got to fix that sickness but you can't keep putting somebody into treatment over and over and over again. What are you supposed to do? Babysit someone and live with them?"

Asked to state whether he and the other members of Slipknot cared about Gray's health, Root said: "Absolutely. He’s our friend. He’s our brother. He’s always going to be part of our lives."

"Brenna's always got brothers she can count on, and October will always have eight uncles that give a shit."
