Quantcast

October 31, 2009. It was on that night that Slipknot would bring the touring cycle for All Hope is Gone to a close by performing to a sold-out crowd at the Pearl Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort as part of FANGORIA's Trinity of Terrors. No one knew it at the time, but that Halloween night concert would be the final time that the band would perform with bassist Paul Gray, who died in the spring of 2010. I was at that show - a memorable highlight of my short tenure working for FANGORIA magazine, serving as the Director of New Media for the event and co-hosting live webcasts throughout the weekend, including installments with Slipknot's Sid Wilson and Corey Taylor. Oddly enough, early this morning, Facebook memories surfaced a few images from that event that led me to dig into the archives to take a look at some never-before-seen photos and video that I was tempted to share... pausing and considering that sharing them next year on the 10th anniversary would be more appropriate. And then something unexpected happened: Slipknot released a surprise new single and music video... "All Out Life."
