Slipknot star Corey Taylor has vowed to do everything he can to ensure his late pal Paul Gray’s new-born daughter learns all about her “fantastic” father.
The rocker passed away from an accidental morphine overdose in May (10), less than three months before his daughter, October Dedrick Gray, was welcomed into the world in August (10).
Taylor accepted Gray’s award for services to metal from music magazine Kerrang! earlier this year (10) and he has placed the trophy in October’s bedroom as a memento of the parent she never met. And the frontman has promised to teach Gray’s child everything about her dad as she grows up. He tells Kerrang!,
“I’m going to do everything I can to make sure October knows about her father. He was a fantastic man. He had his flaws, but who doesn’t? But he was one of the most loved people I’ve ever seen and a beautiful human being. I’m going to make sure his daughter knows that.”
So sad for the daughter.
