Corey Taylor muistelee: ”Vinnie Paul sanoi viisaimmat sanat Paul Grayn kuollessa”

Corey Taylor kertoi ystävänsä ja Slipknot-bänditoverinsa Paul Grayn kuoleman jälkeen vuonna 2010, että Pantera/Hellyeah-rumpali Vinnie Paulin lohduttavat ja viisaat sanat olivat hänelle erityisen merkityksellisiä tuolloin. Corey Taylor sai tuolloin monia osanottoja Paul Grayn tragediaan liittyen ja kertoi Revolver Magazinen haastattelussa Vinnie Paulista näin:

”The thing that they let me know is that it never really goes away: There’s always a hole, basically. It may get better, but it never really goes away. The best advice I got was from Vinnie. And he basically told me — and this is a guy who not only lost his bandmate, but he lost his brother, his true brother — he let me know, he’s like, ”Man, the thing you’ve gotta remember is you’re living for two. You’re living for two now ’cause his spirit is never gone.” He’s like, ”So everything you do, every experience, every victory, you know, you’re winning for two, you’re living for two, you’re laughing for two. That’s forever.” And that … it made it a little easier for me. It let me enjoy things. It let me love again, basically, let’s put it that way. And I keep Paul with me every day, you know. And I can’t tell you how much I appreciate Vinnie sharing that with me ’cause, I mean, I knew Vinnie and Dime, both, you know. They were at our first show in Dallas. We got to hang out with them — they were the first dudes that really went out of their way to embrace Slipknot, as far as, like, other bands go. And it was great, it felt really good to know that Vinnie was sharing something with me like that.”
