Slipknot guitarist Jim Root has been discussing the future of the band after the tragic recent passing of bass player Paul Gray. Root was talking to the Sonisphere Festival website, where he claimed that the career of Slipknot is far from clear now they were without Gray in the lineup.
"There's going to be a big healing process that needs to happen before we even think about whether or not Slipknot will continue," he said. "And right now that's the furthest thing from our mind.” He added that it would be “probably two years at least" before any further activity from the group.
"Right now we are just grieving or trying to find time to grieve anyway for the fact that our bro's gone,” he said. “It's weird because some days I don't even think it's real, so that one's not going to make sense for a while." Clearly the band hasn’t had much time to think about the future yet, as Root added: “I’m not sure what we are going to do. We haven’t talked about anything we’re going to do.”
