The involuntary manslaughter trial of deceased Slipknot bassist Paul Gray’s doctor, Daniel Baldi, has commenced, and Gray’s widow, Brenna has now testified.

According to the Des Moines Register, Brenna Gray took the stand to assert that Baldi continued to prescribe Xanax - an anti-anxiety medication - to Paul, despite the fact that “it was his drug of choice, that he’d struggled with it.” She also testified that she told Baldi she’d found hypodermic needles in their home, and that she took photos of Paul passed out and showed them to Baldi in an effort to convince him of the seriousness of Gray’s addiction. During cross-examination, Baldi’s defense attorney, Guy Cook, asserted “that medical records included no reference to her sharing pictures of her passed-out husband with Baldi or of her telling the doctor about finding needles,” and “that among the numerous pill bottles police found in the hotel room, only one had contained drugs prescribed by Baldi… those pills were Suboxone, a medication for people trying to break drug addiction.”

That Brenna Gray doesn’t have any kind words for Dr. Baldi isn’t surprising… but that she also holds the other members of Slipknot accountable for Paul’s death is. From the Register:

“She said she called her husband’s bandmates, but none offered to help. Slipknot bandmates Corey Taylor and Shawn Crahan are listed as potential witnesses in the trial. ‘One was playing golf two minutes away from our house but couldn’t come,’ she testified. ‘Nobody else cared, nobody was involved. They told me it was my problem.’ Two days later, he was found dead in his hotel room.”

Is it possible that Paul Gray’s bandmates were really so callous? It does seem odd to me that Brenna would appear with the band at a press conference just days after Paul’s death if she really thought they hadn’t done everything they could to help… but I know people’s heads aren’t always on straight during the grieving process, too. Ultimately, the only people who may ever know the truth are Brenna and the eight surviving members of Slipknot.

You can watch video footage of Brenna Gray’s testimony below, and read the Des Moisnes Register’s full report here.

SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says fans "will lose their minds" when they hear the band's long-awaited new studio album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Roadrunner Records.

Speaking to Kristyn Clark of Pop Culture Madness on the red carpet of last week's "Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor" event in Columbus, Ohio, Corey said about his plans for the rest of 2014: "The rest of the summer is just finishing up a certain album . And that's about it, really. I've got a handful of shows that I'm doing with STONE SOUR in July, and then everything is SLIPKNOT."

Pressed about the direction of the new SLIPKNOT material, Taylor said: "I will say that, at the moment, right now, it feels like a great mesh of  'Iowa' and  'Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)'. You've got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of 'Vol. 3' and then you've got the absolute brutality of 'Iowa'. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it."

Taylor said in an interview with Front Row Live Entertainment on May 12 that the band's first album in six years is "coming along," adding, "I actually left the studio to come right down here. So it's a matter of time, trust me. It's gonna be rad . . . Everything is going exactly how it needs to go. So it's gonna be really awesome."

Even though SLIPKNOT's last album, "All Hope Is Gone", came out in 2008, Taylor said, "The good thing is we've always been writing, so there's a ton of stuff that we're pretty stoked on. It's exactly what you want it to be."

SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he has high hopes for the band's next album. "That record is going to be, I predict, one of the most serious things that we will have ever comprehended that we've ever done in our life," he said. "And we pretty much say that on every record, but I really feel that when the time comes, what will be on hand is going to be something almost unimaginable."

The new SLIPKNOT album will be the band's first since the 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray and the late 2013 dismissal of drummer Joey Jordison.

The band is rumored to have recruited drummer Jay Weinberg to play on the new album. Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg, longtime BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND drummer.

Slipknot percussionist Shawn M. Crahan (a.k.a. Clown) revealed that the band’s next album will contain songwriting contributions by the band’s deceased bassist Paul Gray. He explains:  

“There are songs that he’s written that will be a part of the next record. We’re all going to have to think like him, and he’ll be there. He’ll be there; there’s no way that Paul Gray will not be a part of anything that we do for the rest of our career.”

Slipknot’s last studio album All Hope Is Gone was released back in August 2008, nearly two years before Paul Gray died. Although the band has not yet announced an official replacement for PaulDonnie Steele, who was the guitarist for Slipknot from 1995-1996, had been filling in for him on their last tour.
