  DOCTOR ALLEGEDLY IMPLICATED IN DEATH OF SLIPKNOT BASSIST PAUL GRAY IS ACQUITTED OF ALL CHARGES
6 May 2014





Physician Daniel Baldi has been found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, after facing seven accusations that he over-prescribed narcotics. One of his patients and alleged victims was Slipknot bassist Paul Gray who died in 2010.

The jury deliberated for two days in Des Moines, Iowa, before returning the not guilty verdicts. Baldi still faces further charges of malpractice.

Paul Gray's widow, Brenna, took the stand in April and claimed that Baldi continued to prescribe Xanax to her husband while knowing that Gray had a history of abusing it. She also claimed that Gray's bandmates did not offer help around the time of his death.

No members of Slipknot were called to give evidence during the trial.

The band released an official statement at the time that Baldi was charged, stating that "this man will pay for what he has done". The details can be read here .

At the time of writing no further official statement has been made.







NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
