DesMoinesRegister.com is reporting that SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor reported the theft of $36,600 worth of musical equipment on Sunday afternoon, according to a West Des Moines police report. Two bass guitars once owned by deceased Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, who died of an overdose in 2010, were included in the list of stolen items on the report.
Taylor told police that a friend stole musical equipment when Taylor and his wife were in Europe on a month-long tour, from which they returned late Saturday. Taylor joined the Des Moines-based metal band in 1997.
A friend told Taylor’s wife that she believed the suspect had been stealing musical equipment from the couple’s West Des Moines home and storage units, according to the report. Another friend became suspicious when he heard the suspect asking to buy equipment back from a local guitar store, the report said.
