The widow of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray says she wants people to remember him as "more than just a drug addict."

Model Brenna Gray was six months pregnant with the couple's daughter when the tragic musician was found dead in an Iowa hotel room in May. He was 38. Police later confirmed he'd taken an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

But Brenna doesn't want people to focus on what she says was the one negative aspect of her husband's character – and she's determined to make sure his death saves other people's lives.

"He was a great guy, a great musician, a great husband, a great friend, a great brother and a great son. I want people to know that."

“I’ve been working with the MusiCares organisation. If I can get my story out there, as hard as it is to tell – if one person can save their own life through my husband losing his – that’s what matters.”
