While watching the Grammy's last Sunday night did you notice certain people missing from the In Memoriam video presentation? 

Apparently many people did.  Grammy awards organizer Neil Portnow has commented on the absence of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray and Type O Negative singer Peter Steele from the ceremony’s In Memoriam video presentation. He explains: “It’s a sad job, but we keep a list of when we lose people in the industry. This past year we had over 300 people pass, so we had to make a selection. You can’t get everybody in there and we try to have a broad representation of genres and generations. We’re never happy with how that turns out. But we have the full list in our programme book every year.”

Two influentual rock artists.  We will never forget.
