The lead singer of Slipknot says music equipment worth $36,000 (£24,000) has been stolen from his home.

The Des Moines Register says that Corey Taylor told police two guitars that had belonged to Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, who died in May 2010, were among the items stolen.

Taylor, 39, told police that he suspected a friend stole the gear while he was on tour in Europe.

He returned home late on Saturday and reported the theft on Sunday.

Some of the equipment has been recovered from a guitar store.

No arrests have been reported.

Equipment was also taken from a storage unit in Iowa and police told Corey Taylor to change all his locks.

Slipknot headlined Download Festival last month and also performed in Belgium and Sweden.
