||This is Corey, the eighth
band member of SlipKnoT. He is the voice behind SlipKnoT's songs. Corey was previously in another band called
'Stone Sour' and has working in a porn shop as a previous job on his CV.
Corey has a deep hatred for Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit who apparently
called SlipKnoT fans fat ugly and lazy kids. Corey, being
the...ahem...gentleman that he is, stuck up for the fans and as you can guess
things just got from bad to worse from then on. It is believed [although i
cannot confirm] that the rivalry between SlipKnoT and Limp Bizkit has led
to disagreements between KoRn and SlipKnoT. Although not an original
member of SlipKnoT, Corey is now perhaps the most integral part of the
Corey's nickname is "The
Corey's mask as you can see resembles the
bad guy out of scream. The dreadlocks used to be his real
hair but apparently they were a bit of a hassle to thread in, therefore
his hair is now trimmed and hence the locks are fake.
BAND MEMBER #8

Mick has two different masks. One is
one made out of leather and has a metallic finish to it. The other is a
green hockey mask.
BAND MEMBER #7
||This is Shawn Crahan, one
of the founders of SlipKnoT. Shawn has a reputation for being spontaneous
on the stage and often is responsible for the 'fights' which break out on
stage with other band members. Shawn's instrument [titanium drums] were
made by himself, and one of his previous jobs was a welder. He was the
first band member to wear a mask and and also the first to wear coveralls.
Although on stage he doesn't possess the qualities required to be a
father, off stage he is more calm and has a wife and three kids.
Shawn's nickname is "Kong".
Shawn bought his mask in a clear out
sale and has made a few additions to it. He quotes that "he always
wanted to be a clown" because of his split personality.

Craig's mask was originally a divers
helmet which he found at a gas station. The spikes on top are nails which
he pushed through and then stuck on using tape.
BAND MEMBER #5
|Standing at 6ft 6"
tall James Root is by far the tallest member of the band. He is also the
newest member to join the band. He used to wear a bondage mask formerly
worn by the band member he replaced [Josh] but now wears his own mask as
shown in the picture. Craig is another guitarist in the group. James
claims that before he joined the band he was timid and now he claims to be
James' nickname is "The
Peach" [from James and giant peach i guess].
James mask is apparently absolutely
filthy! Other band members have told him how much the mask smells

courtroom jester/demon which he claims resembles his personality.

the soft speaker in the band. Chris is another percussionist in the band.

BAND MEMBER #3
||Paul Grey along with Shawn
are the two members who founded SlipKnoT. Paul's instrument is the bass
guitar. He is the only member of SlipKnoT who was not born in Iowa, he was
born in Los Angeles. From various interviews and band tributes, Paul seems
to be one of the nicest characters in SlipKnoT, but i'm sure he would deny
Doesn't have a nickname [to my
Paul's mask is a pig [well duh!] and
yeh well thats it!
BAND MEMBER #2
||This is Joey Jordison, who
was one of the original members of SlipKnoT. Joey is the shortest guy out
of the band but he's has the most charismatic personality out of all them
[its not hard to see why so many fans like him the best]. He's very down
to earth and very good at performing his role of drummer of the group.
Before Joey joined SlipKnoT, he was in a band called 'Anal Blast'. He is
also the one who created the term 'Maggot' [A maggot is a SlipKnot fan]
and he also writes a lot of songs for the band. Joey also performed some
of the mixing for the self-titled album. Joey also has his suit trimmed so
that he can move his legs and arms about freely when drumming.
Doesn't have a nickname [to my
Joey wears a dark, bland, Japanese
mask, which has some scars painted onto it.
BAND MEMBER #1
||At 22, Sid Wilson, is the
youngest member of SlipKnot. Sid plays the turntables and according to
many fans, suffers from the arrogance of youth. He is constantly involved
in fights with #6 [Shawn] live on stage and is most definitely one of the
most flamboyant characters in SlipKnoT. Sid claims to be suffering from
'Organic brain syndrome' [don't ask me what that is coz i don't knoy
Sid's nickname is "Monkeyboy".
Sid's mask collection is well over 5,
and he is known to name each one. They all gas masks and he also says that
some of them reduce oxygen flow to his brain which sometimes lead to him
hallucinating on stage.
