Clown un­masked

Ev­ery­thing you ever wanted to know about #6…

Kerrang! (UK) - - The K! Interview -

BORN: Septem­ber 24, 1969 in Des Moines, Iowa. LIVES: Des Moines, Iowa. ED­U­CA­TION: A ma­jor in cre­ative writ­ing. And no, not from Clown Col­lege. BANDS: Slipknot, To My Sur­prise, Dirty Lit­tle Rab­bits, The Black Dots Of Death… and an as-yet-un­ti­tled project with three other mem­bers of Slipknot ( see panel,over the page).

SPE­CIAL SKILLS:

Per­cus­sion; not just the drums, but just gen­er­ally smash­ing the shit out of any­thing in sight. Also: song­writ­ing, pro­duc­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy and di­rect­ing, and serv­ing as the vis­ual brains be­hind the ’Knot.

MOST LIKELY TO SAY:

“Fuck you, get out of my fuck­ing way.”

LEAST LIKELY TO SAY:

“I ab­so­lutely care about your opin­ion, please tell me more.” HE’S A LE­GEND BE­CAUSE: He’s the founder of one of the great­est bands of all time. But even away from that, Clown is equal parts masked me­tal ma­niac and care­ful, con­sid­ered artist – and he’s thrillingly un­pre­dictable as a re­sult.
