     Slipknot . . . so much history.  Let’s just talk the origins of the masks.

     The idea of wearing masks came from original member Shawn Crahan (aka Shawn the Clown), who would bring a clown mask to band practice when the band first started.   In late 1997, the band decided every band member would wear a unique mask and matching jumpsuit.

     Lead singer Corey Taylor . . .  ” It’s our way of becoming more intimate with the music. It’s a way for us to become unconscious of who we are and what we do outside of music. It’s a way for us to kind of crawl inside it and be able to use it.”
