A puzzling and perplexing video has just been added to Roadrunner Records' official site. The post depicts Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson working the vinyl to a remixed version of the staple Slipknot tracks 'Surfacing' and 'People = S--t.' No explanation has been given by Roadrunner or Slipknot, teasing fans as to the nature of what seems to be a July release.
It seemed only fitting that at this year’s Revolver Golden Gods Awards, members of Slipknot - Corey Taylor, Sid Wilson and M. Shawn Crahan - would be on hand to present the award in the brand new Paul Gray Best Bassist category. The award was named in honor of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray who died in May 2010 from a drug overdose.
The man you know best as DJ #0 (or DJ Starscream, DJ Moonboots or Ratboy) in the masked rock 'n' roll collective Slipknot has gone solo. Others know him by the name Sid Wilson and that's the one he's chosen to release his solo disc, a 13-track affair that hit Internet retailers iTunes and Amazon this week.
