a.k.a. (#6), one of the founding members of the masked metal Band Slipknot
... his nickname comes from the fact that he wears a clown mask on stage during the band's live performances... his equipment consists of 2 empty beer kegs, 2 toms and 2 bass drums
... he and percussionist Chris Fehn
would supply the backbeat to Slipknot's former drummer, Joey Jordison
... during their early touring years, Clown was noted for injuring himself on stage--during Ozzfest '99, he even slammed his head into his kegs, causing an injury that required 39 stitches to heal... Clown has been a mighty contributor to the band in that besides his writing and playing, he has also directed 5 of their music videos as well as their third video album Voliminal: Inside the Nine... Currently, he has the longest tenure in Slipknot at 20 years... Slipknot's frontman Corey Taylor
has stated that while Shawn is sane, "Clown" is crazy!
Dude, that mask is creepy. I know, that's Shawn "Clown" Crahan. I wouldn't mess with him, just enjoy the show!
