Slipknot details!!!!

So on an interview with Full Metal Jackie Corey Taylor spilled a few beans, but didn't give it all to us. The most interesting part is the part about the masks:

"... We wanted to make something that still looked unified but still stayed with the spirit of what the band is all about. Instead of trying to find something that was individualistic, we designed — well, Clown designed a mask that the drummer and the bass player will both wear. On one hand they get a mask but at the same time, it’s not the individual mask that we in the band use. We knew that any attempt to do anything like that might be taken as disrespectful, but at the same time it’s part of the way of moving, getting past the hardest steps, which is just moving on. So, we decided that we would come up with a mask that works for both the bassist and the drummer and that’s what they’ll wear on stage."

Here's a link to the interview if you'd like to read it:

I'm super stoked to see who the new members are and what the masks look like! The rumors are Donnie Steele is the bassist, and Jay Weinberg is the drummer. Donnie Steele has been playing bass for Slipknot since Paul Gray died, but wasn't playing on stage. And Jay Weinberg is the son of Max Weinberg who drummed for Bruce Springsteen. Stay tuned my friends!
