Slipknot's Appearance On Artsnight TV Show Previewed (Top Story)
Taylor describes seeing the band before he joined and how he was captivated by the visual element of their show. He says: "I was there for the first Slipknot show. I was in the audience, it was before I'd even joined the band. It was so many different things all at once. It was visual, it was visceral, it was antagonistic, it was dangerous, it was powerful.
"I'd never seen a band like that before. It was taking everything that had been done creatively, artistically, visually and taking it to such a different realm.
"I loved the fact that every mask was different because it represented a different person, it wasn't all linear and just thrown together. I felt that everyone put a lot of time and thought into what they were doing. So when I did join, after some trial and error, it came to emboss that theory onto the mask that I was wearing."
Crahan, the man behind much of the visual side of Slipknot, talks about the day a mask changed his life. Read about that and watch the preview clip - here.
