In a recent interview with the Beloit Daily News, SLIPKNOT percussionist Chris Fehn recalled how he came up with his first SLIPKNOT mask and insisted that removing the masks, as KISS and MUDVAYNE removed the make-up, isn't the way the Des Moines, Iowa-based nine-piece will ever go."It was just something cool to do," said Fehn, who wears a yellowish-black, skeleton mask outfitted with a pointy Pinocchio nose. "When I first got it, I cut it up and sewed the straps onto the back. It definitely doesn't look anything like it originally did. "It's a blessing that we don't get recognized. I don't know what it's like to be sitting in a McDonald's with people staring at me. Sometimes it's confusing. I think, 'I'm that guy. Why don't people know me?' But it's nice because I don't have to worry about being at Best Buy, having somebody take a picture of me and, all of a sudden, it's all over the Internet." With regards to living in Des Moines, Iowa, Fehn said, "People out west think we ride horses to school and that it's that primitive back here. It's really a totally killer place to live. You can just take off, and five minutes later, you're on a dirt road hanging out in a cornfield, partying with your friends. It's a good place to be laid-back in."
