SLIPKNOT's SID WILSON Debuts Solo Project In Des Moines (Video)
Fan-filmed video footage of SID, the new solo project of SLIPKNOT DJ Sid Wilson (a.k.a. DJ Starscream), performing the song "Nervous Central" on August 26, 2010 at the Val Air Ballroom in Des Moines, Iowa can be viewed below. (Note: The track doesn't properly kick in until around the 1:50 mark.) Wilson fronts the group, which also features guitarist 9 Ballz, drummer Big Mike, DJ "A-Roc Impossible" and back-up vocalist, Omaha rapper Jamazz.
Guitarist Jim Root said in a recent interview that a "healing process" needs to take place before "we even think about whether or not SLIPKNOT will continue" following the passing of bassist Paul Gray.
Root and singer Corey Taylor are on the road now with STONE SOUR, whose new album, "Audio Secrecy", arrives on September 7.
Gray's body was found on May 24 in a suburban hotel room outside Des Moines, Iowa. A medical examiner ruled that the 38-year-old died of an accidental overdose of morphine and a synthetic form of morphine.
