Slipknot is a heavy-metal band consisting of nine members, all of whom are male, who became popular because of its extreme music and dramatic stage performances.
This group was first formed in the late 1995 in the unlikely locale of Des Moines, IA.
Slipknot was in California recording its 1999 self-titled debut, and guitarist Josh Brainard had just left the group."They called a couple times," Root said during a phone interview. ' 'Jim, very few times in life do you get an opportunity to take a huge step forward. Even if it doesn't work out, you could always come back to doing what you do now.' Root made the call and ended up joining what would become one of the biggest bands in metal.
On May 10 Root is returning to the city where he decided to join.
