The Untold Truth About Slipknot Legend – Sid Wilson

Published

on

Who is Sid Wilson?

American musician Sidney George ‘Sid’ Wilson was born in Des Moines, Iowa USA, on 20 January 1977, making Aquarius his zodiac sign. He’s probably known best for being the turntablist of the famous heavy metal band Slipknot.

Education and early life

Sid was raised in Des Moines by his parents who were originally from England; he hasn’t shared many other details about his mother and father, nor has he spoken about having siblings, which is why many of his fans believe him to be an only child.

He studied at a local high school in Des Moines, and had a rather normal childhood; Sid became passionate about music during his teenage years, was a member of the school’s band, and learned to play various instruments. He became interested in turntablism at the age of 16, and is self-taught. He was also into acting and appeared in a couple of school plays, while Sid could have been seen playing soccer for the school team.

He matriculated in 1995, and then focused on music, rather than to pursue a college degree.

The heavy metal band Slipknot was formed by bassist Paul Gray, drummer Joey Jordison and percussionist Shawn Crahan in 1995.

The band’s debut album “Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.” was released on 31 October 1996, and Sid joined them as their turntablist two years later, choosing #0 as his number, because it represents filth; they signed a seven-year $500,000 worth contract with Roadrunner Records on 8 July 1998, and under them released their album “Slipknot” on 29 June 1999, which was regarded as their ‘new debut album’. It was eventually certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the first for Roadrunner Records.

Their second album “Iowa” was released on 28 August 2001 and ranked #3 on the Billboard Albums chart, while topping the charts in the UK. After a short hiatus from mid-2002 through mid-2003, the band began working on their third album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)”, which was released on 25 May 2004; it reached #2 on Billboard Albums.

Sid revealed in February 2022 that he and Kelly were in a romantic relationship, but hasn’t disclosed for how long they’ve actually been together; Kelly gave birth to their son in the second half of 2022, but they’re keeping the boy away from the media’s attention.
