Nicknamed "Log", "Molten Metal God" November 3, 1973
Mick is the lead guitarist of the band. He's huge, as you can see. He claims to be a fan of serial killers, but he loves cats. Mick is apparently a night person. Previously he had a job teaching guitar lessons at "Ye Olde Guitar Shop", but he stopped in 1999a. Before the famous overalls Mick dressed himself up as Little Bo Peep. There have been speculations that the old slipknot member Grouch was just Mick wearing a different mask, these speculations are untrue.
When Mick was 14, he worked in a fast food restaurant for 2 weeks.
James is actually taller than Mick, contrary to what it looks like and what most people think. James is 6'6" and Mick is 6'2".
Quote - "If I were a famous killer, I'd take some of the finer points of quite a few of them - Albert Fish and Ed Gein spring to mind. But I'm not a violent person by nature. Don't fuck with me, and you'll be fine."
Mask: He has several masks, one is a modified hockey mask, painted a yellowish gold with more custom features. His other is a mask made to look like metal, but is actually made from black leather. MEANING: "HATE! PURE FUCKIN HATE!"
Unconfirmed facts: Mick enjoys listening to Jimi Hendrix, Immolation, Morbid Angel, Beatles, and Deicide. He also continues to give guitar lessons at Ye Old Guitar Shop in Iowa.

Anders on Mick: "Avid fisherman. He & I went fishing together several times. Not as mean as he looks, by any means. He's a good guy, although he has a fascination with Serial Killers. Although he didn't record any of MFKR he is still pictured on the album." - Anders.
