|Nicknamed "Monkeyboy" ("Rat Boy") 15/03/1978
Sid is a sick son of a Bitch. He's really sarcastic, and he claims he suffers from 'organic brain syndrome'. Sid and Shawn (6) maintain a rivalry, which usually breaks out as violence on stage. Sid is definitely one of the craziest people in the band, he has stage dived from a 2 storey balcony. Sid is the youngest of the band, Joey describes Sid as a "lady's man" Sid's family is from England. Sid is the crowd surfer of the band. He's not the only member that does, but he'll do some crazy shit.
Sid was born with 6 fingers on each hand, they were amputated at birth, Shawn: "They cut off his goddamn fingers cos society doesn't like them. Think what a DJ he coulda been with those extra fingers! We've been deprived of that cos of those motherfuckers!"
Rumour: When asked what hobbies he had he responded: "snowboarding, sculpting with clay and cooking."
Band he would most like to play/tour with: "It wouldn't go in with the genre of Slipknot, but me personally, it would be the Beastie Boys. At the point where I got into DJing, break dancing and hip hop, the Beastie Boys were a big part of that . I have always listened to them."
Sid's musical Influences:
1. Grandmaster Flash
2. DJ Jazzy Jeff
3. DJ Cash Plenty
4. Invisible Scratch Pickles Crew
5. Executioners (formerly the X-Men)
6. S.P.C. (scroll down for more about SPC)
Best Concert: The first time I saw Slipknot. I was going to try out for the band, so I went to a show here in Des Moines, Iowa. This was a few years ago. When I saw them, I knew I had to be in this band.
First Concert: When I was three years old, my family went to the Iowa State Fair and saw Sheena Easton.
Performance: Most recently was our last London show. They had this huge balcony twenty-five feet high. I stood on top of the railing and jumped off backwards with my body straight and my arms out to the side. The crowd caught me.
Moment in the studio: I think Purity. There was a lot of emotion, vibing up each other, and taking it to the next level. It just kind of happened.

Quote - "Wearing this mask prevents the oxygen from going to my skull. I get hallucinations and stuff. Half the time, I don't know what's going on around me. Its up to the clown to intimidate me and keep me in line."
"My name's Sid, I'm the DJ guy, I'm the filth epitome, #0"
Rumour: On a Howard Stern show, Sid wanked in the corner of the room - make of it what you will.
Mask - Sid wears a variety of gas masks and has around 8 which all have names. MEANING: "That's too much of a deeper conversation to get into. You need much more time to ask me a question like that, Another time."

Sid's work as DJ Starscream: Sid also goes by the name of "DJ Starscream" , He had previously released "Back 2 Da Jungle", Volumes 1 to 3 and he also did some work with other DJs. Sid is currently working on a new CD, the publisher was going to be 1500 records however they have gone out of business and thus the CD has been postponed BUT WILL be released through Sound Proof Coalition in the future, he will be working on this during the Ozzfest tour 2001 of Europe and the US. There is also a rumour that Sid has been talking to "Necro" form Brooklyn NY about rapping on his solo album which is due for release towards the end of the year. There may also be a guest appearance by B-Real of Cypress Hill but as of yet this is unconfirmed; it is in the planning stages.
Before slipknot, Sid was a DJ at raves and clubs, etc..., he has formed a group of midwest American DJs called "Sound Proof Coalition" - A-Rock, Loodachris, Phase II, Rek, Sub Two, Iniversoul and Starscream (a.k.a Sid).
