Since Slipknot formed in the mid-'90s, they started using masks and hence, it has now become a fundamental part of their identity. Linchpin Clown came up with the idea of their masks. It so happened that their first ever gig was on the Halloween of 1995 and during rehearsals, the idea popped in the minds of the Linchpin Clown.
Mick's first-ever mask was a hockey-mask. But, after a while, he changed it to a black leather gimp mask.
