Corey Taylor Responds To Craigslist Ad From Slipknot Tribute Band Seeking Vocalist

A Slipknot tribute band called Of The (SiC) are currently looking for a new vocalist and they recently posted a Craigslist ad that includes requirements such as having “the same or near same physical shape as Corey Taylor” and “the same vocal range.” The humorous ad has since caught the attention of Taylor, who actually responded to it.

The ad said the following:

“We are an established Slipknot tribute band, dubbed the most accurate Slipknot tribute in the world. We focus on their 1999-2001 album and touring cycle, and plan on moving through the other eras.

We are in need of someone in the same or near same physical shape as Corey Taylor, 5’8. That has the same vocal range, stage experience is a must! Be able to command a crowd and act the part.

(You would need to buy multiple jumpsuits, etc. a mask will be provided for now for accuracy sake.)

Please be dedicated, if you decide to be a part of this band, we need you to give it your all for as long as the band exists.

Thank you for reading this far, please contact us if you feel that you fit the part.

Of The (SiC)”

Taylor then responded with the below tweet:

Singer Of Clown Themed Iron Maiden Tribute Band Powerclown Arrested For Smuggling $7 Million Worth Of Stimulants Into Japan

Here’s an interesting story for you. Global News is reporting that Vancouver, BC based musician Daniel “Dicksee Diànno” Whitmore, who fronts a clown themed Iron Maiden tribute band called Powerclown, was arrested on December 11, 2017 after trying to smuggle $7 million dollars worth of “stimulant drugs” into Japan. Authorities at the Narita International Airport found the drugs inside his guitar case and tea canisters. Considering the fact that Japan has a zero-tolerance for drug offences, he could face some serious jail time.

The band’s guitarist Sketchy Klown commented:

“Flags are flying half mast at the Powerclown circus tent. I assure you, any frowns we are wearing are real. Painted on or not. All we can do is hope for the best for him. Clownery and parlour tricks, whether by him or us ain’t gonna do no good. Even with his voice, the voice of a songbird, and his velvet-painting-smooth charm, he wont be able to talk his way out of these hijinks, even if he did speak Japanese.

While none of us clowns condone Dicksee‘s actions, or recommend anyone else attempting something this foolish, we do hope for the best for our grease-painted pal. We hope that by some small…make that large…miracle, he somehow manages to slide into his cock-pink pants and dance himself back home to face this different form of music he has created for himself. We love you Dicksee. If you somehow make it back here, and we hope you do, we may even go easy on you. Maybe. No promises.
