Slipknot DJ Starscream Sees Ghosts Where Extra Toes And Fingers Left Off

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The comic-horror metal band Slipknot is well known for its freaky visuals and scary heavy metal sounds – but it’s their DJ that’s got the ghost stories.

Except that it’s the ghosts of his missing fingers and toes that Sid Wilson III, aka DJ Starscream, claims to be haunted by.

The multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist and Iowa native says he was born with six fingers to each hand, six toes on each foot – but the extra digits were amputated before he left the hospital.

In Wilson’s words: “I know now it seems like an advantage, especially with the music I make now – but there was no way my parents were going to put me through that.”

However, Wilson says he’s holding hope that “in another generation or so, humans may be ready” for babies with the extra fingers and toes.

Wilson’s solo debut at DJ Starscream, The New Leader, hits stores Aug. 29.
