Craig Jones (born February 11, 1972) is a musician, better known as the sampler of the metal band Slipknot. In the early days, Craig originally joined Slipknot as a guitar player, but later switched to being
in control of the samples working with Sid Wilson. Craig also controls the guitar effects used live. His mask in the early
days of Slipknot was a pilot's helmet with long needles, but eventually switched to a tight leather mask with nine inch nails
in it. Craig is also in charge of the official Slipknot website, (www.slipknot1.com), which he once ran with his wife before
their divorce. His ex-wife died May 3, 2005.
While all of the Slipknot band members wear their stage masks on stage, most have been seen without
their masks, mainly due to side projects they may be involved in that do not have this same tradition. However, Craig Jones
is the most elusive face of Slipknot, and no fan has ever seen his true face.
