“We wish Jones all the best for the future.”

Jones joined Slipknot in 1996 as the designated #5. He has played on every Slipknot album starting with 1999’s ‘Slipknot’ through to 2022’s ‘The End, So Far’, seven albums later.

Jones’ began his tenure in Slipknot wearing pantyhouse over his head. That changed to the astronaut suit and then the bondage mask.
