Ongoing History of New Music

Ongoing History Daily: The gift of cow

It’s not uncommon for fans to present their favourite artist with some kind of gift as a token of appreciation. It’s usually something modest, but not in the case of Slipknot.

They had a fan in The Netherlands who went by the name Crazy White Sean and his was a super-insane fan. A number of years ago when Slipknot was in Amsterdam to play a show on Valentine’s Day, Crazy White Sean showed up at the gig with a giant Valentine’s box. Inside was the heart of a cow. “This is my gift to you,” he said.

Even though it smelled awful, someone who was present grabbed it and tried to take a bite out of it. That did not work out well.

If that’s not enough, Slipknot also once received a human femur from a fan. Lovely.
