Slip And Fall

by thoughtsonthedead

Last night’s Help>Slip>Frank’s was good, but this one from 5/9/77 in Buffalo (home to a solid half-dozen HoF shows, for some reason) is a little better; you’ve probably heard it once or twice.

Here’s a fun experiment to do with Slipknot!: sing the riff. The big, twisty one at the end that comes out of the jam: just sing along and see how many notes into it you can get before you go off the cliff. Now do it on an instrument and in sync with four or five other people who are on different drugs than you are.

It’s a miracle they ever made it through that song at all.
