Slipknot/GWAR question

So a bunch of drunks are sitting around a bar one one night. During a discussion about everything from Bush to Omarosa, from jail bait to well, jail bait, someone came up with the wackiest story of the night.

It was suggessted that members of either Slipknot or GWAR were former employees of Best Buy. The drunk was pretty adimant about it.

Does anyone know if there is truth to this?

I doubt the GWAR part because BB was not in VA around the time that GWAR would have needed to work in a retail job.

speaking of GWAR, has anybody seen pics of them without the costumes? I'd like to see what they really look like.

Heh, he doesn't offsite linking...
They've semi-recently gotten a new Beefcake and a new Flattus, I believe, but I can't find the page where I read about that.

I don't remember any of the Slipknot guys working at Best Buy, but they're a few years older than me, so it's posssible. Corey Taylor worked in a porn store for a while, that's kind of like Best Buy...

Slipknot's from Des Moines and there are 2 Best Buys in Des Moines that have been open for quite a while so I guess its possible.
