What members of slipknot formed the band?

Slipknot is an American Heavy Metal band from Des Moines, Iowa, formed in 1995. Slipknot consists of nine members. The current band members are Sid Wilson, Joey Jordison, Paul Gray, Chris Fehn, James Root, Craig Jones, Shawn "Clown" Crahan", Mick Thomson, and Corey Taylor. Each member of the band wears a unique mask.
Each member of Slipknot wears a mask to represent that individual member's personality. The idea for the masks was started because of the idea that bands, at the time, were gaining popularity due to glam or appearance, rather than actual talent. When Slipknot first formed, they despised mainstream culture and most popular bands, so they decided to wear masks as a way to be different. In many interviews, numerous band members have stated that when…
Technically, as many as you can fit in your rehearsal space. However, for a tight and focussed group, probably six is the maximum. Nu-metal band Slipknot have nine members, and I have heard of a band with more members than this, although they were a jam band who weren't ever sure how many people were in the band.
This is an ongoing debate. Slipknot defend themselves with the reasons behind each members on masks. However, the gimmick of wearing macks was originally taken by a progressive metal band known as Mushroomhead who were to be singed by Roadrunner records yet instead Slipknot were singed. Coincidence?
