Sid Wilson leaves giant tip

Posted by on February 2, 2015

Sid Wilson from Slipknot left a hefty tip after a recent visit to club Cubana in Sheffield, England. The tip was left for pianist Ralph Salt, who Blabbermouth is reporting has performed at the popular venue for over 50 years.

Said Salt about his encounter with the Slipknot DJ:

“Sid was a real gentleman and couldn’t have been further removed from his SLIPKNOT persona. He was very appreciative of my performance and even asked me to play my choice of sentimental song as an encore. I thought a Joe Cocker song was the perfect choice, given his recent passing, and Sid listened intently throughout.

It’s fair to say I was presented with the biggest tip I’ve ever had in my career and it couldn’t have come from a more unlikely candidate!”

Wilson left him a 100EURO, which is around $112 in American dollars. Slipknot is currently on tour with King 810 over in Europe, and will head to Australia for Soundwave Festival on February 21st. Once they get back to the states they’ll be doing a tour with Hatebreed.
