Sidney George Wilson III, also known as DJ Starscream or #0, is an American DJ, keyboardist, rapper, and pianist best known for being the turntablist for Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Slipknot.
Until bassist Alessandro Venturella and drummer Jay Weinberg, who were born in 1984 and 1990, respectively, Wilson was the band’s youngest member.
Sid Wilson was born and raised in the Iowa city of Des Moines. Both of his parents are from England. He is a member of the American band Slipknot, as well as DJ Starscream, a name inspired by the Transformers character of the same name.
He has Transformer tattoos and is a fan of the Transformers franchise. Wilson contributes scratching, sound effects, horrorlike noises, as well as background noises and effects to Slipknot’s music.
When it came time to assign numbers to each band member, he insisted on being number zero because it symbolized filth. In Slipknot’s early years, he was known to stage dive, and in 2008, he broke both of his heels when he jumped ten feet from the stage.
