to someone's Godsmack, the Tool

Craig "113" Jones from Slipknot
(the one with the spiky mask) is related to The Stig
Neither talk and neither are seen without their mask/helmet. Plus, Jones' first version of his spiky mask was a full-face helmet with a Sinclair Oil sticker on it and nails driven through it. He's The Stig's American rock star cousin.
