Wouldn't be surprised if I see a comment soon that says something around the lines of, "Hope they get bombed during the show."

Chances of them getting attacked in Tel Aviv, Isreal are pretty slim compared to the rest of the Mid East. Maybe good ol Uncle Ted will be sucurity for them?

Isreal, is also a country that lets anyone in and out too. So I doubt any issues will arise in that department, unless they forget their passport's, in which would kinda be funny! "Metal band Slipknot forgets passport's, gets stuck in Isreal" *LOL*

Kalis you've just given me a great idea for next years April Fools day! :P

As far as how responsive Israel would be to Slipknot, I don't know if this is their first time in Israel but I can't see them having any problems. Whilst it is a religious state, I've never heard of them getting pissy about heavy metal or music in general. For example, in some Arabic countries, Bohemian Rhapsody is banned because the subject matter involves the main character selling his soul to the devil. I also think the majority of Israelites know that alot of the lyrical content in music is only the opinion of the author so if Slipknot were to play The Heretic Anthem for example, I'm sure no offense would be taken as even if it is meant as an attack on religion, it's aimed alot more at Christianity in general.

Lol, Ted Nugent = Chuck Norris with a ponytail.

They could both do security for Slipknot, and then they wouldn't need to hire anyone else to be their bodyguards.. lol, that'd be great.

Clay Aiken was some gay singer guy from American Idol. He was terrible, and obviously gay. Then he had a test-tube baby with his male assistant, and then came out of the closet. Whoever didn't know he was gay a long time ago needs their gaydar fixed.

He is also someone I've seen Corey Taylor profusely making out with.
