Confirmed: Edsel Dope Is Static-X’s ‘Xer0’
Was there ever any doubt that ‘Xer0,’ the highly unsettling Wayne Static cosplayer currently touring with Static-X (tickets), is, in fact, lead Dope dope Edsel Dope? Dope are on every single one of Static-X’s tour dates, the same way Black Label Society used to be on every Ozzfest. Also, pretending to be Wayne Static every night is probably a nice change of pace from pretending to be a car.
Well, if there was any doubt, you can now lay that doubt to rest. The Danish ‘zine Metal a Day spotted one of Edsel’s tattoos in a photo of ‘Xer0’ performing. So unless some dude has the same exact ink in the same exact spot as the guy who was already rumored to be the Static-X character, this settles it.
Funny enough, this is the second time the mystery member of a prominent band has been identified by an exposed tattoo, after Slipknot’s Alessandro Venturella. We still have yet to identify Tortilla Man, though. Grrr.
