Scrid, SLIPKNOT at Gabes in Iowa City (Concert Poster) Original 1998 11X14.25. From the John D. Hopkins and Reed Mullin Collection. Hopkins, resident of Oquawka, IL and soundman to Corrosion of Conformity and a multitude of other bands passed away unexpectedly at the age of 50 after blazing a trail through his industry of live sound and touring with some of the best names in metal. His first sound gig was at the infamous Gabe’s in Iowa City. It was a gig that, with hard work, would eventually lead him to doing live sound and managing tours all over the world for such bands as COC, Weedeater, Orange Goblin, Neurosis, Overkill, Uncle Acid, Sleep, High on Fire and The Melvins. Along with doing live sound John also played music with regional bands such as Aunt Acid, Brick, Scrid, Kita, Burnout and The Horde. John was himself also a huge fan of music and had accumulated a vast collection while traveling and running live sound. He had recently been gifted the vinyl collection of his friend Reed Mullin (co-founder and drummer of Corrosion of Conformity) who had recently passed away himself. Mullin co-founded COC in Raleigh, NC with guitarist Woody Weatherman, bassist Mike Dean, and vocalist Benji Shelton. They combined their up-tempo hardcore with the hard rock influence of Black Sabbath to land in their distinct punk-metal crossover style. Those influenced by Mullin include Dave Grohl (who called Mullin his drumming hero), Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, guitarist Matt Sweeney, Charlie Benante of Anthrax, and Lars Ulrich.
