Slipknot percussionist and backup vocalist M. Shawn Crahan AKA Clown recently tore his bicep tendon while performing on-stage during the band’s recent ‘Knotfest LA’ concert. Due to the injury, Shawn was forced to miss the band’s performance at ‘Welcome to Rockville’ last night, November 11th, in order to undergo surgery.
Via social media, Crahan posted the below video and following message:
“If you look close enough you can pinpoint the exact frame where clown completely tore the bicep tendon from the radial tuberosity with proximal retraction, proximal to the coronoid fossa of the humerus.
With that being said, you may have realized I was not on stage in Florida with my brothers and my culture tonight. For this fact I am saddened.
I had surgery today in Los Angeles, everything went great and I am recovering peacefully.
I can’t express how happy and blessed I am to have been able to come back to touring after all that we as a community have been through the last couple years. And I promise we will see you all very soon. Thank you.
Hail The Knot🤘🏽”
In more news, Slipknot recently premiered their new song titled “The Chapeltown Rag,” which marks The Knot’s first new music in two years. The band performed the track live for the first time at the recent Knotfest gathering in LA.
