Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan has revealed that he is currently recovering after undergoing surgery for a torn bicep. As a result, the percussionist was forced to miss the band’s November 11 set at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, FL.
Clown said the following:
“Ladies and gentlemen,
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🤘🏽”
