It wasn’t me!
I know I’ve voiced disdain for Slipknot, but I’d never act out in violence against any of its members.
According to reports, a man named Mick Thomson, which is also the name of Slipknot’s guitarist, was allegedly stabbed this morning in a knife fight.
His brother, Andrew, was also injured.
The altercation took place in the guitarist’s front yard, reports say.
Police allege the altercation started inside Mick’s home in Clive, Iowa, and spilled into the front yard about 4:25 a.m., where things got hardcore.
When officers arrived, the two brothers — who seemed to be intoxicated — were separated.
Both sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries, with Mick suffering a stab wound to the back of the noggin.
Both brothers were transported to a local hospital treatment.
Please note reports have not claimed Mick is the same dude who is Slipknot. So, this could all just be about two other goons being douches.
However, Corey Taylor has commented about the fight on Twitter, so you’ve gotta imagine it’s the same Mick. He says that he has heard from the guitarist, who is expected to be OK.
