Last night Slipknot shared a short video clip of frontman Corey Taylor knocking a cell phone out of the hands of a fan texting during a recent Slipknot concert. Explaining his behavior, Taylor said, "If you're gonna text, stay home." Here's the video:


When reminded via Twitter that the fan might have been texting about something important (health of a child, etc.), Taylor responded, "Fair enough. But you might wanna do it between sets or between songs. Am I right?"

Pressed further, Taylor stuck to his guns: "Okay. But it doesn't mean I with a broken neck and still playing a show can't get pissed that someone's ignoring it."
