Slipknot guitarist undergoes spinal surgery

Slipknot guitar player Mick Thomson has revealed that he recently underwent spinal surgery in Los Angeles, CA. Thomson is the third member of Slipknot, joining Corey Taylor and Jim Root, to have spinal surgery within the past year or so. Thomson had this to say via Instagram (x-ray photos below):
"I recently joined the cyborg club. Sore as fuck but hope to be back to mid 2000s banging by our next record cycle. Should probably just have every disc replaced all the way down to be safe. Dr. Perri and the entire staff were awesome."
