Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn Crahan (aka Clown) suffered a torn bicep tendon while performing at the band's Knotfest Los Angeles concert on November 5. The injury forced Crahan to miss the group's appearance at Welcome to Rockville last night (November 11) and ultimately necessitated surgery, which took place yesterday in Los Angeles.

Crahan shared the following information (and video) via Instagram:

"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."
