Slipknot's Clown tears bicep tendon during Knotfest concert, undergoes surgery

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."

Thought it would be hard to top how absurd Code Orange's statement was but he got there.

this dude probably has the easiest paycheck in america today and he still managed to f*ck it up

look on the upside, mr clown, you should walk out of this with a decent opioid addiction if you don't already have one

"My culture" He is missing the Klan rallys.

What a bitch.

Biggest disaster related to a fest in the past week by far.

Posting a video of an embarrassing injury and thinking it's cool should be a misdemeanor in all 50 states

adult male tears tendon hitting beer keg with baseball bat.

anonymous 11/12/2021 10:15:45 AM

This dude is what, 50 years old banging on garbage cans still?

anonymous 11/12/2021 10:18:05 AM

It's gotta be so f*cking sweet to travel the world, make millions, and have people worship you all for just loitering on stage and swinging a bat at a beer keg. What a sweet gig.

anonymous 11/12/2021 10:20:28 AM

This guys days of abusing kegs are over. I saw a guy tear his ACL playing hacky-sack and he never hacked another sack.

anonymous 11/12/2021 10:24:09 AM

I've had the same injury and I can tell you that it hurts like hell. Even after surgery, it's very painful.

anonymous 11/12/2021 10:54:06 AM

Doesnt he literally not even play an instrument? He got injured hitting a f*cking trash can?

anonymous 11/12/2021 10:54:43 AM

I tore my bicep hanging sheetrock once.

anonymous 11/12/2021 11:00:27 AM

Too much beer keg!!! Kings of kegcore

anonymous 11/12/2021 11:28:27 AM

lol time to hang it up if beating on a keg caused this

anonymous 11/12/2021 11:35:48 AM

I hope he's at least vaccinated

anonymous 11/12/2021 12:07:31 PM

No more klang klang. Relieved.

anonymous 11/12/2021 12:27:19 PM

A torn bicep tendon is nothing. How about you carry Sheetrock every day for 10 years and see what kind of chronic back pain you have.

anonymous 11/12/2021 12:36:08 PM

beer keg flip

anonymous 11/12/2021 1:44:48 PM

anyone remember when Adam that manager dude was "tight with Clown"?

anonymous 11/12/2021 2:27:57 PM

That's what you get for not tuning your garbage can down to Drop D. Also, he really tore his anus.

anonymous 11/12/2021 4:06:05 PM

Damn keg hit back

anonymous 11/12/2021 6:23:45 PM

List dudes who do little or nothing musically onstage - off the top of my head: Beau Beau from Avail Taxman from Corporate Avenger Clown from Slipknot Anyone else?

anonymous 11/12/2021 6:43:31 PM

Evergreen Terrace has a useless guy in the band. He's a hype man or some shit.

anonymous 11/12/2021 7:13:51 PM

Vended is stoked

anonymous 11/12/2021 7:16:39 PM

Todd Jones here. I once tore every muscle in my upper body at TIHC screaming "Unsilent f*cking Death" before we ripped into our classic track, Unsilent Death. Who cares.

anonymous 11/13/2021 7:36:43 AM

Tearing muscles is a female trait

anonymous 11/13/2021 9:25:58 AM

The juxtaposition of self-written pseudo-intellectual text coupled with video footage of what appears to be a fully grown man aggressively hitting a beer keg with a Louisville Slugger to the beat of some butt rock begs the question: trolling or just retarded?

carveyournamein 11/13/2021 2:37:02 PM

Reported for use of the r-word, ableist.

anonymous 11/14/2021 5:24:22 AM

I literally do not see the moment it occurs. It looks like he's fine in this clip.

carveyournamein 11/14/2021 7:32:07 PM

I didn't see it either lol
