Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn suing bandmates

Thursday, March 14, 2019 10:03 AM PT


Chris Fehn, percussionist of Slipknot for more than 20 years, has allegedly filed a lawsuit against his bandmates.

According to The Blast, Fehn claims that he hasn't been properly compensated for his more than 20 years in Slipknot, specifically calling out vocalist Corey Taylor and fellow percussionist Shawn Crahan for using separate companies through which to funnel money.

Fehn purportedly discovered that his bandmates had set up "several other Slipknot affiliated business entities" to collect Slipknot-related revenue that he should have been entitled to share.

The Blast reports that Fehn is requesting a full forensic accounting of Slipknot's financial infrastructure.


UPDATE: Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has now commented on the matter via Twitter:

i know its a silly headline, but if its true he's right to get his share. bands need to share money equally.

guy that jerks off his dick nose mask and beats on drums that aren't even in the mix is suing the guy that wears the clown mask who beats on other drums that aren't even in the mix.

maybe if they didn't have 2 drummers they don't need and a dj AND a guy running samplers they would all have more money

It sounds like they gave him 555 dollars when they should have given him 666.

I honestly wouldn't doubt that this was true.
Why would the dude commit career suicide and have all of this forensic investigation stuff done if in the end...it was for nothing.

I'm sure he confronted them and it turned into this massive ordeal, in which they (aka probably just Corey) kicked him out.

Also...'Long Live The Knot' makes me think of an ever lasting butthole.
