Slipknot Part Ways With Percussionist Chris Fehn

Slipknot has announced that they have severed ties with percussionist Chris Fehn. Fehn recently filed a lawsuit against the band for financial disputes. The keg-basher has also accused his bandmates – primarily Corey Taylor and Shawn “Clown” Crahan – of unfairly distributing the band’s financial compensation.

The band has posted the following statement regarding this announcement:

Slipknot‘s focus is on making album #6, and our upcoming shows around the world, our best ever. Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot. We are disappointed that he chose to point fingers and manufacture claims, rather than doing what was necessary to continue to be a part of Slipknot. We would have preferred he not take the path that he has, but evolution in all things is a necessary part of this life.

Long live the Knot
