Slipknot's Clown On Bandmates: 'I Can't Stomach All These Guys'

Band Photo: Slipknot (?)

SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan recently gave an in-depth interview to Metal Temple magazine's Katrina Thompson during the group's visit to Kansas City as part of their world tour. When asked if the rumors were true that SLIPKNOT are going to disband after this tour, Clown said, "Well, you know, I can't promise anything, but I will tell you that we're already planning on another record. Anything can happen, of course. In the early days, there were always three, maybe two and a half years for each cycle. It's a lot of time and here I am on three now. We've communicated, I think we've made the right movements as a band, and I can't stomach all these guys, and I don't care if they like to hear that or not, you know. I'm an only child, I used to think I wanted brothers but I don't. I enjoy being an only child. But that's that, we're gonna stick it out, we're having a lot of fun. We've gotten a new management, we've done really well for ourselves as a business, we've gotten really good at being able to pay bills, this record cycle and our business is good. And it's all not for nothing. I mean, I would do this for as long as I could but the fact of the matter is that I've got four kids, I've got mouths to feed, I've got insurance, medical bills, school clothes, pencils, it's not easy. I mean, this has gotta be my art, but it's gotta pay the bills too. I'm just having a blast and as long as it works, we're all in and it's working. We got great, great, great people that understand what the fuck the KNOT is and if you don't know what the KNOT is then you get cast out, but we finally got those people."

poor rich clown. all kidding aside, that is alot of people to have to deal with. think if u had to see the same 8 co-workers everyday, day in and day out with no break, no going home, no venting when you got home and no end in site with touring. I'd go f***ing bat sh** cus i hate 3/4 of the people I work with and i'll bet slipknot is similar. and whether you had a good day hinged on if the guy sleeping in the bunk 3 feet above you was too. and while i'd rather have their job than mine, i can relate to the tension. i've been in two local bands and my first one, hehe derailed, thus my original name because of tension between the four of us. and our singer/guitarist was a d*** to our bassist all the time, he eventually quit from it. but i'll bet slipknot have that going on to the 10th degree.

Yeah, I bet this is the end for Slipknot, but maybe not, maybe it'll be Clown that leaves, after knowing about this band and their history, I could tell you that Clown would be the first one to leave, because of, one, all the crap in the article, and two, he's got like 3 or 4 kids and a sick wife, if that isn't a reason to leave a band, I don't know what is.

Sid has knack for atmospherics. Jordison is a machine. As much as I like the old Slipknot cds better, than the current one has some pretty tricky solos that Thompson and Root are pulling off. Their better than average axe-men just not on dimebags level.

ok blackdog, obviously u aren't a metallica fan, so u have no clue what my name means. well sit on down by the fire boy cuz ur in for a story. These guys got together back in '83 i no cuz i used to see them in clubs before they got huge. Now guess what they said at the end of every show, in every club i saw them. METAL UP UR ASS! and they also said thanks for coming. So, now that i have enlightened u, u must realize that it is u that is gay, or else u would not have made that assumption.

Blackdog: metal-up-ur-ass? that sounds like what i did with my gay f*** buddy last night. he must be gay too!

well guess wat u dumbsh**, i aint gay, u are. so either learn up on ur metallica or go f*** ur boyfriend.

I could really care less what Mettalica was doing before they got sighned.It's inconsequential to what's going on right now especially when you consider the fact that were talking about SlipKnot.But obviously I've hurt your feeling's with my accusation's.All I can say to that is you started it d*** Rider . "man i respect this band, so shut up blackdog, go back to ur malt liquor and fried chicken. This guy has to pay his bills. and this is his job. havent you ever had a job u personally hated?

well black dog, u were insulting my favorite band and i did pick up on the correlation, and obviously u dont no what it means, this is correlation:

The relationship between two variables during a period of time, especially one that shows a close match between the variables' movements. For example, all utility stocks tend to have a high degree of correlation because their share prices are influenced by the same forces. Conversely, gold stock price movements are not closely correlated with utility stock price movements because the two are influenced by very different factors. The concept of correlation is frequently used in portfolio analysis. See also serial correlation.

so, yeah ur an idiot. anyway, and i was just returning the insult you dumb n*****. so f*** you, go ride so fag's c***, that must be on ur mind cuz u seem to be calling everyone that.

You also got upset about a post that had nothing to do with you.It was not an insult and it was absolutely correct.This also say's something about you.Last but not least the gay jokes really f***ed with you did'nt they.You just can't get past the fact that I implied you like d*** can you,but I'm the one that's gay.WHATEVER b****.Your a clown.

Yeah, if it werent for some sh**ty little sell out acts like Nickleback or freaks of nature such as My Chemical Romance and Coheed and Cambria my logic would be all rock/metal/punk bands unite in the face of bad pop music everywhere. Kind of the "us vs them" stance rock and metal bands were taking between 98-2001 against that tsunami of pop and r&b garbage that was surfacing on trl. and after trl, all media everywhere constantly. It's a differnt world now, and emo is still a force in rock somehow....Not so many boybands from what i can tell but lots of terrible solo artists......We need another rock renaissance like the mid-late 60's.

john you're trippin if you think they have been successful for "12" years ... its more like 5 at the most ... between the s/t and vol. 3 they didn't even do very much, not many tours and it took forever for iowa to come out and besides true metal fans, no-one really bothered with iowa, didn't get much radio play at all ....

they were technically "broken up" for a while too even though they claimed it was just a break .... my friend got backstage passes to a stone sour show and we were talking to corey about slipknot and he said that they were done, too much drama, they weren't getting back together ....

Slipknot is the deseased, reeking birth of a sickness we call nu metal.All the poisons that effect our worthless, dirty lives are the vocabular vomit spewing from Corey Taylors stinking suck-pump. If any of you are still in hip-hop diapers, wipe your zitty asses, put on some big-boy pants, find yourself a brutal, sweaty mosh pit, AND JUMP THE f*** UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude I dont mean that Slip has been successful for 12 years[more or less]. At black goat.com I read they've been together for a sh** load. Not tradisinal[i mangled that one...sorry] SLip as we know it today. Their close to dead metal anyway. Good music always dies.

I don't know if I'd go that far ZerO but you do have a point.It's a different approach to the same thing Gangster Rap is the Hip Hop version of Heavy Metal.Outside the obvious reason's their really are not all that many differences between the people listening.The scary part is ... Well picture this after a highly stressful day I sat down in front of the TV at around 1 AM. with a bottle of Jack and a six pack of Blue Light.after about an hour or so I was reasonably inebriated.Somehow my TV landed on CMT(country music television)their was a black guy Cowboy Troy doing something called HicHop(cross between Hip Hop and country).Now tell me that sh** aint scary !

The world has gone to sh**. Black people are going country singing about playing chicken w/ a train not cops, Head leaves Korn for God, I cut of my hair[lost 13'' today I look so Nazi], my mom quites drinking cold turkey, Luke Skywalker defeats Darth Vader, and My Chemical Romance gets a profile and bio on MetealUnderground but not Acheron. Scary sh** man.

David Allen Coe rocks harder than most metal bands. Sad, but true.

I live in the area where Waylon Jennings grew up.

That's good for you, I guess. Personally, I hate country. I need something with anger, and more of a darker backbone. Country has neither.
