Read my review and check out my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of Slipknot's Summer's Last Stand Tour with Lamb of God, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless In White.
Slipknot is no stranger to overcoming adversity, including the death of founding bassist Paul Gray in 2010 and the exit of longtime drummer Joey Jordison in 2013. While these events have undoubtedly impacted the band internally, their live show has gone unphased; it remains a spectacle of chaos, both sonically and visually.

Slipknot bassist Alex Venturella passed out during the band's show in Connecticut last night due to severe dehydration. He was rushed to the hospital, where he recuperated overnight, and he will be back with the band at tomorrow's show in Mansfiled, MA.
After a medical emergency during last night's show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex 'V-Man' Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his ...

Slipknot's guitarist, Mick Thompson, was allegedly stabbed multiple times by his brother.
Police tell us ... the Thomson bros were hanging out at his Clive, Iowa home when things got extremely heated and a fight broke out. Cops say both guys appeared extremely intoxicated. The two men suffered multiple stab wounds. Mick got nailed in the back of the head.
Police are currently investigating. So far no charges have been filed.

Read my review and look at my photos from the final date of Slipknot's "Prepare for Hell" tour with Korn and King 810 on December 7 in Lowell, MA. The whole thing, I think, was sick.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor didn't hesitate to call "Prepare for Hell" one of the best tours of the band's career. It says a lot that both Slipknot and Korn are still going strong, releasing interesting material and putting on such strong performances 15+ years later. The thousands of fans in attendance clearly loved it, and the late Gray would be proud to see his brothers carrying on his legacy with such reverence.

I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New...
