Slipknot's percussionist Chris Fehn is officially out of the band. A member since the self-titled album from1999, #3 sued the rest of his now previous bandmates due to claims he hasn't been properly compensated for his more than 20 years in Slipknot.
Vocalist Corey Taylor and fellow percussionist Shawn Crahan were particularly under Fehn's scope, who said his bandmates had set up "several other Slipknot affiliated business entities" to collect Slipknot-related revenue.
Corey Taylor had the feeling (or information) that this would surface soon enough, so he tweeted about this a few days ago:
Today, the band confirmed Fehn is definitely out of Slipknot:
"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."
