Before we begin this little news story of two brothers who have some issues, note that metal band Slipknot is not like other bands. They huff dead things, have strangers pee on them, break stuff for no reason and poop on stage.
Okay, so Slipknot’s guitarist Mick Thomson was stabbed in the head during a knife fight with his brother in Iowa, authorities say.
Thomson reportedly got into it with his brother on Wednesday. The 41-year-old guitarist and his brother got into “an altercation” with his younger sibling Andrew at a residency in Des Moines, Iowa in the early hours of Wednesday morning (11th March), police told CNN affiliate KCCI.
The fight started inside the house and spilled onto the front yard, prompting a neighbor to call authorities.
Both men, suspected of being inebriated, were taken to hospital in separate ambulances, according to the affiliate.
It said the musician was wounded at the back of his head, but did not specify what kind of injuries his brother, Andrew Thomson, suffered.
The band’s frontman, Corey Taylor, tweeted that the guitarist is doing well.
Slipknot released a new album, The Gray Chapter, in October. The U.S. tour begins in April before heading to Europe in June.
