Shawn Crahan, a.k.a Slipknot’s ‘Clown,’ injured his arm on stage while performing and had to sit through a couple of the shows in their 2021 tour. He most recently updated his fans and stated that he is in recovery and will be better soon.

Slipknot’s co-founder and percussionist Crahan was on stage with his band when he hit a barrel with a baseball bat very hard for the sake of a show and injured his bicep tendon on his upper arm. On November 12, he went through surgery and has been trying to recover since.

He shared the footage that shows exactly the point it happened and apologized to the fans for not appearing on stage with the band during his recovery. Another update came from the percussionist recently as he posted a photo of his bandaged arm and stated that he is back in Los Angeles. He will soon take the wrap off and reveal his surgery scar, followed by more recovery sessions.

Here is what he stated in the caption to keep his fans up to date:

“Back in LA. Hopefully, tomorrow I get to take this filthy wrap off my bruised cut-up arm. Then onto the rebuild.”

His fans wished him a speedy recovery as they want to see him on stage again. Some people even made remarks about how this unfortunate event will be his battle scar and tried to cheer him up.

A week ago, Slipknot wrapped up their 2021 tour, which gave their fans the excitement they desperately needed after over a year of pandemic restrictions. Their next tour will start in 2022 spring, and meanwhile, they have been in the studio working on a new album. Their recently released single ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ gave the taste of their upcoming album, and their fans are now waiting impatiently for the album announcement.
