Guitarist was involved in an altercation with his brother
Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson has been rushed to hospital with stab wounds following a knife fight involving his brother.
Thomson (pictured above) and his sibling, Andrew, are reported to have both required medical assistance following a fight. Police confirmed to Billboard that the brothers both sustained serious injuries, with Mick Thomson suffering a stab wound in the back of his head. Neither of the pair’s injuries are considered life-threatening.
The fight took place early yesterday (March 11) morning at Mick Thomson’s home in Clive, Iowa with police stating that the pair were drunk when they arrived on the scene.
Slipknot launched their first full UK tour for more than six years in Sheffield earlier this year (January 16).
The Prepare For Hell Tour was the band’s first run of UK dates with their new touring bass player, British musician Alessandro Venturella. Drummer Joey Jordison, who left Slipknot in 2013, was replaced by Jay Weinberg, son of Max Weinberg, the long-serving drummer in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.
