Corey Taylor Shares Gnarly Post-Knee Surgery Photo; Already Rehearsing with SLIPKNOT

Posted by on May 13, 2019 at 1:28 pm

This is a big week for Slipknot – the band make their live return on Jimmy Kimmel Live this Friday and that means they will most likely be releasing new music, and new masks with the unveiling. Then, a potential wrench in the plans hit last week when Corey Taylor said he needed double knee surgery.

We wondered out loud what this meant for Slipknot plans, but as it turns out, it won't have too much of an affect on their plans as Corey was out of the hospital on the same day and even posted a video this weekend where he made it clear that he plans to fulfill all of his commitments going forward.

To wit, Taylor posted a photo from what looks like Slipknot rehearsals with the caption "Rehearsal hair" and tagging the 'knot in the photo:

Taylor also posted a photo of his knees, "by request" and noted that "Surgery was swell, but here’s to hoping the swelling goes down. See you motherfuckers this weekend."

We are delighted for Corey that everything seems on the up-and-up and are waiting with anticipation for the release of new Slipknot music.
