Slipknot’s Clown will eat the music industry

Posted by on June 2, 2015

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Shawn “Clown” Crahan of Slipknot explains the workings of music industry in his world. He explains the band getting a, “little bit more dangerous,” is due to the, “everyday, monotonous fucking bullshit in this industry.”

Says Crahan in the interview,

“Everybody wants to make money off of Slipknot, including (Rolling Stone Magazine). So I think our danger is to remind you while you’re trying to get paid that there’s someone like me standing to your right or left who wants to systematically destroy you to the core and have you be a believer. I understand you can’t have left without right, up without down, so on and so forth. However, even the left-brainers – I call them “fancy shoes,” “smart shoes,” because you can always tell a corporate fucking tool by his shoes – you’re just a fucking target.”

Crahan and his fellow band of “right-brainers” depart for Europe in a few days to play an 11-date European tour. In late July they’ll return to the road here in the US with Lamb of God, Bullet For My Valentine, and Motionless In White.
