Exciting news for Slipknot fans today. Internet detectives may may have uncovered who the mysterious Tortilla Man is.
Last year, Tortilla Man joined the masked metal band after the departure of their then-percussionist Chris Fehn. Since then, Slipknot fans have been diligently trying to work out who the man sporting the tortilla is.
Well, a Slovenian tourist Facebook page may have cracked the case. They posted a series of photos on Facebook with the caption, “Postojna Cave hosted its very first Grammy winners: we had a visit from three members of the famous American heavy metal band Slipknot.”
In one of the photos, you can see Jay Weinberg, Shawn “Clown” Crahan, and a guy with the same build as Tortilla Man, who happens to also look like Michael Pfaff.
Last year, rumours speculated that Tortilla Man might be Michael Pfaff. It was driven by the fact that Pfaff had performed in the band Dirty Little Rabbits before, which is a side project of Shawn “Clown” Crahan’s.
Slipknot are yet to respond to the new reveal. NME reports that last year Clown said in an interview regarding Tortilla Man, “The position you may or may not be talking about is nobody’s fucking business.”
