Slipknot Guitarist Stabbed In The Head During Fight With Brother

Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson has reportedly been stabbed in the back of the head after a fight with his brother, Andrew Thomson.

As reported by Iowa news outlet KCCI, police were called to a domestic altercation early Wednesday morning local time.

According to the report, police say a brawl between Mick and his 35-year-old brother, Andrew Thomson, had “spilled” out into the front yard of an Iowa home.

Police also allege both appeared to be intoxicated, and both had injuries consistent with a fight.

The guitarist was found with a stab wound in the back of his head and both Thomsons were taken to hospital in separate ambulances to be treated for non life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been laid and it is not yet understood how the fight started.

Slipknot’s lead-singer Corey Taylor quickly picked up on the news, tweeting, “In regards to the story about Mick, I’m doing the best I can to find out if he’s alright. I’ll get back to you later.”

He followed up shortly after, tweeting, “Mick Update: from what I’ve heard he’s okay. We’re sendig him all your thoughts. Thank you for that.”

Slipknot were just in Australia, headlining Soundwave Festival 2015 in support of their 2014 album .5: The Gray Chapter.
