Slipknot Legal Issues Update

Photo Credit: Adam Bielawski / PRPhotos.comThe latest blow in the legal tussle between Slipknot and former percussionist Chris Fehn has the band’s business manager claiming that Fehn was never a full member.

Rock Feed obtained an affidavit filed in the case by lawyers for Robert Shore that makes the case that while “Fehn performed with Slipknot and received a fee for doing so, he is not a shareholder, owner or member of any business entity he names as a defendant in this action.”

Shore described Shawn Crahan and Corey Taylor as “founding members” of the band and that the “remaining defendants are entities through which the band’s business is or was conducted.”

Fehn filed suit in March against Crahan and Taylor claiming that he had been told that all the band’s income was being funneled through one company but he discovered several other Slipknot-related entities where other members were making more cash.

The affidavit was part of a filing to get Fehn’s lawsuit tossed.
