Corey Taylor says that Slipknot’s new, as-yet-unnamed percussionist has been a boost for their live shows.
The person — dubbed “Tortilla Man” by fans because of the mask he or she wears on stage — replaced Chris Fehn, who’s involved in a lawsuit with the band. Taylor was asked by Zane Lowe of Beats One what might make this mystery person an official member, and he replied, “You’ve got to wear the tortilla on your face first of all, and the audience has to figure out who you are. Tortilla face. He’s doing great. He’s a great dude and is killing it, man. It’s kind of cool. It’s brought this whole new energy to everybody as well. So it’s a lot of fun to watch him.”
Fans can see Corey, “Tortilla Man” and the rest of Slipknot Thursday, in Lincoln, Nebraska.
