So, Slipknot guitarist Mick Thomson got drunk, got into an altercation with his brother, and what ensued resulted in him being stabbed in the head.

Which is definitely quite a night out. Specifics of the fracas are not known, though both brothers were injured, and emergency services thought it best to drive each brother to hospital in a separate ambulance. Possibly to stop other stabbing wounds being inflicted.

I’m being a little bit flippant here because we’re assured neither brother’s injuries are life-threatening. I hope that’s true. Seemingly confirming that Thomson was not so badly injured as “stabbed in the head” might suggest, the band’s tour manager has told news channel KCCI that the incident won’t affect Sliptknot’s upcoming North American tour and European festival bookings, the former of which kicks off next month.
