Slipknot’s Mick Thomson Stabbed in Knife Fight With Brother


Des Moines, Iowa television station KCCI reports that Mickael Gordon Thomson — the musician better known as Mick Thomson of SLIPKNOT — and his brother Andrew were injured in an early Wednesday morning (March 11) knife fight in the guitarist’s front yard.

According to a police news release, the altercation started inside Mickael‘s home in Clive, Iowa and spilled into the front yard about 4:25 a.m., where it became physical.

When officers arrived, the two men appeared to be intoxicated and sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries, with the 41-year-old Mickael suffering a stab wound to the back of his head.

The brothers were transported in separate ambulances to the hospital and no charges had been filed against either sibling at press time. It is not known how Thomson’s injury will affect SLIPKNOT going forward, though the band is currently on a break from the road.

SLIPKNOT have been touring in support of their “.5: The Gray Chapter” album and will resume their touring April 25 at the Fort Rock Festival in Fort Myers, Fla. The spring is filled with festival appearances as the band is also booked for Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion and Rock on the Range.
