The new Slipknot member ‘Tortilla Man’ is reportedly multi-instrumentalist Michael Pfaff, and the first ever interview featuring Pfaff with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels from years ago has surfaced, and M. Shawn Crahan from Slipknot is even mentioned! Pfaff doesn’t say much, but he does say the f-word when he finds out it’s not a television interview. Corey Taylor finally called out a child rapist rock singer a few days ago.

Pfaff also wrote on a social media account, “Music is a gift. It is THE BEST!! Email me…hire me…help me provide for my family with music. Holler, Mike Pfaff.”

He also wrote, “I studied tabla with a wonderful teacher whilst I lived in Boston (jerry leake {thanks jerry}), but I am novice at best. I love the sounds and phat beats they can create, but I wanted all to know I didn’t go around saying I am a ‘bad-ass’ tabla player. I respect Hindustani music very much.”

Fans on Reddit uncovered his identity on Monday night, though Corey Taylor had hinted at the new Slipknot member being a big name over the weekend.

Found who i presume is his wife. She is inactive since 2013, BUT she follows 4 accounts and 1 hashtag. 1 of the accounts is Slipknot. The hashtag?? #tortillaman.”

Woodenlung said, “The only two actual people, that his wife follows, also follows a whole bunch of Slipknot and knotfest stuff.

Especially the latter (seems to be either his or her mom) does not look like a slipknot listener… She also follows a bunch of hashtags related to slipknots new member. With all the other evidence in this thread, I really think this is it.”

spiderbat14 chimed in, “The tags his mother follows include #tortillaguy, #slipknotnewmember, #slipknotnewguy and #tortillaman – there’s no way it’s not him :’)”

Pfaff has the same build as ‘Tortilla Man’ and hasn’t performed in the Iowa music scene since Chris Fehn left Slipknot in March. Simon Cowell took a vicious shot at the new Slipknot album We Are Not Your Kind over the weekend.
