Ozzy Osbourne Reacts To Terrible Slipknot Announcement


Ozzy Osbourne commented on the death of Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan’s 22-year old daughter Gabrielle through his Ozzfest Instagram account. He wrote, “We are so sorry for your loss 😢🙏” Other big names like Corey Taylor have also sent their condolences. Taylor tweeted, “My heart has broken for my brother. Please keep the Crahan family in your thoughts and love. She will be missed.”

Crahan discussed his bond with his family in a 2001 Baltimore Sun interview, saying he liked bouncing creative ideas off his at the time young children.

The group’s constant touring, outrageous antics and the support of A.J. Soprano helped turn Slipknot’s self-titled 1999 debut on Roadrunner Records into a multi-platinum hit.

The new Iowa should get a boost from the coming remake of Rollerball, in which the band gets bloodthirsty fans in the mood for gruesome action.

If parents are worried about how listening to Slipknot might affect their kids, No. 6 has some advice. After all, the 31-year-old has three small children of his own.

“I always run Slipknot stuff through them, because a child looks at everything with eyes that are brand new,” he says. “If I get a new mask, I’ll show it to them, and I vibe off what they say. But I keep a lot from them because they’re young.”

On the eve of the album’s release, No. 6 already had plans to celebrate. After a two-year wait, he was excited that his fans would have something new to contemplate while society continues to corrode.

“At midnight, I am playing the album in its entirety from beginning to end,” he says. “And I’ll be psyched to know that hungry maggots all over the world are being fed.”
