Even the most hardcore, extreme, heavy metal rockers have a softer side and such is the case for former Slipknot member Chris Fehn who took to social media via Instagram to tweet about this touching moment in a particular college football game. This Slipknot member confirmed the real reason for his departure recently.
During the end of the quarter of a recent Iowa Hawkeyes game, the camera panned to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital which is within extremely close proximity of the field. A Slipknot member recently revealed what really killed Prince.
So much in fact that the hospital offers panoramic views on its top floor so the children can watch on game day. This caught the attention of Fehn who posted about it and mentioned how much it makes him tear up. You can read his post below. A Slipknot member took a brutal shot at Ghost a few days ago.
If you’ve never seen what goes on at the end of the quarter at an Iowa football game, you need to check it out. I tear up every time!! So powerful
In other news regarding Slipknot, fans took to the subreddit of the group to discuss the vintage Slipknot track “Liberate”, off of the band’s 1999 self-titled album and it’s legacy.
Ciilk wrote: ” Liberate! Bananas!! No facts from me on this one, just thoughts. I’ve always liked this song, but it’s always been a forgettable one for me. I don’t mind skipping this one if it comes on. When performed live, Chris is usually killing it on the garbage in, garbage out a verse. Clown sounds like he’s throwing up when he does backup screams at Hairy Mary’s. Disasterpieces is so damn hype, especially at the start with the shots of the crowd jumping. I’m not a fan of Corey’s vocals on 9.0 Live, but Paul sounds great.”
PentexRX8 replied: “I think this is an underrated song from this album. The “liberate my madness” at around 1:00 has a deranged sound to it. I always envisioned Corey kind of spinning his eyes and head singing it before screaming “Liberate!” It’s one of my favorite 10-second clips from any Slipknot song.”
