Ex-Slipknot Percussionist's Lawyer Speaks Out On Lawsuit

The attorney for ex-Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn said that his client was forced to take legal action against his former bandmates because he was unable to get information about a number of Slipknot-related businesses.

Fehn sued vocalist Corey Taylor, percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan, Slipknot manager Robert Shore and six businesses connected to the group on March 13th, claiming the businesses were created the entities without his knowledge and that he hasn't been properly compensated for his years with the group.

Fehn's attorney, Joseph Dunne, said Fehn learned of the other businesses during negotiations about the band's upcoming sixth studio album and accompanying tour. Dunne explained, "He thought everyone was being treated equally. My client really is just hoping to figure out a way to work this out with the people he's worked side by side with for the last 20 years."

Fehn's attorney deflected questions about Fehn's status with the band, hinting that he still wanted to be part of the group. Slipknot, however, has made the split with Fehn official, saying in a statement that "Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot."
