Yes, he filed a lawsuit against the band. Yes, he wants to return. Yes, Chris Fehn may be delusional.

After being dismissed from Slipknot earlier this year upon filing a lawsuit against the band, percussionist Chris Fehn recently appeared somewhat optimistic about his return, expressing hope that he will “someday” be reinstated.

Fehn has been pretty absent from social media since February, only really making two Instagram posts since the second month of the year passed. The first was to promote one of his guest appearances on a song from Phil Campbell, and the latest is a father and son pic where the two are all smiles.

In the post, Fehn wrote: “Sorry for the delay in my posts. I think you can all understand. New life. Dad. Loving it!!!” One follower, zacharygarcia5606 commented, “Pls go back to Slipknot,” to which Fehn swiftly replied with a simple, “Someday.”

The short of Fehn’s lawsuit is that he alleged that he was not being properly compensated for his role within Slipknot. He accused the group (while naming Corey Taylor and Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan directly, among other aspects of Slipknot’s affiliated businesses) of hiding money from him.

Taylor publicly responded to these legal accusations, stating that he and the band were “wrongfully accused.”

Fehn was replaced by the mysterious new percussionist who fans lovingly dubbed “Tortilla Man,” due to the member’s mask resembling, well, a cooked tortilla. While the percussionist’s true identity has yet to be publicly revealed, many believe it to be Clown’s Dirty Little Rabbits bandmate, Michael Pfaff.

In recent Slipknot news we recently found a young girl by the name of M Drako, who posts killer metal violin covers.

Her most recent post is a cover of Slipknot’s ‘Unsainted’, which sounds absolutely divine. We’ve never heard ‘Unsainted’ sound so graceful and delicate? M Drako is just something else.

I mean who would have even thought of covering a metal song on the violin?
