Slipknot Made Nothing From Millions in CD Sales?

(antiMusic) Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan made a pretty shocking statement in an interview with Radio Iowa. Slipknot has two platinum and one double platinum album to their credit, which means that they have sold at least 4 million CDs in the U.S. but Clown claims he never made a dollar from those sales. No wonder bands appear bitter after they leave Roadrunner (Slipknot's label).

According to Blabbermouth, Crahan said, "I'll just be honest. I've never made a dollar on a record. We make our money on the road." Crahan's band plays a lot of shows in Europe where the festival scene appears to be much more vibrant.

"I think America needs to look toward Europe and see what they're doing because over there they all get crazy and they need to have festivals and they just go and they take, like, weeks off and everybody it doesn't matter if it's your boss or your mom or whatever it's festival time," Crahan said. - read more from the interview
