Slipknot's Jim Root Underwent Surgery 2016 In Review


Slipknot guitarist Jim Root revealed in a social media post in early October that he was recovering from surgery to replace a disc in his back following the band's performance at the Louder Than Life festival the previous weekend.

He posted a Instagram photo that showed him hooked up to an I.V. and captioned the image, "Seems as if fractured vertebrae and hemorrhaged disks are an occupational hazard for metal bands. So. Early in the morning after Louder Than Life in Louisville I flew out for disk replacement surgery.

"Had the procedure this morning and other than being a bit sore and spun out from jet lag and Norco's it's all good. Although I won't be as 'mobile' onstage as before I'm looking very forward to the upcoming Knotfest shows and places we'll be going in between…

"And lastly. That wasn't quick. I spent way too much time typing all this out and most of you guys will lose interest and probably not even read the entire thing! Dicks." See the photo here.
