SLIPKNOT DJ Talks About Onstage Injury; Video Posted Online

On the first date of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival on July 9 in Seattle, Washington — the first SLIPKNOT show in two-and-half years — DJ Sid Wilson reportedly leapt from a riser stationed at the back of the stage and landed hard, breaking both his heels. The UK branch of Roadrunner Records grabbed him for a couple of minutes in Texas to chat with him and find out what the hell happened. Check out the video interview on

"[Sid] had to take his cast off last night, and I'm telling you, I couldn't even look at his feet," SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan told MTV News in a recent interview. "Both his feet were black and blue — and deep. The bruises go, like, 2 inches in. But he's up there every night, no problem. He's so out of his mind, he's got a big bruise on his face because he's not used to slamming his head in a wheelchair. So he's got a huge bruise on his face from smacking his head into his tables. It never ends. You think you're out of it, and then you're back in, on some other painful level. . . Sid was like, 'I broke my feet, but I can't miss a show, so here I am, in this wheelchair.' The good thing is, he now knows he's not 25 anymore."
