Corey Taylor surprised fans when he revealed he was having double knee surgery last Friday (May 10), but the procedures apparently won’t get in the way of Taylor’s upcoming performances with Slipknot.
Taylor shared the image below of his two swollen knees along with the caption, “By Request. Surgery was swell, but here’s to hoping the swelling goes down. See you motherf-ckers this weekend. #youcantkillme #cuzimalready#insideyou”
Before that photo, he released a quick video where he said, “Just got out of surgery. Doctors said everything was great. Just cleaned up a bunch of stuff in there and I will be back on stage in no time. So, I’ll see everyone on Kimmel, I’ll see everyone on the 19th at Garden Grove and can’t wait. Thank you to everybody for their well-wishes and everything and we’ll see you soon.”
Taylor and Slipknot are scheduled to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday (May 17), and from the sounds of it, those plans won’t be changing.
