Slipknot fans who attend next month's Knotfest event will be able to take a trip through the band's history. According to Billboard.com, percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan revealed that there will be a memorabilia museum on the festival grounds that will feature “costumes, masks, stage gear and artwork” that spans the band’s entire career. Crahan added that the memorabilia exhibit will probably not be a part of their upcoming tours.
"Less is more; we'll do these two and then see," says Crahan. "We're not looking into the future of what it could be. We just want to bring things that people enjoy that are different than the other festivals that are going on. We're looking to have a good time."
Crahan noted that the band will “take some time off” after Knotfest to write and record their fifth studio album. He added that despite the fact Slipknot bassist Paul Gray died in 2010, he'll always be a part of the band.
"We're moving forward, but [Gray’s] leading the pack,” notes Crahan. “There are only nine members, and there will only be nine members [of Slipknot]. Paul Gray will always be part of that nine. We'll always be representing. He will be there 'til the end of time."
Crahan further explains that although guitarist and Slipknot founding member Donnie Steele is filling in for Gray during their current Rockstar Mayhem Festival dates, a permanent choice for the position has yet to be discussed. "I don't have to think about a new bass player right now because it's not even remotely time to even think about that," explains Crahan. "My brother's been gone for two years, and it isn't any easier than it was the first day it happened."
