Jim Root has posted an update on his recovery after disk replacement surgery

October 6, 2016

After the recent Louder Than Life festival in Louisville Slipknot guitarist Jim Root had to fly to the hospital for disk replacement in his back. To keep his fans informed on his state, Root has posted a photo on Instagram of himself hooked up to an I.V. The guitarist adds that apart from “being a bit sore and spun out from jet lag and Norco’s it’s all good” (see the post below).

Root admits for a while he won’t be as active onstage as he normally is, for the sake of the full recovery: “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…”, reads his Instagram post.

Not the luckiest year on Slipknot’s music path, as we’ve seen so far. Earlier this year some tour dates were postponed after Corey Taylor had to undergo spinal surgery. This time, it’s the band’s guitarist ending up under the knife due to back problems.

Let’s hope Slipknot’s guitarist will have recovered by the band’s next show, Knotfest Mexico, taking place on October 16. After a couple of shows in Latin America, the group will head to New Zealand and Australia and then play a set at Knotfest Japan.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted… a quick update before I disappear again. First of all, many many thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart I appreciate it. 2nd of all… 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. ? this message brought to you by Norco narcotics. See ya…. #neckbreaker #ughlife #knotfest #yermother #sweetfuckinbooties.
