Slipknot singer Corey Taylor was asked in an interview with Trunk Nation if anyone online had guessed correctly at the identity of the band’s new ninth member, who fans have nicknamed “Tortilla Man.” Taylor replied, “I’ve seen a couple of things, and none of ’em have been right so far. I’m loving it, dude.” One Reddit user posted an extensive theory online last week that the band’s new percussionist was Michael Pfaff a multi-instrumentalist who had worked on a previous project with Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan. On whether the band will keep the identity of “Tortilla Man” a mystery, Taylor said, “Even if somebody gets it right, we’re not gonna confirm it. It’s one of those things. For us, it’s more about getting the band out there. Because, to be honest, the one thing that kind of reminded us that the band is more important is that even after the album came out, people were still into the band no matter who was in it.”
