Ow, that's got to hurt, although to be honest we're finding it hard to care, as Slipknot guitarist Jim Root snapped his wrist just before the band were due to play Cincinnati.

Surpisingly, the band didn't have to cancel the gig, although they did have a bit of a struggle finding someone to fill Jim's shoes. There were no shortage of people who can play a Slipknot tune on the guitar, it's just difficult finding someone who would want to be that close to the rest of the band for the duration of a gig.

Doctors have set Root's wrist in plaster, and say that'll stop him playing for at least six weeks. They're open to offers for leaving it on longer.
