The current US Slipknot tour is on hold giving Shawn Crahan time to mourn his father, Michael, who died of a heart attack last Tuesday.

It's a nice gesture, although slightly surprising - if we recall our Slipknot lyrics correctly, isn't mourning little more than a bid to try and cover your own inadequacy? Thats what we learn from I Am Hated:

Everybody wants to be so hard
Are you real or a second rate sports card?
They all lost their dad or their wife just died
They never got to go outside - shut up
Nobody gives a fuck
It doesn’t change the fact that you suck

Perhaps The Clown might give some thought to his band's songs as he mourns his father. Because putting on hold singing songs about how pathetic mourning is in order to properly mourn your own loss seem to be having it both ways.

Read the sleeve on the inside of the CD?
