Enlarge Clown and his late daughter, Gabrielle.

Corey Taylor on Clown’s Daughter’s Death: “My Heart Has Broken for My Brother”


Unbearably bad news befall the family of Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn Crahan (better known as Clown) this past weekend, as his youngest daughter, Gabrielle, passed away at just 22 years old. Gabrielle is survived by her siblings Alexandria, Gage, and Simon.

While Crahan issued his own brief statement (reposted through the band’s official accounts), Slipknot’s most visible public figure, Corey Taylor, has now offered some quick public words of condolence as well:

“My heart has broken for my brother. Please keep the Crahan family in your thoughts and love. She will be missed.”

Really, isn’t that all that can be said? “My heart has broken.” The pain Clown and his family must be feeling right now is unimaginable. Everyone at MetalSucks continues to send them all our best.
