Slipknot co-founder Donnie Steele, who played guitar in the band during 1995 and 1996, and then joined them on bass between 2011 and 2014 after Paul Gray’s death, voiced his opinion on the recent lawsuit filed against the band by longtime percussionist Chris Fehn.
As reported, Fehn decided to take his bandmates to court for “shady business dealings,” with reports saying the musician is claiming he had “recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other Slipknot affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.”
