Slipknot’s Tortilla Man Answered Fan Questions


Yesterday, Slipknot officially revealed the long-argued-about identity of their new percussionist Tortilla Man (who is in fact one Michael Pfaff, who has played with Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan in his band Dirty Little Rabbits). Now, Tortilla Man has answered several fan questions in the Reddit AMA for which is identity was revealed — and yes, his favorite tortilla-based dish is among them.

Here are some of the questions from Tortilla Man’s AMA:

Q: How did you react to the journey reddit & other forms of media had on finding out who you were irl when you were still “Tortilla Man”?

A: It was the best. Watching it all unfold was amazing. The theories, the detectives. amazing.

Q: How scary is it to stand next to Mick when he’s onstage? I imagine extremely.

A: He’s on my team, so it’s pretty empowering.

Q: How hard was it to keep your identity secret when you first joined the band? Were you allowed to tell anyone, or just the band and family?

A: It was pretty hard. These days everybody is on the internet and has a phone….you could tell a person at the grocery store and the next thing you know it’s on the internet. I flew to LA twice before my wife even knew.

Q: After Mr.Fehn left the band, how soon did Clown/The Band come see you to replace him? also, when are you getting a new mask?

A: The Unsainted video happened very soon after I was contacted. It was a quick turnaround and badaboom your life is now the best ever:)

Q: Do you remember the first time someone suggested that you were “tortilla man”?. And how you reacted?

A: It seemed to spawn from the first live stream we did after I joined…it was Rock AM Ring or something…I saw some comments and I honestly thought it was pretty cool….but they could have called me “bonerface” and if they said “fuck! bonerface fucking rocked” then I would be ok with bonerface.

Q: When is the new slipknot single and album coming out?

A: above my pay grade

And the moment you’ve all been waiting for:

Q: Favorite meal that has a tortilla in it that you’ve eaten on the road so far?

A: Im a chicken fajita guy. Flour tortilla

BOOM. There you have it, folks.
