Slipknot was down a member during the band’s headlining set at Florida’s Welcome to Rockville festival Thursday night.

Percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan missed the performance because he was recovering from surgery to repair his torn bicep tendon.

Clown apparently suffered the injury during the Knot’s show at Knotfest Los Angeles last week. In video posted to his Instagram, Crahan says you can “pinpoint the exact frame” where he “completely tore the bicep tendon from the radial tuberosity with proximal retraction, proximal to the coronoid fossa of the humerus.”

“You may have realized I was not on stage in Florida with my brothers and my culture tonight,” Clown wrote in the caption. “For this fact I am saddened.”

The good news is that the surgery was a success, and Crahan’s currently “recovering peacefully.”

“I can’t express how happy and blessed I am to have been able to come back to touring after all that we as a community have been through the last couple years,” he wrote. “And I promise we will see you all very soon.”
