SLIPKNOT DJ Sid Wilson, who has been jumping from rafters, railings and venue pinnacles since the band's inception, has revealed via Facebook that he has injured his foot and will have to abstain from stunts for a little while.

Wilson famously broke both of his heels at the first show of the 2008 edition of the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival in Auburn, Washington and was forced to wear casts on both legs. He apparently jumped off one of the stages in the background of SLIPKNOT's stage set and landed incorrectly. Despite having casts on both legs, Sid vowed to play all shows on the Mayhem tour, even if it meant getting around in a wheelchair.

Asked what his favorite moments were from his many years of plummeting into the crowd, Sid told Loudwire: "Man, I don't know. There's so many. Any venue you go to [where] there's a balcony or some kind of high railing, you can probably pretty much bet that I've jumped off of it."

He continued: "I'll go back to some of these places and see them today and I'm like, 'What the fuck was I thinking?' It's not like I was all hopped up on a bunch of drugs or anything either. This was like coherent Sid Wilson jumping."

So I thought after a day off this would feel better but it seems I haven't seen the worst if it yet. Sorry, but no high...
