Michael Pfaff, also known as New Guy or Tortilla Man, is Slipknot's newest member. He replaced Chris Fehn, who was fired from the band in March 2019.

Early life Edit

He was known for being the keyboard player for Shawn Crahan's other band Dirty Little Rabbits before joining Slipknot with the two being introduced to each other by DJ Sid Wilson.

Slipknot Edit

After long time percussionist Chris Fehn was fired from the band, Michael was brought in to replace him, the exact details of him joining are unknown of this time but it can be known that he joined due to his contacts with Shawn and Sid.

Like other members Jay Weinberg and Alex Venturella his identity was kept a secret due to him only being a touring member of this time. He was nicknamed Tortilla Man by fans due to his mask looking similar to a tortilla.

However, fans on the website Reddit were able to identify him as Michael Pfaff due to the way he moves on stage, his height, and due to him being bald.

Trivia Edit

  • His mask has been through several changes with holes being added to each side of the head and the neck portion being removed.
  • Fans complained about the sound of Michael's vocals during early 2019 performances but in 2020 fans have noticed an improvement on his vocals, especially during "Nero Forte".
