This is one crazy guy.

‘Tortilla Man’ is Slipknot’s newest member of the band. His real identity is a mystery, although fans have done some research and believe he is Michael Pfaff, a member of Dirty Little Rabbits, an American alternative rock band.

Lead singer Corey Taylor had a chat with Rock Antennae, and confirmed the fact that Tortilla Man is a bit of a loose unit. He said:

You have to be careful of the new guy – new guy gets crazy. like, the new guy almost got docked some money because he almost broke Jay [Weinberg]’s drums the other night.

He wasn’t lying. 

Tortilla Man “smashed his head into the drums” and cut his face while performing onstage, giving him a large scar in the middle of his forehead.

Taylor added:

He's fucking his face up, which I think is funny...He was bleeding during the show, so he had to pull the mask off during the show and they're bandaging him up. He looked like he's just been to war.

But it sounds like Tortilla Man’s crazy energy is good for the band. Taylor later said in the interview that his “energy is dope” and that “he’s so into it it reminds me to be into it”. 

Sounds like he’s fitting right in.
