December 3, 2013, 3 years ago
STONE SOUR have announced that with an impending SLIPKNOT album on the horizon, guitarist Jim Root will not be touring with Stone Sour this winter.
Says the band: "Everyone involved is okay with the decision and our mutual friend Christian Martucci will be filling in on guitar. It was a difficult decision, but as the fans have wanted another Stone Sour tour and Jim had responsibilities to the writing process with Slipknot, we feel this is the best decision where everyone wins."
