Jackson Guitars have confirmed the news that Mick Thomson from Slipknot will be making an in-store meet-and-greet/signing at Guitarguitar Birmingham on the 23rd of January at 6:00PM. Staff will be handing out flyers to be signed and fans are welcome to bring along any records, merch or gear to be autographed. There’s no need to book tickets; however, as a huge turnout is expected, fans are being asked to get down early and get queued up outside.

Slipknot meet and greets are super rare these days – and even more so in the UK. There are no VIP paid for packages or tickets in sight, this is a ‘for the fans’ first-come-first-serve experiance and organisers are hoping the guitarist will stick around and make sure he sees a lot of people.

So, if you’re a fan of Thomson and you fancy chatting to the man himself about his gear then you know where to be.

Thomson and the rest of Slipknot will return to the UK in August for the inaugral Knotfest UK:


I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
