Slipknot star SHAWN 'CLOWN' CRAHAN lives in fear of hearing his wife has died because she suffers from a sever intestinal problem.
The heavy rocker's wife has had 25 per cent of her ileum removed after suffering a rare stomach disease and Crahan reveals she almost dies at least once a year.
The drummer tells rock magazine Revolver, "I'm ready at any time to get a phone call to have to tell my kids that my wife is dead. That's the world we have to live in and my kids are aware of it. They hold on like a tightrope."
