Slipknot drummer SHAWN 'CLOWN' CRAHAN almost killed himself during an Ozzfest tour in 1999 after plunging headfirst into a water container.

The rocker pushed himself to the limit during the hedonistic tour and counts himself lucky to have survived it.

He says, "There were a couple of times I came close to death. There was one time on Ozzfest that I jumped into a garbage can headfirst and I didn't realise it was half-full of water.

"I got stuck in that thing for about 35 seconds and I remember thinking, 'You've done it, you f**king went somewhere you shouldn't have gone and now it's going to get you.' It was serious."
