Slipknot rocker Shawn Crahan has tapped his teenage son to serve as his replacement once he retires from the masked band.

The 42-year-old drummer, who is the eldest member of the group, has been thinking about hanging up his mask for several months and the Grammy winner hopes 18-year-old Gage will carry on his legacy.

During an interview with The Pulse of Radio, he says, "My oldest boy, when I do skip (quit), he's gonna take over my slot. He was sitting on the stair in diapers... with (drum) sticks while we were downstairs trying to learn how to be a band.

"So when I leave, it won't be like I died and my son came in and tried to fill my place. I'm gonna bail, but I'm gonna hand over the throne and say, 'Hey, I can't do it anymore. You do it. You're my blood.'"
