SLIPKNOT Parts Ways With Drummer JOEY JORDISON

Slipknot released the following press release:

 

"To our Maggots and fans around the world,

 

"It is with great pain but quiet respect that, for personal reasons, Joey Jordison and SLIPKNOT are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds.

 

"We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future.

 

"It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of SLIPKNOT.

 

"Thank you, The 'KNOT"

HaVoC - Thats crazy!! I remember when they played at Cricket here, halfway thru the show, they have Joey wheel himself up to the front of the stage... He had jumped off something on the stage at a previous show, and broke both legs. But still came to AZ to rock it, wheel chair and all!!

   

EdgarLozano - Sucks!!! Joey was a driving force in Slipknot...And by the way HaVoC, it was Sid, not Joey who was in the wheelchair. I know this. Because I was in the Pit that night at Mayhem!  

tbeeler23 - ^^^Wrong that was Sid with both ankles broken from jumping off part of the stage at a previous show.  

RobertOrtega - He left so he can persue Scar the Martyr, and with the direction that Slipknot is heading I don't blame him.  Slipknot is getting so weak and mainstream, stop singing so much Corey!  I swear, Slipknot is starting to sound like Stone Sour and Stone Sour is starting to sound like Slipknot.  

slipknotbab666 - will support each individual... its the music we all stand for! for better or worst.

\,,/ SLIPKNOT will be missed on TOUR \,,/

esp w/o JORDISON :/

...moving on. have an awesome day TROOPS.
