Joey Jordison slammed Slipknot for “firing him over email,” calling him “cowardly.”
JOEY JORDISON, 46, passed away this week. Before being fired by Slipknot, the drummer built a name for himself in the metal band. Despite his desire to rejoin the gang, he called the conduct “cowardly.”
Jordison, 46, was discovered deceased at his home last week. After creating Slipknot and increasing in prominence tremendously, the drummer became an iconic component of the metal scene. Murderdolls, Scar the Martyr, and Vimic were all formed by the musician over the years. According to reports, the drummer “left” the band in 2014 for “personal reasons.”
“It is with great grief but quiet respect that Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways for personal reasons,” said a statement on the Slipknot website.
“We all wish Joey the best of luck in his future endeavors. We appreciate that many of you may be curious about how and why this happened, and we will do our best to answer these questions as soon as possible.”
“It is our love for all of you, as well as the music we make, that motivates us to keep going and press through with our plans to release new material in the coming year,” the band added.
“We hope that everyone understands this, and we appreciate your continued support as we plan the next phase of Slipknot’s future.”
Slipknot went on to hire new drummer Jay Weinberg to take his position.
Later, Jordison stated that the band’s assertions were untrue.
Years later, Jordison stated via email that he was sacked from the band, which he later condemned.
“No band meeting?” he inquired. None. Is there anything from the top? There isn’t anything. All I received was a stupid f*****g email informing me that I had been kicked out of the band that I had worked so hard to f*****g form.

“They got confused by my health difficulties, and clearly even I didn’t know what it was at first,” the drummer continued, explaining his side of the story. They mistook me for someone who was f****d up on drugs, which I wasn’t.”
“I’ve been through so many things with those men, and I adore them,” Jordison continued. What’s upsetting is the “Brinkwire Summary News.”
