Ever since my last few years of primary school and early years of high school, Joey Jordison played a massive role in my desire to learn and play the drums. I would say he is the reason I started. My parents even bought me a drum kit and snare drum based on Joeys kit.
I never got a chance to see him perform live as he had left Slipknot by the time I saw them live. But I kept my hope that he would one day come to New Zealand with one of the other groups he was a member of (Murderdolls, Vimic, Sinsaenum etc). Unfortunately this also didn’t happen.
Waking up this morning and my wife telling me that Joey Jordison had passed away was a major shock and incredibly upsetting.
Rest easy #1. You always have been and always will be my inspiration.
