    While i wasn't the biggest Slipknot fan, I do love Murderdolls and much of Joeys other work. 

    He was a giant in the industry. He will be missed.

    This one is close to my heart.

    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.

    I'm not slurring my words, I'm talking in cursive

    Huge shock to read it. Loved his style and was one of my major draws to Slipknot.

    Joeys drumming inspired me to pick up on drumming, never really went anywhere with it sadly. gutted I never got to see him live either.

    Rest easy king.

    Were you expecting a picture or something?

    It always feels weird upvoting these posts/threads

    He wasn't on my radar, not really my style...

    But you can't deny the talent or how much of an effect he had on you who have posted here. When a musician goes that influenced you, it stings.

    Super sad to see it. Last I heard he had fought his way back to good health.

    Slipknot was a huge influence on me as I was growing up. My username is a slipknot song that means a lot to me.

    Hopefully he gets a full tribute album like Paul Grey got. Would suck to see them give him one song and sweep him under the rug.

    Lots of details in this video about Joey Jordison's & Slipknot's stems for Before I Forget, amazing performances.
