Following on from the news at the end of last year that long time drummer of Slipknot, Joey Jordison, had unexpectedly quit the band the drummer took to Facebook today to post this message.
“To my fans, friends, and associates…
I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumours and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year.
We’re sure we’ll have plenty more to report on this over the next coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled. Either way we don’t know what to make of this just yet.
