Joey Jordison passes away aged 46

Former drummer of Slipknot, Joey Jordison, has passed away aged 46.

As well as drumming for Slipknot from 1995 to 2013, and considered a member of the ‘classic’ line-up, forming Murderdolls with Wednesday 13 and Acey Slade, his more recent bands Scar The Martyr, Vimic, and Sinsaenum – Joey has also worked with Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, OTEP, and famously filled in for Lars Ulrich of Metallica at Download Festival 2004.

A statement from his family was released announcing his passing. It reads:

“Joey’s death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow.

To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart and his love for all things family and music.

The family of Joey have asked that friends, fans and media understandably respect our need for privacy and peace at this incredibly difficult time.

The family will hold a private funeral service and asks the media and public to respect their wishes.”

Below is a compilation by Loudwire of Joey’s best moments as a drummer
