Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Speaks On Joey Jordison’s Passing: “It’s a Damn Tragedy”


Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has spoken on the July 26th, 2021 passing of the band’s former drummer and founding member, Joey Jordison. During an appearance this past Tuesday, September 21st on SiriusXM‘s ‘Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk‘, Taylor spoke of losing his former bandmate:

“It’s been tough, man. Our first concern was obviously his family, so we reached out immediately to make sure that they were okay, to let them know if they needed anything from us, they could absolutely ask.”

It’s a damn tragedy. He was way too young, and he was way too talented to lose him like this.

I know a lot of people wonder about the circumstances that led to him not being in the band anymore, and it’s, like, we’re not gonna talk about that, because I’d rather talk about his legacy, which is that he helped create this band that we all have fought to keep out there and keep going.

Just the fact that he’s not here now, it’s still — I still can’t believe it.”

Jordison performed with Slipknot up until his 2013 exit from the band. He was 46-years-old at the time of his death.
