It is with heavy heart that we mourn the passing of drummer extraordinaire, Joey Jordison. Jordison who was a founding member of Slipknot, joined Rob Zombie in 2010 to play drums on Zombie’s live shows and contributed to the special edition version of Hellbilly Deluxe 2 on tracks Theme of an Angry Red Planet, Everything Is Boring, Michael and The Man Who Laughs.

So shocked to hear about the death of our friend and former bandmate Joey. He was a good dude and a monster drummer. We are gonna miss this guy.

Rest In Peace Joey…We had some fun times together. One thing is for sure, this dude loved music at his very core more than most people…and he never stopped making it. 

All my love to his family and friends around the world.
