Joey Jordison, the founding Slipknot drummer has passed away at the age of 46

Much like the passing of Chester Bennington, this has hit me hard. Slipknot has been a huge part of my metal discography, and Joey was an inspiration for me. His drumming abilities were incredible, and I always remember his drum solos played live on a twisting platform.

His playing style was unique, and brutal, and you knew he loved his craft. He seemed like an awesome guy, and I think anyone would have been lucky to meet him. I certainly wish I could have done.

Joey Jordison maybe gone, but he is certainly never forgotten. There will always be a place in our hearts for him, and I will be going through early Slipknot and Murder Dolls music to remember him and his abilities.

If you need a playlist with his best of material, then I have found a Spotify playlist you might enjoy. RIP Joey, you will forever be in our hearts.
