Joey Jordison (Slipknot/Vimic/Murderdolls) Passes Away At Age 46 RIP

The Iowa heavy metal legends Slipknot will always be part of Insane Clown Posse and Juggalo music history. Slipknot setting up a fake beef plot with Insane Clown Posse to simply reach thousands of viewers on Howard Stern in 1999 was such a genius, hilarious plot! But sadly today, an avalanche of sadness and despair has coldly descended upon the rock/metal community across the world. Joey Jordison, (Slipknot/Vimic/Murderdolls) one of the most talented and gifted drummers of all time, has unfortunately passed away last night in his sleep at age 46. No other details have been released to the public. We here at send our deepest condolences to his entire family, friends, all his music allies, and fans. Stay strong and rock out tonight in Joey Jordison’s honor. RIP

P.S. Close to 5 years ago, our staff member Chad Thomas Carsten interviewed the man who was handpicked by Joey Jordison to be the frontman of the Murderdolls. We’re talking about the mighty Wednesday 13. Here is Wednesday 13 sharing touring memories of Joey Jordison with Chad at the Pub Station in Billings, Montana.

Chad T. Carsten:  What’s your most cherished memory working with Joey Jordison (Slipknot/Vimic/Murderdolls)?
Wednesday 13: That’s a good question. [Pondered on the question for a few minutes]
There was a ton of cool stuff! We did a lot of stuff in a really short time! I literally went from North Carolina to (seriously) playing in Tokyo, Japan in front of thirty thousand people with Guns N’ Roses in a month. Being able to do that kind of stuff/being on tour with Murderdolls/meeting my hero’s like Alice Cooper and him taking us out on tour; there are so many memories. It was just really cool on how he and I wrote together. When we did the record “Woman and Children Last”, we hadn’t seen each other in almost six years. We went into the studio and I sat right in front of his drum set with my guitar and we tracked everything and talked it out, just guitar and drums. We tracked all eighteen of those songs in a day in a half. It was perfect! No arguments, nothing! We laughed the whole time.
When it comes to music-wise, me and that dude can do amazing things. And it’s not just him; it’s a lot of things that factor into why we haven’t done anything since. It’s just unfortunate when that last Murderdolls record happened, Paul Gray (RIP) died right before it came out and that really changed everything. So had that not happened, things could be different. But it was just a really, really bad time when that happened. The first album when it came out we had all the steam going. We were blowing up in England; it was huge! Then the label wanted more Slipknot, so it was no more, we had to take a break. And when you take a break, people forget. And that’s why we had to start all over again. So it’s just unfortunate that the band had all this steam and it got put on hold.
