SLIPKNOT Drummer To Launch Solo Project

Post by reneesmith on Thu Mar 01, 2012 4:39 pm

News.com.au recently conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

On receiving odd gifts from fans:

Jordison: "I had a gift given to me from a young lady when I was touring with (ROB) ZOMBIE
and I was like, 'OK, well, thank you' and I took it back and I opened
it up and it had like a weird smell. But it's not what you think what it
was, well, it was definitely odd. I used to work in funeral homes, that
was my family's business for a long time, so it didn't spook me too
much but I was wondering where this person got this from. [Basically, it
was a whole person's arm.] It wasn't like an actual arm, just the
bones. It was odd, but hey ..."

On touring the world and
releasing four albums while dealing with the ongoing conflict that
inevitably comes with a band of nine members:

Jordison: "I think it takes a certain type of person to take on such a vigorous touring schedule especially with a band like SLIPKNOT.
We're not like a normal band; there's nine of us, the music is not easy
to play, the way we perform with such energy really takes its toll on
your body and then you've got masks and coveralls and blowing the stage
up every other night on tour it does take a toll."

On the death of SLIPKNOT bassist, founding member and his best friend Paul Gray in 2010:

Jordison: "It's so tragic and it's horrible, but life has to go on and the last thing (Paul) would ever want is for us to throw in the towel. I miss my friend very, very much and no matter what he'll still be on every SLIPKNOT
record, spiritually. And we have a lot that we've written together that
hasn't seen the light of day yet, some monster riffs. I will miss him
forever but you can't sit and wallow and make excuses for not continuing
SLIPKNOT."

On SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor's ambivalent stance towards making a new album without Gray:

Jordison: "I've been in and out of the studio for about six months now that's on the SLIPKNOT record and also on some solo stuff as well. He (Taylor) does want to keep doing it."

On his solo project:

Jordison:
"Yeah, I'm gonna be forming a band in the near future with a lot of the
material I've been writing lately. I don't want to release too much but
I have been in the studio and I think people will be pretty surprised
at what I come up with. It's heavy! But (SLIPKNOT) is all I care about right now. We are one of a kind, for sure. No one will ever be like us."

I never cared much for Slipknot, although, I do enjoy bumping a few songs every now and then.

You should listen to some of their older tracks.
There was some old school thrash style riffs there.

Well, I'll check those old albums out I guess.

I'm not too keen on them either.

But I guess their massive fanbase doesn't lie, they made it.

I think it's good that he is expanding his creativity.
