Drummer Joey Jordison Leaves his long term position in Slipknot

It’s been confirmed. Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has left the band.

The band have taken down their websites front page and left a brief message to their fans about the drummers departure.

Slipknot’s Official Statement

The statement reads: “To our Maggots and fans around the world. It is with great pain but quiet respect, that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways. We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future. It is our love for all of you, as well as for the music we create, that spurs us to continue on and move forward with our plans for releasing new material in the next year. We hope that all of you will come to understand this, and we appreciate your continued support while we plan the next phase of the future of Slipknot. Thank you, The ‘Knot.”

The End Of Slipknot

Several other sites have posted the news about Joey Jordison leaving his long time position in Slipknot already. So we’ll try to add more to the conversation than just the statement. But at this stage of the game all we have is speculation and not very many answers. So what do you think guys? What do you believe the reasons for Joey leaving Slipknot are? Was he just fed up of making music? Did he get bored of Slipknot. Do you think there was a personal conflict between him and the rest of the band?

Now that this paradime shift has occurred, what do you think is left for Slipknot? With Grey’s Death and Joey’s Departure is there much of a future left for them? Do you think this might be the end of Slipknot? Or do you think they will carry on despite such iconic members of their band no longer being part of the fold? If you’re a Slipknot fan how do you feel about what has happened? If they do carry on who do you think they’ll choose to replace him? As I said a lot of questions and not many answers, maybe you can help fill in the blanks.

In honour of Slipknot and this yet again sad day in metal music we’ve added my first experience of slipknot from early 2000. Wait and bleed. Enjoy!

Deftones Former Bass Player Chi Cheng: Rest In Peace (1970-2013)

April 14th, 2013 by
Chi Cheng Deftones Bass Player

Chi Cheng Rest In Peace You Will Be Missed

Moments ago, I read the devastating news that Chi Cheng former Deftones bass player passed away. Deftones were one of the very first metal bands I ever heard, I didn’t even really understand what metal was at the time, I was a skater punk, I just knew that was I was hearing for the first time was awesome and that I wanted more. So in a sense Deftones took away my metal virginity. They are truly one of my favourite bands of all time, and always will be. That is why I find the news of Chi Cheng’s death very upsetting. I knew that he was no longer playing bass for Deftones after his tragic car accident, but it never quite hits you how bad an accident is/was until something like this happens. Looking through the photos and seeing him in hospital left a sense of feeling hollow inside. Mine and the rest of Soul Sanctuary’s thoughts are with his friends and family. I’m sure the guys in Deftones are having a very hard time at the moment. If Chi Cheng had any impact on your life through the music of the Deftones, go let the band know that your thoughts are with them too.

Rest in Peace Chi.

You will be missed.

Update: The follwing message was taken from www.oneloveforchi.com

“Our dearest Family,

This is the hardest thing to write to you. Your love and heart and devotion to Chi was unconditional and amazing. I know that you will always remember him as a giant of a man on stage with a heart for every one of you. He was taken to the emegency [sic] room and at 3 am today his heart just suddenly stopped. He left this world with me singing songs he liked in his ear.

He fought the good fight.You stood by him sending love daily. He knew that he was very loved and never alone. I will write more later. I will be going through the oneloveforchi and any other information may not be reliable. If you have any stories or messages to share please send them to the onelove site. Please hold Mae and Ming and the siblings and especially Chi’s son, Gabriel in your prayers. It is so hard to let go.

With great love and “Much Respect!” Mom J (and Chi)”
