Joey Jordison has been talking this week about his battle with a terrible disease called, transverse myelitis, a form of multiple sclerosis, which affects your nervous system, and in turn prevented Jordison from drumming. Fans were in the dark for years as to why he was ‘sacked’ from the band in 2013, before Jordison finally opened up at the recent Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. He revealed that during his last days in Slipknot, he literally had to be carried to the stage because of the terrible ailment.
Metal Hammer spoke to Jordison about a potential Slipknot reunion:
“Honestly, I’m not trying to be dramatic, but if that was brought up, what I’d want to do would be to get together. I’d want to see them, just hug it out and feel that energy that we had when we were fucking young and hungry and all that shit. They’re my brothers. We’d hug and talk and do shit like we used to do. We used to sit up all night along planning this shit and what we wanted to do. So that’s how I’d wanna do it. It’d have to be in person. If it happened, that would be f*cking awesome, but only time will tell.”
Let’s hope that one day that they can get back together or at least provide Jordison with some closure, but until then Joey has his hands full with two other projects, Vimic and Sinsaenum.
