2021-08-02 (All-Star Series: Joey Jordison Memorial Edition)

Dearest perverts, sadly, we lost a titanic talent of the metal world last week. As many of you already know, I’m referring to Joey Jordison, formerly and most notably of Slipknot. He was a drummer for them, but he was a musician extraordinaire, playing guitar, bass, drums, percussion (which are technically drums, but can mean other things too) and even doing vocals for his side-project Murderdolls. He actually played guitar for one of his first bands called The Have Nots, too. I would actually recommend checking out havenots.net to read some interesting and not-too-widely-known history about both Joey’s and Paul Gray’s time with that group. They’re actually a punk band, and as cool as they may ever have been, I’m glad that Slipknot ultimately won out between the two.

 

Anyway, did you know he also played drums on Otep’s album House of Secrets? 5 tracks: Warhead, Sepsis, Hooks & Splinters, Nein and Self-Made. Did y’all know he filled in for John Dolmayan from System of a Down? What about the time he filled in for Lars from Metallica? How ‘bout when he played with Ministry at Wacken in 2006? Dude’s been all over the place. He also played/recorded drums for 3 additional bands after his departure from Slipknot called Sinsaenum, VIMIC and Scar The Martyr, and he remixed, produced, arranged, etc. The man’s got credits, lemme tell ya. Joey was a phenomenal musician, and y’all about to find out exactly what I mean.

 

As is the case with all my All-Star Series editions, I do a deep dive into the careers of whichever musician(s) I happen to be spotlighting, and this one is certainly no exception. That said, the only stuff I could find of Joey’s super early band called Modifidious is random shit on YouTube, and I don’t want to subject anyone to stuff that low quality if I can avoid it. I’m curious about it, but I’m a freak. Most people can’t/won’t hang with demo-quality stuff even if they really love a band, and it’s totally understandable. Anyway, again, the group’s called Modifidious if you’re curious as I am. Obviously, the majority of this edition will be Slipknot tracks because that’s where he did all his most memorable work, but I did my best to include the best of everything else I could get my hands on. I know we had a metal edition last week, but I obviously wasn’t anticipating this happening, and I felt compelled to do this. Slipknot’s been one of my favorite bands for over 20 years. They’ve been a huge inspiration for me creatively, and Joey Jordison certainly played an enormous part in making Slipknot what they are today.

 

With all that said, let us yojne the fuck out of all this fucktacular music, and carry his memory however far we may go ourselves, even well on through future generations.
