Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has taken to Facebook to announce that his departure from Slipknot was not voluntary. To paraphrase his statement, which you can read below, he announces that he did not leave but implies that he was forced out for reasons he cannot go into.
You can read Jordison’s statement here: “I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot. I want to make it very clear that I DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans. This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you. While there is much I would like to say, I must remain silent to further details at this time. I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year.”
