Slipknot Drummer Joey Jordison To Tour With Korn

Band Photo: Slipknot (?)

SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison has confirmed rumors that he will sit behind the kit for KORN this summer. "I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to perform with bands that have influenced me as a musician over the years," Joey said. "When I first heard KORN they blew me away and I have been a fan ever since. I'm looking forward to playing drums with these guys for the next five months!"

Joey will go straight from tour bus into the studio to continue work on the new SLIPKNOT CD which will surface in 2008.

KORN's management confirmed earier in the month that temporary drummer Terry Bozzio had completed his work on the band's new record and is no longer working with the group. Bozzio, a legendary drummer known for his work with MISSING PERSONS and Frank Zappa, plays on some but not all tracks on the album. Brooks Wackerman of BAD RELIGION played with the band several weeks ago at a youth volunteer show in Los Angeles.

Bozzio replaced founding drummer David Silveria in January, after Silveriaannounced at the end of 2006 that he was taking a "hiatus" from KORN for at least one album and tour.

KORN's eighth studio effort is due this summer. The band will headline the 2007 Family Values tour starting in mid-July, with EVANESCENCE, HELLYEAH, ATREYU, TRIVIUM and FLYLEAF also on the bill. The on-sale date for most of the shows is April 28.

Another overqualified drummer....
I'll bet Godsmacks Tommy Stewart is strolling around Boston with cardboard sign that says "will drum for money". He's a perfect match, Jordison will be yawning with his spare hand covering his mouth throughout the whole set.

Noones jealous..Where are you getting that?

I didn't say he hates(or should hate) Korn, I'm saying he can play circles around anything David Silveria's ever done. He's a vastly superior drummer. It's like a professional athlete standing in for a gradeeschool kid in little league. I don't like most of Slipknots work but Jordison is almost inhumanly good.

^^^ I agree, except I like Slipknot. Joey is definitely one of the best drummers around right now. The drum solo he does on their DVD Disasterpieces is f***ing awesome!!! It's a shame he isn't doing anything good on his own right now, not filling in. Murderdolls was his right? Didn't care for them and that didn't showcase any of his talents anyway

I actually didn't know that he was the guitarist in the band, I thought he was the drummer. The guitars are okay in Murderdolls, not bad. Still his drumming really is what he's best at musically. Early Slipknot I think really showcased his talent.

Just because the drumming on korn's songs are simple that doesnt mean Silveria is a bad drummer, perhaps behind closed doors he can do better, but korn isn't about fast drumming like slipknot, they have a much bigger hip hop influence and thats why the bass and drumming is how it is. Besides Jordison is far from being in the top drummers in modern music, maybe he is good compared to most bands that find their way into mainstream but not compared to say Derek Roddy or Daniel Erlandson. Having said that I havent heard Joey behind closed doors, but his efforts at drumming death metal on the roadrunner all star sessions was not great. The main point is though whoever is better or has the more technical music Joey wants to do it, no one has forced him too, and I doubt he needs money or publicity.

What the f*** are you guys talking about? David is an amazing drummer. Need I remind you he would have in some small way influenced Jordisons playing. Joey plays boring a$$ double pedal sh**e that anyone can play and his solo is full of nothing but doubles and triples(easy,easy,easy!!!). You should check out Korns self titled and life is peachy, the drums are very well thought out and interesting.
ps. I do love Joey but you guys shouldn't badmouth david, he kicks a$$ and has much more talent than the rest of his band!!! See you next album,David.

Wow!! Too many people sh***ing on drummers, "good" or "bad". It's messed up how people react to how others think,at all or or in general. Most "metalHeads" take Metal to seriously, I know it's not just a style of music, It's A Way Of Life! Most people should just calm down! Why do others care so much who drums for who?!?! I would love the offer or even the chance to ask to step in for someone for Korn or slipknot. Bashing a drummer when you can't even chew gum and walk at the time is really very low! Moving four (4) limbs at the same time while keeping time to start off is not easy, lots of time is needed to be able to do so. And nothing is wrong with making money humans need food,water and shelter to live. How or where you get the money to be able to those things really should not matter. People need to live making music is a JOB, it's a fun JOB, but it's still a JOB!
p.s.support metal no matter what sub-gener it is, rap and most other types of music just does not cut it!!

You're right, it's Joey's choice. I respect his choice. But musicians like challenges. If they didn't they wouldn't be in such a competitive field. Korn's drumming can be done by a high school band geek. They could've hired a drumtech who needs the money to live as you say. But, no, they hire the drummer who will sell the most tickets.

Yeah, there are many many more drummers who eclipse Jordison.
Brann Dailor (Mastodon) Dan Carrey (Tool) Gene Hoglan (SYL) Chris Pennie (DEP) and the mighty Martin Lopex (Ex-Opeth) just to start.

Still, Jordison is a leap and bound beyond in creative execution speed and fills. I'm not picking on Silveria, he's quite capable even important but he pales in contrast to Jordison.

It's excessive force, like bringing an Abrams tank to a food fight.

Oh yeah another great drummer is George Kollias from Nile check out his drumming on the Annihilation of the Wicked album. It's so complex and fast it's just f***ing amazing.

I definitely do agree with you and a lot of pepopel would and should agree with you that Slipknot should go back to how they used to sound but it won't happen. And unfortunately their new album whenever it comes out probably will be more commercial, especially since Corey's scream seems to have deteriorated a bit since he got over his alcoholism.

Korn and Slipknot are total sellouts. They not only screwed there sound horribly, but there fans are gay also. Who would want to see them live?

I don't care if you dislike or even hate Slipknot, but they put on a great show. You just have to understand that it is a show.

They do put on a great show and there's a huge energy that they have. Hatebreed is the same way, at least in indoor venues. Outdoor venues a lot of bands aren't that great because the sound usually sucks.

oh man ok first off andrew, SLIPKNOT and KORN fans are some of the best and loyal! and both bands are amazing live! yes their sound has changed but get over it every artists music will change over time. when you try to compare SLIPKNOT and KORN I would say that SLIPKNOT is the more talented band but they cant acheive what KORN has already done.

Bottom line is there are a million drummers superior to Jordison....

but Jordison is still climbing into a highchair by playing with Korn. Halfway through the set he's going to wonder when he can sit at the grownup's table.

Make no mistake, Slipknot are no champions of technical skill but Jordison -is- allowed to push his mental/physical limits, which of course is one of the things I like most about this drummer among others....metal, prog, rock, jazz etc.
