A representative for the drummer’s family has confirmed the sad news, revealing the rocker passed away in his sleep on Monday.
“Joey’s death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow,” a statement reads. “To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart, and his love for all things family and music…

“The family of Joey have asked that friends, fans, and media understandably respect our need for privacy and peace at this incredibly difficult time.”

Jordison left Slipknot in 2013 and became the guitarist for punk band Murderdolls.

What was it, smack?

It's always that with the metal heads.

I was never much into Slipknot, too many drummers for my liking...but even I would have to say they were capable of a good noise and they were pretty influential.

Never good when people die young.

Just read about the unfortunate news, and it just gave me flashbacks of how I remember Slipknot used to be popular in high school years. They made wearing masks with makeup really worth it.

If you guys need me, I’m replaying this album later this week:

He had transverse myelitis, which is a spinal problem similar to MS, and he died in his sleep, so people are speculating it was related to that illness or something along those lines,

Oh...an unfortunate thing to suffer from, makes his career doubly impressive though.

He had Multiple Sclerosis. Not saying he wasn't taking drugs, he would have been in a lot of pain, but I think the odds are the disease finished him off - the reason he switched to guitar/vocals more was because the MS fucked up his left leg and he couldn't play like he used to.

Big F for the dude, it's no exaggeration to say his drumming on those early Slipknot albums kept technical skill in metal at a time when skill wasn't fashionable.
