Metal Hammer has released an excerpt of a recent interview with former SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison where he recalls the “hurtful” way he was dismissed – in a “stupid f**king email.”
Jordison says: “No band meeting? None. Anything from management? No, nothing. All I got was a stupid f**king email saying I was out of the band that I busted my ass my whole life to f**king create.”
“That’s exactly what happened and it was hurtful. I didn’t deserve that s**t after what I’d done and everything I’d been through.”
Despite his complaints over how he was fired, Jordison insists he still loves the guys in SLIPKNOT:
“They got confused about my health issues and obviously even I didn’t know what it was at first. They thought I was f**ked up on drugs, which I wasn’t at all.
“I’ve been through so many things with those guys and I love them very much. What’s hurtful is the way it went down was not f**king right.
“That’s all I want to say. They way they did it was f**king cowardly. It was f**ked up.”
During his attendance at Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, Jordison revealed that he has been fighting transverse myelitis, an inflammatory disorder that temporarily prevented him of the ability to play drums.
