    RIP Joey Jordison

    Damn. At 46.

    The report has his family saying he passed peacefully in his sleep of natural causes. I find that ingenuous, but, still, RIP

    Woah. Way too young. RIP.

        Can't say I am really a Slipknot fan. But they had some killer songs and I heard nothing but good things about him.



        God be with his family, friend's and fans.

        Apparently he had some serious health conditions. Hence why he left Slipknot.

          Natural causes, at 46? That doesn't sound right.

          Regardless, not a Slipknot fan, but he was definitely a talented drummer, and sad to hear when someone dies young.

            Legendary drummer. Not a lot of mainstream drummers bordering on extreme drummer kick drum BPMs, and he would do it with nearly full leg strokes which is inhuman.

              RIP.​​​​​

              If it was a brain anyeurism it's quite possible. A coworker died of one before he was 19 or 20.

                Damn, that's 2 members that defected from Anal Blast to Slipknot that have died.

                  He said after he was booted from Slipknot that he had some serious health issues and the guys didn't believe him and tried saying he was fucked up or drinking. I thought he might have brought up the actual ailment but can't remember.

                  Regardless, he left his mark on the world and got to live out his dreams for a while. That's a lot more than can be said for most.

                          Ah, gotcha. I guess I wouldn't peg that as "natural causes", but what do I know. Sad for sure though.

                            That's a shame. I've never considered myself a fan of Slipknot, but I do like a few of their albums, and I have to say that Joey had a really cool style as a drummer. Don't really know anything about him as a person, though, outside of his drumming.

                            Uh, what? If that's not "natural causes," then what is? Whenever I hear "natural causes," I hear that as "a disease." Even "dying of old age" is dying of a disease (oftentimes complications from multiple chronic conditions made worse by a weakening immune system and failing organs).

                              Joey was also one of the more talented members of Slipknot too, writing a lot of the riffs on their earlier albums. 46 is way too young.

                              RIP.

                                Ya, I don't know a whole lot about medical stuff, but I know multiple sclerosis is some bad shit.

                                I wasn't the biggest Slipknot fan, but I was still a core kid and you couldn't not like Slipknot. Joey was always one of those people that made me want to learn drums because as little as I know about drums, they sounded really cool.

                                  Love or hate the bands he's been in, he brought extreme metal drumming into the mainstream, at a time when it was practically dead. People usually concentrate on the guitar styles throughout certain metal eras (the return of the guitar solo after nu metal, for example) but he did the equivalent for drums. He was instrumental in changing the metal landscape going forward, for sure. Absolute beast. RIP.

                                    Natural causes, ie body shutting down from old age. Dying at 46 isn’t natural. Just always sounded weird to me when someone died abnormally young and it was deemed “natural causes “.

                                    Anyway, no need to get your panties in a bunch. He died, it’s sad.

                                        Yeah this is a damn shame. I hope he didn't suffer, transverse myelitis can take your life in some unpleasant ways. Such a freaking talent, and he brought extreme music to acceptance for a lot of people, me included.
