I saw the title of the video and my jaw dropped…. Such a tragic loss. Wow. Playing Slipknot for the rest of the day.

This is just unbelievable that artists are passing away out of the blue. Jordy R.I.P Slipknot will carry your legacy.
My biggest Influence, Idole and the Greatest Of All Time …. I‘m heartbroken.
I wish he had his reunion with Slipknot at least for one show. I had the feeling his life energy plug was pulled when Slipknot fired hin so ruthlessly. He was a legend and treated like shit by his former brothers. That shit hurts a lot and is not easy to get over.
Rest In Peace

Damn this sucks. I met him twice. He'd done 2 different signings in my city. Seemed he enjoyed doing his bit for the fans. So thank you 🙏

He didn't pass away he just went back home to jam with Paul.
It’s just seems weird that both Joey and Paul are now gone. They were the backbone rhythm section of their best albums.

For once, I actually WANT to know what Corey Taylor thinks about this.

RIP Joey.
I remember watching a drum cam of Joey performing Eyeless years ago and I instantly fell in love with his playing. He got me into drumming and will always be a top for me. It’s hard to believe… rest in power Jordison 🤘
I can’t believe this man

This honestly breaks my heart. Joey made mad music with Slipknot that gave my life a soundtrack for years. It brings tears to my eyes when a very vital part of that passes away.
RIP Joey. It is a disgrace to see you gone.

RIP Joey, all of us maggots will miss you
Slipknot would have never existed, if it weren't for Joey.
He came to my friend's rock show in Des Moines in 2002...a down to earth guy no matter the success...RIP
RIP Joey Jordison, a gifted, talented guy, gone too soon...
Paul and Joey are jamming in Heaven now 🥀🖤

If any Christian s are here, please pray for Joey's family. God bless you all. 😔🙏
The world will never be the same without Joey. Rest In Peace man.
He’s getting piggy back rides from our creator by now.

Rest easy Joey<3
Matt Middleton
Matt Middleton:
I understand bands have departures with members, but the fact that slipknot just blacked out their social media pictures for Joey as a tribute was upsetting. They should have gave him some sort of respect for him. Especially when Joey made slipknot bigger than Corey's neck
He's sharing drum tricks with The Rev now. RIP Joey 🙏 I'll be jamming Slipknot hard the next few days.

Now I can't watch a single video of Paul or Joey without even shedding a tear, hopefully they have a memorial tour/concert specially for Joey, just like how they did one for Paul back in 2010/11 😞
Definitely one of the GOATs in drums, damn this sucks and prayers to the family and the band 😢

Death took joey in his sleep. He's earned his rest. Thank you for the music and memories joey. We'll keep you in our hearts and I'll keep your legacy alive whenever I blast the Iowa album.
I love all the projects he was involved in. This just breaks my heart.
This is heartbreaking. I'm so lucky to have seen him perform twice, both were incredible experiences. Sending love to his family. Thank you for the music, Rest In Peace Joey🖤

When my fiancee told me, I just teared up.
Rest in peace Joey, you were one of the best, you can not be replaced in any way. Best wishes to his family.
Was just watching a drum teacher react to his playing last week. Joey has been an inspiration to me and thousands of others over the decades. Such sad news, so young, gone too soon, one of the best. Rip Joey 🙏🏼🤘🏼

I remember seeing Joey playing "The Heretic Anthem" on "Disasterpieces" when I was 13 or 14 and being blown away ... from then on, he really changed the way I looked at drumming

Not only did he inspire a whole new generation of kick-ass drummers, he co-founded one of the greatest bands (in my opinion) to ever exist

He's going to be sadly missed and the world is going to be a different place without him

Rest in peace, Joey 🤘

I’ve been upset about musicians before, this is the first time I shed tears. This is an incredible loss for music, metal especially, but this man had so much more to give and his music literally has saved countless and inspired millions. RIP. Shocked is an understatement.
this hurts man. it’s amazing how someone you’ve never even met can impact your life so much, and it hurts when they passed as if you knew them. We love you much, rest in peace brother.

Joey was an amazing drummer. His double bass footwork was legendary & his solos absolutely insane! Tragic loss of a huge talent! R.I.P. Joey.
R.I.P to such an incredibly gifted drummer and absolutely one of the best! We will all dearly miss you Joey!
46 is no age to pass away. He was millions of peoples’ drumming idol growing up. I grew out of him being my favorite drummer as I’ve gotten older, but he was always a big part as to why I started playing drums.. sad
When I saw this I literally couldn't believe it. It doesnt feel real man. Long live Joey Jordison, a true legend
RIP Joey, he was by far my favorite drummer, and always will be. Him and Paul will be in heaven with all the other metal legends who have passed away.

J H:
I hope Joey receives the respect, love and response he deserves from 7 "one is RIP' individuals
Just started listening to this genre of music recently after only hearing it occasionally as a younger kid (I'm 21 now) and out of all the bands I've found myself primarily listening to slipknot for the past 2 weeks. I really enjoyed Joeys sound with the drums. It's unfortunate that after only 2 weeks of listening he passes.

R.I.P Joey

Rest in peace Joey, cheers to you for your endless talent, dedication, and heart.

I was just watching his drum solos last night and showing my girlfriend for the first time. I can not believe he is gone. 😔 R.I.P. ♥️
It was such an honouring growing up as a teenager hearing and being able to go to shows and see you play. You were truly a master of the kit and you'll be very sorely missed. Send our love to Paul up there aswell dude.. 🙏💔
