SLIPKNOT DRUMMER JOINS ROB ZOMBIE BAND
Rob Zombie has made an announced that Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison will be drumming for him during this Spring/Summer's tour.
A full statement from Jordison reads:
"I am honoured, proud and excited to announce that I have joined the ranks as the new touring drummer for Rob Zombie. I've been a fan of Zombie's since the beginning. I've toured with them and have always wanted to play for them. When John 5 called me up to ask if I knew any drummers I could recommend, I said, only half-jokingly, 'Yeah, me!"
"This show and set-list is mind blowing, and what better way to kick off than with the 'Gruesome Twosome' tour with horror-rock legend Alice Cooper. I want to thank all the Slipknot fans for their support and the Rob Zombie fans for welcoming me in. The Demonoid Phenomenon is on its way!"
Zombie also added his thoughts, saying:
"Joey is an absolutely crushing drummer and I am thrilled to have him as part of the Zombie family. His amazing skills promise to take the live show to a whole new level of insanity."
