“We are heartbroken to share the news that Joey Jordison, prolific drummer, musician and artist, passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 26th, 2021. He was 46,” the statement read. “Joey’s death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow. 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. The family will hold a private funeral service and asks the media and public to respect their wishes.” No cause of death was given.

Nathan Jonas “Joey” Jordison was born April 26, 1975 in Des Moines, Iowa, and he began playing drums at age 8, even forming his first band when he was still in elementary school. In 1995, Jordison joined a local metal band called the Pale Ones, who were later renamed Slipknot upon Jordison's suggestion. After creating their own scene in Iowa, attracting a devoted following of fans they affectionately dubbed “Maggots,” and self-releasing the demo album Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. on Halloween 1996, Slipknot signed to Roadrunner Records and broke through to the mainstream. Their self-titled Roadrunner debut was in fact the first album in that label’s history to be certified platinum.

With their unique and visceral blend of shock-rock, hip-hop, lyrical nihilism, and theatrical presentation (the nine-member band famously performed in matching industrial boilers suits and creepy 3D Halloween masks), Slipknot became one of the most successful, pioneering, and enduring bands of late-’90s/early-2000s nu-metal explosion. They eventually sold 30 million albums worldwide and earned 10 Grammy nominations, with their Rick Rubin-produced track "Before I Forget" winning the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 2006.

Jordison played on Slipknot’s first four studio albums — 1999’s Slipknot, 2001’s Iowa, 2004’s Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses), and 2008’s All Hope Is Gone — after which the band would not release a new album until 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. It was during the making of that record that Jordison left the group. At that time, in 2013, Slipknot cited mysterious personal reasons for his departure, and Jordison countered with a statement claiming that he had been fired, insisting, “[Slipknot] has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans.” Also in 2013, Jordison’s side-project Murderdolls officially disbanded.

However, in 2016 Jordison revealed that after experiencing mysterious symptoms since 2010, he had finally been diagnosed with transverse myelitis, a neurological disease that had temporarily rendered him unable to use his left leg or play drums during the end of his run with Slipknot. It is currently unclear if this condition was connected to Jordison’s death in any way, but in a 2018 interview with Rhythm magazine, he stated that he had fully recovered with the help of intensive rehabilitation.

Along with his work in Slipknot and Murderdolls, Jordison — whose influences included Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham, the Who’s Keith Moon, KISS’s Peter Criss, Mötley Crüe’s Tommy Lee, Gene Krupa, and Buddy Rich — played in Scar the Martyr, Vimic, and Sinsaenum. He also collaborated with Rob Zombie, Metallica, Marilyn Manson, Korn, Ministry, Otep, and Satyricon. During his career, Jordison received many accolades for his drumming, including a Golden God trophy at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, a Drummies Award for Best Metal Drummer, and the title of No. 1 heavy metal drummer according Loudwire readers. 

In 2010, a Rhythm magazine readers' poll even named Jordison the best drummer of the previous 25 years, ranking him above the likes of Dave Grohl and Rush’s Neil Peart. He reacted to that honor by stating, “I'm at a loss for words. This is beyond unbelievable. Something like this reminds me every day why I continue to do this.”

Joey Jordison, the former drummer for Slipknot, has died at the age of 46.

The musician's death was confirmed by his family in a statement to Billboard.

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Joey Jordison, prolific drummer, musician and artist passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 26th, 2021," the statement said. "Joey’s death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow. To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart and his love for all things family and music."

The statement continued: "The family of Joey have asked that friends, fans and media understandably respect our need for privacy and peace at this incredibly difficult time. The family will hold a private funeral service and asks the media and public to respect their wishes."

There was no mention of Jordison's cause of death.

The drummer helped form Slipknot in his native Iowa in 1995 with Shawn Crahan and Paul Gray, Billboard reports. In 2013, the band announced that they'd be "parting ways" with Jordison.

The band cited "personal reasons" as the reason for the split, but said that the decision was made "with great pain but quiet respect" – though Jordison later said in interviews that he was fired.

"No band meeting? None. Anything from management? No, nothing," he told Metal Hammer in 2016. "All I got was a stupid f--king email saying I was out of the band that I busted my a-- my whole life to f--king create."

Also in 2016, the musician revealed that his exit from Slipknot came alongside his getting sick with a disease called transverse myelitis – "an inflammation of both sides of one section of the spinal cord," per the Mayo Clinic. Jordison claimed that his bandmates mistook his medical issues for substance abuse.

"I couldn't play anymore," he said onstage at the 2016 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. "It was a form of multiple sclerosis, which I don't wish on my worst enemy."

During his time in Slipknot, the metal band ruled the rock charts and hit  No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with "All Hope Is Gone" in 2008.

Throughout his career, Jordison also played with the bands Murderdolls, Scar the Martyr and Sinsaenum.

What disease did Joey Jordison have?

The US Sun 27 July, 2021 - 06:22pm

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

JOEY Jordison is the founding drummer of heavy metal band Slipknot.

Jordison died on Monday, July 26, 2021.

In 2016, Jordison revealed that he had been diagnosed with transverse myelitis.

As a result, Jordison lost the ability to move his legs, which he cites as one of the reasons he was fired from the band in 2013.

"I couldn't play anymore. It was a form of multiple sclerosis, which I don't wish on my worst enemy,” he said onstage at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards back in 2016.

Jordison also revealed that his bandmates confused the condition as a substance abuse problem.

"All I got was a stupid f***ing email saying I was out of the band that I busted my a** my whole life to f***ing create,” Jordison told Metal Hammer in a 2016 interview.

Transverse myelitis is a condition that is caused by the inflammation of the spinal cord.

According to John Hopkins, the disease is characterized by, "symptoms and signs of neurologic dysfunction in motor and sensory tracts on both sides of the spinal cord.  The involvement of motor and sensory control pathways frequently produce altered sensation, weakness and sometimes urinary or bowel dysfunction."

The website lists the four classic symptoms as:

The disease can affect anyone, no matter the gender or age group, and is sometimes associated with autoimmune disorders.

Jordison died in his sleep at the age of 46.

The family told Billboard in a statement that he passed away peacefully but did not give a specific cause of death.

"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," the statement reads.

"Joey’s death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow."
