      For me personally, seeing him play live at the London Arena show in 2002, where they filmed the Disasterpieces DVD. It had been postponed after 9/11 so the build up made it so exciting! A very close second place seeing him play with Metallica in 04 at Download. That was such an amazing experience after we were stood there in a continuous bottle fight for nearly two hours wondering if Metallica were going to show up or not...So glad I got to be at both. I wish I could go back in time and watch them again! He was truly amazing. RIP Joey :(

    Watching him play Disasterpieces live while spinning around on the pentagram. Followed by the "not until I say, Jump the fuck up" If you've ever been in the Zero Bullshit, you know what I'm talking about. Going to a Slipknot concert in the 2000s was a life changing experience. He's the reason I started drumming and started listening to heavier metal. It was heartbreaking to hear he died on my birthday man... I'll never forget when he threw his drumstick to me in Toronto. Your spirit lives on through us all! Us maggots never truly die, because one simple fact. You cannot kill what you did not create. Stay (sic) everyone.

    I remember meeting Joey when I was like 5 years old (I’m 16) and I can still hear the subtle joy in his voice when I ran up in my little jumpsuit and mask, he gave me a high five before we left. I remember the day I found out he passed, it crushed me to the bottom of heart. We’ll always miss #1

      Well he didn’t, he lost a lot with his disease, he couldn’t keep going, he had to retire from slipknot. But he did play again, he did beat it. Yes he died from complications due to it but he did regain his leg strength for a time after he left slipknot. It wasn’t his arms that were the problem, it was specifically his legs that were most impacted.

    I have Joey to thank for my career, my passion, and my purpose in life. It was his compositions that made me fall in love with drums and metal music from a very young age. My favorite moment of him will always be him blessing the London crowd with the drum solo performance of a lifetime, spinning around and upside down all to end it with a cymbal catch and a middle finger. R.I.P to the one who started it all. We love and miss you Joey.

    Thank you for sharing this video one year after Joey’s departure, Joey for me is motivation and inspiration, I’m from Puerto Rico 🇵🇷, and I always told my mom from the age of 11 that I wanted to play double pedal like Joey, I always talked about Joey, even to my dad who didn’t like rock metal, at 29 I mastered the double pedal well and so many techniques that Joey had, perp we’re on our way.

    I’ve been a Slipknot fan since I was a young teen just before Iowa was released. I always played guitar and Joey stood out to me amongst other drummers. Maybe at first because they were my favorite band, but as I got older and I grew as a musician I started to notice the uniqueness of his playing. He’s definitely not one that is easy to mimic. Like many other high level musicians, there is a certain sound when he plays that immediately lets you know he was the one behind the kit. Great video, really honors such a special musician whom we unfortunately lost too soon.

      ​@Tink McGathy have respect for the dead while disrespecting the living? joey liked Metallica, i'm sure he wouldn't have been to happy about you being disrespectful to a fellow drummer. lars has just as much success & influence as joey if not more despite how ppl feel about his drumming. i don't like Metallica's music personally but because of joey i at least would show a little respect towards lars. i'm sure lars had quite a bit of influence on joey's drumming as well.

      @Tink McGathy It means that popular tastes are generally not indicative of talent levels. Also, generally, you have to have some notoriety to have haters. I'm not hating, it's just a fact that he was not the best drummer, what's wrong with being solidly above average though?
      As far as respect for the dead, it's the internet, good luck with that request. All I can do is say that I agree with you that Joey and Slipknot earned their place in history, and anyone who disagrees with that is wrong. I haven't liked anything they released since Iowa, and even I can't argue against that.
      Lars is a trash drummer and a trash human. Peace out.

    Joey was and always will be the GOAT! Jay does a great job at what he does and I think he is an absolutely wonderful addition to the Knot, but Joey was a chief cornerstone in Slipknot's sound. His playing was magical.

    I'm so lucky to have seen him play 3 times. The disasterpieces DVD I watched a million times just to see Joey play. He was probly the biggest influence on me playing metal. He could just do the most difficult things 10 times faster than anyone at the time in american metal.
    I miss him every day. He was #1 for a reason. Thank you Drumeo and Ash so much for showing him much due respect.

    probably my favourite part is Disasterpiece's intro until the first verse. Slipknot did a lot of such layered intros, but this one is the best if you ask me. drums in there might not be Joey's top, but it really shows how he was able to add into band's music, to create tension and to resolve it with an explosion.

    Thank you so much for this. I think everybody who is into drumming and did love Slipknot from the early days did notice all of what you said and played 👏 Everytime I sit behind my drums I'm gonna play at least some parts of Joey's songs, I truly love Iowa track, carries me away and could play it for ever... Magic, simple magic and mastery.

    Thank god that Surfacing part made it into this compilation!
    It is always the very first part when I think about JJ in Slipknot - it's not super technical (even though it could've been but JJ knew that the purpose of drums is not to be the center piece) but is super groovy and complements the music so incredibly well... Genius.

  • eliminshrintar

    JJ was a musician first and a drummer second. If yall want to see the full range of his creative thinking, look up his work on the Roadrunner All Stars record. He was a team captain and his group did four songs. Four incredibly different takes that he masterminded. Incredible stuff, even if a couple of them aren't metal.
    I am one who picked up sticks because of him. RIP Joey.

    Watching his solo on the Disasterpieces DVD was mind blowing, the way he keeps perfect time whilst the kit tips forwards then does a 360. Yea he wasn’t the first to do that stunt but with his drumming intensity it was elevated far beyond what had come before.
    Also his ability to stand in for many other drummers at short notice, noticeably Korn and Metallica

    I would say that my favorite Joey drum beat was probably near the end of Surfacing. It reminds me of a hip hop beat but it still has the aggression from metal. And it works perfectly

    Joey is the reason I started playing, my favorite song is left behind and one of the reasons is because toward the end when it’s raining in the video he builds up and looks right at the camera. That mask is my favorite Joey mask and he just goes off at the end banging his head so awesome!

    He was the reason I started playing drums in 2015. He passed one day after my 16th birthday last year. RIP legend, and as a metal drummer with chronic medical issues, Ik how hard it is and it breaks my heart that he was taken so soon. I’m just glad that he didn’t let it stop him from playing when he was here on earth.

    One year today and it still doesn’t seem real.

    Honestly, the drum parts in vol. 3's "Three Nil" very often just pop in my head randomly. Especially, at the very end of the song, where he plays this little filler on a cymbal that sounds so soft and elegant contrasting the rest of this brutal headbanging song. It is really the small details that made him such a compelling and unique drummer. May he rest in peace!

    My favorite slipknot song is “The Shape”, for multiple reasons.
    On top of being the heaviest/most underrated song they’ve made (in my opinion), I feel it showcases Joey’s creativity. The verses, for the most part, are just ambient noise with a two note base line. Joey follows the bass with his foot while playing a thrash beat over it, but somehow makes it groovy. The chorus to me is really where he shines creatively. It’s a tremolo riff, and I feel if that riff was given to any other metal drummer, they probably would have either put a blast beat over it, or just laid some heavy double bass over it, but Joey grooved that tremolo, and it was the first time I’d heard something like that.
    He took a song that if played by anyone else, would have been noise and double bass, but he took that song and made it groove, all while keeping a heavy feel. That song, to me, is the true genius of Joey Jordison!
    Rest in Power, Joey!!
