Jordison Was 'Blindsided' By Slipknot Departure
Fans were stunned last month when it was announced co-founder Jordison had "parted ways" with the band for "personal reasons." Frontman Corey Taylor later admitted to frustration over the situation, saying: "Legally and respectfully, I can't say a lot about it. We're trying to protect him, protect us – just making sure we do everything right. It's difficult."
Now Jordison, who recently toured the UK with side-project Scar The Martyr, says: "I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumors and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot.
"I want to make it very clear that I did not quit Slipknot. This band has been my life for the last 18 years, and I would never abandon it, or my fans.
"This news has shocked and blindsided me as much as it has all of you." More.
