Slipknot's Jay Weinberg Details Somber First Session With Band (A Top Story)

On Wednesday Slipknot's Jay Weinberg Details Somber First Session With Band was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg has recalled how he started work on .5: The Gray Chapter just hours after being auditioned by the band. And he's enjoying the fact that he now takes part in meet-and-greet sessions with fans, even though he originally wasn't supposed to.

Weinberg, 25, first encountered Slipknot when he was 10 years old, via his father Max, who plays drums for Bruce Springsteen. By the time he was invited to Los Angeles to try out as replacement for Joey Jordison in 2013, he'd been heavily inspired by their music.

Weinberg tells MusicRadar: "It was a somber occasion - there was a definite mood in the room of what the band was going through, moving forward without a brother that has been with them for 20 odd years. I wanted to treat the situation with a delicate, careful respect.

"I wanted to kick the door in with the Slipknot attitude, but I wanted to be respectful of what they were going through because it was a really heavy thing. I was one of the first people to know that the band was moving forward without Joey Jordison." Read more - here.
