SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison has described his departure from the band as "cowardly", revealing that he was fired via email because the other members thought he was on drugs.
Joey parted ways with the band in 2013, with his departure cited at the time as due to "personal reasons". He had been in the group since 1995, releasing four albums with the band.
Last week, the musician revealed that ill health was the reason for him being unable to perform with the group. Joey Jordison suffers from a neurological disorder called transverse myelitis........

"To my fans, friends, and associates… I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumours and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot.

I would like to thank you all for your unwavering love and support, and wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year."
