The evidence continues to mount up that Slipknot have recruited drummer Jay Weinberg as their replacement for Joey Jordison. Today a former bandmate of Weinberg Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! - tweeted:

“Dear Slipknot, good luck with that. #shitbag”

Weinberg hasn’t had the best track records with bands in recent years, having an inauspicious departure from Madball and an apparently similar exit from Against Me!.

Slipknot have yet to announce the indentities of their new members, though Weinberg has long been rumored to have taken over the drums, while their new bassist is Alessandro ‘Vman’ Venturella.

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor was recently asked about why the band parted ways with drummer Joey Jordison by MetalHammer. Corey Taylor continued to be diplomatic on the topic, offering:

“I can’t talk too much about it because we’re going through the legalities of everything right now and settling everything, but it’s when a relationship hits that T-section and one person’s going one way and you’re going the other. And try as you might to either get them to go your way or try and go their way, at some point you’ve got to go in the direction that works for you. This is me speaking in the broadest terms, with respect to Joey. I guess to sum it up, it was one of the hardest decisions we ever made.”

“We’re all happy right now and we hope that he is. I’ve known him since ’91, and that was before we were in bands together, and he’s incredibly talented; he’s just in a place in his life, right now, that’s not where we are… in the nicest terms.”

When quizzed if drugs were to blame for the split, Taylor had the following to say:

“There’s only so far that I can give an explanation. For me, that has to be a sign of growing up, because before I would’ve just railed at whatever I thought the supposed evil was, but now it’s like, how do you explain to the fans? And that’s the hardest part, because no matter what explanation you give, it’s not gonna make them happy. I’m sure there are fans out there who have their own theories about it…”

Taylor has had little to no interaction with Jordison since the split, telling the magazine:

“I haven’t talked to Joey in a while, to be honest, that’s how different we are. It’s not because I don’t love him and I don’t miss him. And it is painful; we talk about him all the time, but at the same time, do we miss him or do we miss the old him? That’s what it really comes down to. It’s just a fucking shame.”
