Jordison Was Just as Shocked as You
As fans of Slipknot, surely we’re all still shocked about the announcement last month that drummer Joey Jordison will not be with the band moving forward. Reports kept adding that Jordison was working with his new project Scar the Martyr. Well in a statement posted New Year’s Day, the drummer said he wants to make it very clear that he “DID NOT QUIT SLIPKNOT.” He also goes on to say that he would never abandon the band or their fans and that he was shocked and blindsided by the news as well. As for what really led to the departure, even Jordison is keeping his mouth shut. He says he must remain silent at this time, though there is much he’d like to say. He then went on to wish everyone a happy New Year. In a recent interview with a radio station up north ‘Knot front man Corey Taylor said that more details about the departure will come soon. We’ll keep you posted.
Ashba's Proposal Leads to Cops' Discipline
Remember back in August when Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashbah posted a pic to his Instagram showing himself alongside his girlfriend turned fiancé flying around in a Las Vegas Police helicopter? Shortly after that fateful moment, Ashbah proposed. The story was that the couple just went a long for a ride along, but more details are coming out and discipline is being handed down. The police captain who arranged the flight has been allowed to retire, rather than face demotion (and surely he’ll keep his fat pension). As for the pilot, well he got his wings clipped. He’s no longer gonna be flying for the department. It’s funny how things catch up to you. It could have all gone unnoticed if Ashbah hadn’t posted the pic to Instagram and personally thanked police for the experience. As for Ashbah’s abuse of his rock stardom, it’s unclear if he’ll be charged with anything … even helicopter gas. Hopefully he feels like a d-bag!
