Is Slipknot’s Jay Weinberg The Best Metal Drummer On Earth?

November 30, 2019

Are you surprised? I’m not. Slipknot’s drummer Jay Weinberg was just named Music Radar’s “Best Metal Drummer”. This is crazy – Wienberg got twice as many votes as ALL the other entrants combined; Paul Bostaph (Slayer), Ray Luzier (Korn), Jocke Wallgren (Amon Amarth), Art Cruz (Lamb Of God) & Chris Kontos (Machine Head).

Love that Jay gave props to the other drummers in the running, “Shout out to all the other incredible nominees. I’m endlessly inspired by this enormous community of drummers, and I’m grateful for every opportunity to experience their contributions to music. The best gratitude I can show is by giving everything I’ve got in every recording and every performance. Here’s to a great 2019 and exciting 2020! See you out there.”

Weinberg was a fan of the Slipknot before being asked to try out as replacement for Joey Jordison in 2013. They still haven’t talked about the reason for Joey’s exit. Doubt we’ll ever hear the real reason, to be honest.

And with Jay Weinberg lay it down, do we really need to hear why Jordison’s gone?
