Slipknot singer's comments on Joey Jordison firing suggest drugs to blame
"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."
Given those suggestive remarks, Taylor was asked if Jordison's dismissal was related to substance abuse:
Taylor also told Metal Hammer that he currently has no relationship whatsoever with Jordison:

Just for the record joey was the most talented member of this band. It's a shame that slipknot is the reason I got into heavy music and everything they have put out after Iowa has been terrible. Not gonna bash em, but when I was a kid I would have killed someone for saying bad shit about em and now I am saying bad shit about em
everything they have put out after Iowa has been terrible. Not gonna bash em.....
Drugs to blame? Maybe you are jumping to conclusions a bit. Maybe he just turned into a complete arsehole
^ yes, it is because he turned into an jerk, not because of drugs, even though previously admitted to an addiction...sure
the new material speaks for itself… they should have broken up. Joey and Paul were the main songwriters and drive of Slipknot. I never cared for Corey, he's a douche dick pansy.
cool, ditch your best friend because he's having substance problems?? the band was this dude's only saving grace and now that his best friends kicked him to the curb, his spiral is only gonna get way worse.
Fck Corey. Joey is irreplaceable and the way they fired him was shitty. Slipknot will never be the same. RIP Paul Gray.

Dude is a phenomenal drummer. Maybe now, he'll start a real metal band and do more blast beats.
He already did start his own band 'STM' and it was sh*t. You can the substance abuse problems, most likely alcohol, he got really BIG. He's a tub now.
Yeah, man, you can substance abuse problems.
I thought joey left because he didnt want to move on without paul tours were fine but writing without him was stupid and look what came out it sounds like what everyone else did......become radio friendly because your boss the record company probably fckin told you too and youre just pissed a joe because he left because he knew it was going to be fcking stupid at least someone from last generations metal is still fcking true to the music
Its ironic being Slipknot have been a heroin band since they started, and were very open about it on the road, asking for it out loud etc...so why not help joey?..they already let one guy kill himself
its the opposite,he was doing this so called "substance" years ago then stopped.I think thats what corey meant when he said ," do we miss him or do we miss the old him?"This is what coke does,gives you kick ass drumming:https://www.youtu be.com/watch?v=ZN7o7oolaA4
i am really pissed off about this but I guess we all have to learn to accept it
