Joey Jordison says his dismissal from Slipknot was 'cowardly'

Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison continues to open up about the circumstances surrounding his 2013 departure from the band. In a new interview with Metal Hammer, Jordison says he was fired from the band via "stupid fucking email." He also goes on to say that his bandmates thought he was on drugs, when he was really battling a neurological disorder. Discussing his exit, Jordison said:
"No band meeting? None. Anything from management? No, nothing. All I got was a stupid fucking email saying I was out of the band that I busted my ass my whole life to fucking create. That's exactly what happened and it was hurtful. I didn't deserve that shit after what I'd done and everything I'd been through. "They got confused about my health issues and obviously even I didn't know what it was at first. They thought I was fucked up on drugs, which I wasn't at all. I've been through so many things with those guys and I love them very much. What's hurtful is the way it went down was not fucking right. "That's all I want to say. They way they did it was fucking cowardly. It was fucked up."
