Grammy-winning Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison left off Grammy Awards 'In Memoriam' segment
Joey Jordison had both won a Grammy and been nominated for several more as part of Slipknot.
As is too frequently the case, last night the Grammy Awards snubbed a notable metal musician in their "In Memoriam" segment, even though said person had previously won, or been nominated for, one of their awards.
Late Slipknot drummer and co-founder Joey Jordison, who won a Grammy with Slipknot for their 2004 track "Before I Forget" and was nominated six additional times along with his bandmates, was inexplicably excluded from the "In Memoriam" last night. (Jordison passed away on July 26.)
Sadly, Megaforce Records founder Jon Zazula was also left off the segment, as was acclaimed rock photographer Mick Rock and Entombed vocalist LG Petrov.
In 2014, the Grammys similarly snubbed Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman despite the fact that he had previously won two Grammys.
