Slipknot part ways with drummer Jay Weinberg

Jay Weinberg

Slipknot has announced a split from drummer Jay Weinberg, who joined the band in 2014 after the band's original drummer was released in 2013. Slipknot's original drummer, Joey Jordison died in 2021. The band has yet to announce a replacement for Weinberg. 

Weinberg is the latest Slipknot member to leave after the keyboardist Craig Jones left in June. 

Slipknot thanked Weinberg for his dedication and contributions, but stated their intention to evolve creatively.

The statement reads:

We would like to thank Jay Weinberg for his dedication and passion over the past ten years. No one can ever replace Joey Jordison's original sound, style or energy, but Jay honored Joey's parts and contributed to the last three albums and we, the band, and the fans appreciate it. But as ever, slipknot is intent on evolving. The band has decided to make a creative decision, and to part ways with Jay. We wish Jay all the best and are very excited for what the future holds.

One of the actual worst bands ever

Jay replaced Joey in like 2014. Joey died in 2021 but he had parted ways with Slipknot way before that. Nice "journalism."

Let's hope he brings back that side project with Brodsky.

Prolly wanted a raise. Happens with hired guys who put in a lot of time and get over the thrill of being in a big band and want to get paid more.

Hang it up maggots. Its over.

Fred Madball here, I could have told you this guy was trouble. He could never vibe with the hardcore lifestyle. Rockstar brat. He kept complaining about Hoya's farts

get joey back

anonymous 114 days ago

He's actually been demoted to playing with Vended. Which is one of the gayest band names ever.

anonymous 114 days ago

it's a scab band and always will be and will always be around. they wear masks it doesn't matter who is playing. clown will manage and both his kid and corey's will step in someday. maybe like the DJ and one guitarist will still be in rotation. that's it.

Lifelong fan of the band. Each album has something I enjoy but it's time to hang it up

Slipknot was like nah, our drummer is too good and he's making the rest of us look bad, let's get rid of him.

He definitely wanted a raise. It's good to see that Slipknot is now run like Soulfly and the Deftones.

anonymous 114 days ago

The post has now disappeared, f*cking shit show

anonymous 114 days ago

They're going through members left and right, soon it will just be clown and a bunch of touring musicians.

anonymous 114 days ago

band continues to get worse and worse. probably trying to get random dudes to play in the band for cheaper

anonymous 114 days ago

Dudes named Kyle who drink Monster and punch holes in sheetrock are not stoked.

anonymous 114 days ago

Next dude will cum his pants to make $100 a night wearing a mask up there.

anonymous 114 days ago

Band is a whole traveling act of bozos. Nepotism is cool

anonymous 114 days ago

They will be going the way of other bands - it will ultimately end up just being Corey and Clown and then different studio and touring musicians that will remain unnamed "because it is about the music, not the people."

anonymous 114 days ago

They just fired the most passionate band member left. All these dudes are cooked, last EP was a joke, and you have Corey Taylor playing Slipknot songs during his 'solo' sets. It's over.

anonymous 114 days ago

It's over? What the f*ck are you talking about? This band has always been one of the biggest pieces of dogshit ever. Clowns in masks banging on garbage cans? But it's over now? Holy shit. Nu metal = complete dogshit Anyone that has ever like any nu metal band ever is a complete h0m0. I guarantee it

anonymous 114 days ago

Disgorge (CA) is the only good band ever.

anonymous 114 days ago

Rick has maggots in his penis. Necrophelia has serious drawbacks… but is so cvlt…

anonymous 114 days ago

It's true, anyone who has ever claimed slipknot was even "decent," at any point in time, is a complete moron. Next generation juggalos….

"anonymous 1 hour ago It's over? What the f*ck are you talking about? This band has always been one of the biggest pieces of dogshit ever. Clowns in masks banging on garbage cans? But it's over now? Holy shit." Blue Man Group about to lose a member. 💣💥

anonymous 113 days ago

He wasn't fired, he quit to join Nails.

anonymous 113 days ago

Some gay guy has a hard on for Rick. May or may not have an obsession with Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs.

anonymous 113 days ago

If they'd hung it up after Vol. 3 they'd have a legacy. But instead they continued to crank out album after album of the same fast drum fill into butt-rock chug "anthems" with a few "ballads" mixed in, all whilst Corey's belt buckles got bigger and bigger.

anonymous 113 days ago

Talented passionate member makes fat dude hitting garbage with a bat look bad, looses job. Such is life.

anonymous 113 days ago

Jay was the best part of the band. Strong work cocksmokes.

anonymous 113 days ago

Does he stand with Israel?

anonymous 113 days ago

Have it on good authority as I'm pretty close with the band - There was a major schedule conflict with Jay wanting to attend the sold out Harms Way hometown show at the metro in Chicago (1100 cap btw) or a mandatory band meeting. The band gave him a choice and he picked HW.

anonymous 113 days ago

Contract prob ended, and re signing him means a raise, It's a business.

anonymous 113 days ago

anonymous 113 days ago

I wonder if his dad called them up and yelled at them for dumping Jay lol. He did that when they kicked him out of Against Me! Honestly I think Jay is horribly overrated.

anonymous 113 days ago

He had a decent retainer but Nashville is getting expensive.

ABOUT TIME. Dude had no where near the skill of or originality of Joey. He sounded generic and boring for this band. Maybe they finally f*cking realized it. I'm a drummer. CLEAR difference between him and Joey
