I can, true, Shawn and chris do play it aswell, but it aint super hard to play, I use it as a co-ordination exercise.
Plus, all this about kids eventually "turning" on Joey, they might, but I have no plans on doing so. He has inspired my metal playing since the beginning and still does. He is also a great inspiration to me as far as music in general goes, his work on the "Roadrunner United :The all star sessions" was really well done.

its true.....and if you see some of the live shows and videos you can see shawn singing in the backround too
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1xcH...ot%20%28sic%29

its a long video but at one part you can see that shawn tries back vocal but the mic doesnt work

Slipknot needs the percussionists I dunno why you would say that he would be better without the percussionists. Joey is awsome percussionists or not. But they need Shawn and Chris, they said themselves that they wouldn't be complete without everyone there.

Do you really think he would say they could be just fine, or better, without them? I mean come on, that would just create an incredible amount of animosity within the band. How many times have you seen band members dis another unless there were problems within the bandmembers?

Oh, and to stay on topic, I think Joey is a very good drummer, but not my favorite nor one of the best IMO.

I think Joey would be better without the two "percussionists" but they also make the band come alive. Not just Joey, but everybody in the band.

Slipknot is known for their hard core music and the two others are there to put a little more feeling into it, but joey is deffenetly the one you hear when it comes to percussion

Whats up friends i havnt posted on this thread in a while, good to see its still up there.

Firstly people are saying that the percussionists are not needed, but i can tell you they are for very good reasons. They diffinately can be heard in their music and if people deny that then your listening ability is terrible and you shouldnt be a drummer. They inhance live performances as their sound is louder and more brutal, which of course is what Slipknot are all about. And last of all they are in there for the band. Slipknot try to do everything differently and their own way, and appearence is one of the things which contributes to this. They are needed in there and true Slipknot fans know that, because if they were taken out or werent in there, they wouldnt be what they are today.

As for the person who said listen to real metal, your a joke! By the looks of my name you would probebly say i have no idea about metal, i mean korn and slipknot, they dont have critics at all. But i did that because i try and be different as well, im not one of those metal fans that say nu metal is totally crap when it isnt. Lamb of God and Shadows Fall are good bands, but if you want to start talking like that i would say maiden, priest, metallica, those sort of bands that made metal what it is. Slipknot are insane and for those people that say nu metal is bad and doesnt compare, then you ignorent and only limit your own musical taste.

cheers!

have you ever seen how fast joey actualy drums? if you have you must realize that no human can do that for that long... my prespective on the other 2 drummers is that once joey does his kick ass drummin he needs to take it easy for a minute... this is were the other 2 come in... they back him up and give him a bit of a chance to recover.

theory number 2... hes a robot and they are there incase he breaks...

I don't know, if he would be better without those two "percussionists" ..they are a part of the show, but I think your right, they play simple beats (if you can call it that?) and Joey just beat the hell out of those drums, so you can't really hear those two "percussionists" ..but still they are a part of the band, and in "The Blister Exists" they play snare drum in the middle of the song an d at the end of the song, and there they need them, they also sing backingvocals in "The Hertic Anthem" and many other songs, so they need them, I just think that the drums they bang on, is a part of the show!

I'm posting this more out of boredom than anything, but I do feel I need to shed some light on the subject. So, here we go.

I grew up on Slipknot, and even today they still remain my favorite band. But even this fact doesn't dilute my feelings on what makes a good drummer. I've listened to a lot of different bands, and I've heard many drummers, and I can personally say I do not think Joey is the greatest drummer ever, nor do I think he's the greatest metal drummer ever.

I think a lot of his appeal comes from the fact that he is truly an amazing guy. He is one of those people that takes what he does seriously and he's constantly working to improve. He's only thirty one and he's managed to make a career as a drummer, and a very good drummer at that. He's also become a very big inspiration for a lot of the younger kids just getting into the drums (myself included) and I think this is why a lot of people despise him, and Slipknot.

The popularity of Slipknot really takes away from what he's done as a drummer, but if you take away Slipknot and you take away the fame, what you're left with is him as a drummer, as a musician. He's got a great style and he really feels for the music he makes behind the kit. He's still got a long career ahead of him and can only get better as time goes on (or worse as some drummers have shown us in the past). Again, I will say, he's not the best drummer, but he's definitly up there on the charts.

Plus, you got to remember, this guy not only plays drums, but he plays guitar, he plays bass, and he produces CDs. You can really respect him just for what he's accomplished, and what he's in the process of accomplishing. Maybe one day when his time is over, people will see that he really does possess a great talent and pure love for the drums and music in general.

-------

And as for the subject of Shawn and Chris in Slipknot.

When the band first started out, they really wanted a whole overall audio assault with drums pounding from the front with Joey being a main support for the group in the back. The idea gradually changed over the years as Shawn and Chris picked up on back up vocals, but the overall effect when it's put on CD is really amazing. Shawn himself is an incredibly intelligent guy, maybe not when it comes to his personal health, but mentally, he's all there. If he wasn't in Slipknot, they really wouldn't be who they are today.


------

Well, I do believe I've spoken my mind....
Let this be a lesson in life.
Don't let boredom take over your soul....

Great post archaic. You're right, we shouldn't try to take away from Joey because he's in Slipknot (which may or may not lose him credibility). Again, like you said, take away the band and he's still there and as an overall musician he obviously works hard and does well for himself. So any Joey-haters out there, look at his overall body of work.

Christ, I'm not even a Slipknot fan, quite the opposite.

it's definitely not the masks!! o.k. maybe he is nor as fast as george kollias neither as derrek roddy, flo mounier and conny peterson ( to name some other examples), but he's really a great drummer with a very individual and cool style...besides, they also perform unmasked sometimes.o.k you never see their faces clearly...but that's not what it''s about...it's about music!!!

The masks really don't have anything to do with Joey's overall talent on the drums. As I stated before, if you take all that away, he's just a drummer and he may not be the fastest but he is still a speed demon. And you're right, drummers like the one's you've mentioned really don't get much credit but perhaps that has something to do with the fact that most of the masses don't dive that deep into metal, therefore they don't ever hear those excellent drummers. They all possess a lot of talent, Joey is just more known for it because the bands he's in are listened to by more people.

give joey a break? no problem, but i wouldn't say he was god. i wouldn't even say steve gadd was god. not even buddy rich. because i am yet to see the perfect drummer. and i think because of that we're intitled to believe saying that joey jordison is god is a little silly. i realise you're not the one who said it in the first place, but you know what i mean.

I have been listening tyo slipknot since the first album came out and i would like to say that although chris and shawn are essential to the bands stage show they are not really needed for percussion purposes.

If you look at the video on joeys section of drummerworld and watch the clip where they play heretic anthem on SNL you will hear how raw and aggressive it sounds without the timpany and other backing percussion.

I love slipknot as much as anyone here (although iowa left something to be desired, but all was made up for volume 3, i f**cking love that album) however i feel that chris and shawn are only neccesary for backing vocals the majority of the time (i cant remember which track it is but on one track they have a screaming call and answer thing which sounds amazing! it might be track 3 but i am probably wrong) and stage performance. The percussion is only required in a few songs, ie pulse of the maggots with the beer keg.

since i love joey and slipknot i thought this would be a good first post. he has the fastest double bass ive ever heard and some great fills. he just keeps getting better with their new albums (vol.3 kicks serious ass) and the drum solo on their live album is much better then the one from the disasterpiece dvd. as for the 2 other percounists there not really needed, but they add to the live show which is pretty intense

I dont know about the album getting a bit soft being a bad thing, as musicians the whole group have outdone themselves and so for me this is their best album by one hell of a long way, not saying that there arent other tracks on other albums which are amazing.

I also strongly agree with looking out for better metal drummers. Loving bran dailor at the moment, the guy is a machine. Also does anyone know the name of the drummer for devil driver? He is the tightest metal drummer i have heard in ages, at first i thought it was adrum machine. Listen to "end of the line" and tell me otherwise.

I grew up on Slipknot, and even today they still remain my favorite band. But even this fact doesn't dilute my feelings on what makes a good drummer. I've listened to a lot of different bands, and I've heard many drummers, and I can personally say I do not think Joey is the greatest drummer ever, nor do I think he's the greatest metal drummer ever.

I think a lot of his appeal comes from the fact that he is truly an amazing guy. He is one of those people that takes what he does seriously and he's constantly working to improve. He's only thirty one and he's managed to make a career as a drummer, and a very good drummer at that. He's also become a very big inspiration for a lot of the younger kids just getting into the drums (myself included) and I think this is why a lot of people despise him, and Slipknot.

The popularity of Slipknot really takes away from what he's done as a drummer, but if you take away Slipknot and you take away the fame, what you're left with is him as a drummer, as a musician. He's got a great style and he really feels for the music he makes behind the kit. He's still got a long career ahead of him and can only get better as time goes on (or worse as some drummers have shown us in the past). Again, I will say, he's not the best drummer, but he's definitly up there on the charts.

Plus, you got to remember, this guy not only plays drums, but he plays guitar, he plays bass, and he produces CDs. You can really respect him just for what he's accomplished, and what he's in the process of accomplishing. Maybe one day when his time is over, people will see that he really does possess a great talent and pure love for the drums and music in general.

-------

And as for the subject of Shawn and Chris in Slipknot.

When the band first started out, they really wanted a whole overall audio assault with drums pounding from the front with Joey being a main support for the group in the back. The idea gradually changed over the years as Shawn and Chris picked up on back up vocals, but the overall effect when it's put on CD is really amazing. Shawn himself is an incredibly intelligent guy, maybe not when it comes to his personal health, but mentally, he's all there. If he wasn't in Slipknot, they really wouldn't be who they are today.

Well, I do believe I've spoken my mind....
Let this be a lesson in life.
Don't let boredom take over your soul....
Yeah man i agree with you here.

I definately dont think that Joey is the best metal drummer, of course he isnt. However, joey, chris and clown both contribute to Slipknot, which is one of the biggest metal bands out there at the moment, so you cannot argue their talents.

I think the main reason people dish out Joey because he is in a nu metal band, or they are generally bias against metal. There are plenty of older drumers that are famous in history, theat are not that good. The reason they are popular though, is because they were the first ones to do what everyone does today. So why do they pay out Joey?

Like you said he puts full effort into his drums and Slipknot, and his contribution has helped put Slipknot where they are. He has great talent.

Just because a band is big doesnt mean the musicians are talented. Look at the Rolling Stones, they have been around for 40 years and still suck at playing their instruments. They are popular because they followed the mold of how to get a hit song, and because kids attached to them to rebel against their parents. I am not saying the Joey isnt talented, he is but the clown dude and the other percussionist are just there to layer the sound, nothing else. But are they needed, no. Could Slipknot have the same sound without them, yes.

I think that real metalheads dislike Slipknot more than people who dont like metal to begin with because Slipknot has alot of fans who go around thinking Slipknot are the fastest/heaviest/brutalist metal band around and wont even recognize other metal bands than Slipknot, Metallica, Trivium etc.
