Slipknot drummer
Jay Weinberg has discussed the pressure he felt when replacing
original drummer Joey Jordison in the band.

Weinberg replaced Jordison ahead of the release of the band’s
2014 album ‘.5: The Gray Chapter’.

Speaking to Spain’s The Metal Circus, Weinberg
spoke of his first experiences of joining the band. “I wouldn’t
say I was walking on eggshells. For me, I understood my role in the
context of a band changing its dynamic dramatically, working on new
songs without two of its founding members [Jordison and late
bassist Paul Gray].

“That was huge for a band that had, at this point, existed
almost 20 years or something. It wasn’t like walking on
eggshells, ’cause I knew the role that I was coming in to
play.”

“I haven’t been in this band as long as they have, so it was
a lot of learning,” Weinberg added. “And still, to this day, I
approach this band with open eyes and open ears, ’cause I think
every day, I’m learning more and more. And every day, I think, as
an individual and perhaps as a collective, we get closer and closer
to understanding the potential of what the band really has.

“I had a lot to bring and a lot to prove — not to an
audience,” he added. “I didn’t concern myself with that,
because I can’t control that — I can’t control how a
listening audience is going to accept new Slipknot songs that are
my first songs playing with the band or whatever; I can’t control
how anybody’s gonna react to that. But I had a lot to prove to
myself, I had a lot to prove to my new bandmates, that, for
whatever reason, they were drawn to my playing and that I was asked
to be a part of their band for a reason.”


Joey Jordison recently shared his memories of Slipknot’s classic
1999 debut album
as the band celebrated 21 years of the record.
“It’s almost hard to believe how these years have flown by like
blast beats,” he wrote. “That album was [and] will always be
some of the absolute best memories of my life.”

Slipknot released
new album ‘We Are Not Your Kind’
in 2019, and
won Best Band In The World at the NME Awards 2020
earlier this
year.
