An interesting, but not very well supported rumor has recently surfaced, claiming that former Against Me!
drummer Jay Weinberg
is joining Slipknot
as a replacement for Joey Jordison
spread the word, noting that Bruce Springsteen
drummer Max Weinberg
's son abruptly quit the band in January without a specific reason, notifying his bandmates only via Twitter.
The source points at the Property of Zach
interview with singer Laura Jane Grace
. Asked about Jay, she replied:
"To be honest, I have no idea. He never said a word. I just woke up one morning and read on Twitter that he was leaving the band. Never talked to him since.
The source article further reads, "It is interesting to know he left that band in 2012, before Joey Jordison was kicked out/parted ways with Slipknot. While we have no evidence to support this rumor we decided to pass it along as we think there is a good possibility this rumor will turn out to be true.
In all fairness, the odds of the rumor being true seem a bit slim at the moment, unless additional info linking Weinberg to Slipknot surfaces at some point. Stay tuned for more info.
