Joey Jordison: 'I've Got So Much Material for Slipknot'
Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has been very busy with his Scar the Martyr side project these days, but is still piling up loads of riffs on the side. During a recent Stereoboard chat, the drummer expressed a positive stance and a genuine desire to constantly work on new music. "My love of music, man," he kicked off. "That's really it. It's a passion of mine, and y'know, I've just been sitting here in the back lounge humming riffs to new songs. My phone is filled with riffs. Y'know, I listen to all this stuff and go back to it. I sound like a moron, just listening to myself humming all these riffs, but it's just so I don't forget 'em! Then I sit there and I translate them onto guitar." Joey continued, "I've got so much material, like it feels as if every day I'm coming up with so many riffs. And even if it doesn't end up working, I can still use it for something else or save it for something else. I'm constantly writing music and keeping myself busy somehow." Slipknot have previously announced plans for a major 2014 comeback, with Shawn "Clown" Crahan recently commenting about writing some of the best music of his life. However, Jordison has also revealed that he is uncertain about the whole matter as he will likely spent most of 2014 on the road with Scat the Martyr.
