I saw the title of the video and my jaw dropped…. Such a tragic loss. Wow. Playing Slipknot for the rest of the day.
My biggest Influence, Idole and the Greatest Of All Time …. I‘m heartbroken.
I wish he had his reunion with Slipknot at least for one show. I had the feeling his life energy plug was pulled when Slipknot fired hin so ruthlessly. He was a legend and treated like shit by his former brothers. That shit hurts a lot and is not easy to get over.
Rest In Peace

I just wish Joey could've gotten his reunitation with Slipknot if even for 1 show. He really wanted that😔
It’s just seems weird that both Joey and Paul are now gone. They were the backbone rhythm section of their best albums.

For once, I actually WANT to know what Corey Taylor thinks about this.

RIP Joey.
I remember watching a drum cam of Joey performing Eyeless years ago and I instantly fell in love with his playing. He got me into drumming and will always be a top for me. It’s hard to believe… rest in power Jordison 🤘
I can’t believe this man

This honestly breaks my heart. Joey made mad music with Slipknot that gave my life a soundtrack for years. It brings tears to my eyes when a very vital part of that passes away.

RIP Joey Jordison, a gifted, talented guy, gone too soon...
He came to my friend's rock show in Des Moines in 2002...a down to earth guy no matter the success...RIP
He’s getting piggy back rides from our creator by now.

Rest easy Joey<3
I literally just don't have words for this. 💔. My condolences and thoughts are with the family.
Slipknot would have never existed, if it weren't for Joey.
He's sharing drum tricks with The Rev now. RIP Joey 🙏 I'll be jamming Slipknot hard the next few days.
Paul and Joey are jamming in Heaven now 🥀🖤

Now I can't watch a single video of Paul or Joey without even shedding a tear, hopefully they have a memorial tour/concert specially for Joey, just like how they did one for Paul back in 2010/11 😞
No, this can’t be real.

Another one gone too soon, Rest In Peace Joey.

Damn man. His drumming was the first thing I ever heard in the metal genre.
Definitely one of the GOATs in drums, damn this sucks and prayers to the family and the band 😢
Matt Middleton
Matt Middleton:
I understand bands have departures with members, but the fact that slipknot just blacked out their social media pictures for Joey as a tribute was upsetting. They should have gave him some sort of respect for him. Especially when Joey made slipknot bigger than Corey's neck

He is one of us. A true fan. That's why we connect with him so well . Rest well Joey and we will always remember you

Death took joey in his sleep. He's earned his rest. Thank you for the music and memories joey. We'll keep you in our hearts and I'll keep your legacy alive whenever I blast the Iowa album.
Was just watching a drum teacher react to his playing last week. Joey has been an inspiration to me and thousands of others over the decades. Such sad news, so young, gone too soon, one of the best. Rip Joey 🙏🏼🤘🏼

I remember seeing Joey playing "The Heretic Anthem" on "Disasterpieces" when I was 13 or 14 and being blown away ... from then on, he really changed the way I looked at drumming

Not only did he inspire a whole new generation of kick-ass drummers, he co-founded one of the greatest bands (in my opinion) to ever exist

He's going to be sadly missed and the world is going to be a different place without him

Rest in peace, Joey 🤘

46 is no age to pass away. He was millions of peoples’ drumming idol growing up. I grew out of him being my favorite drummer as I’ve gotten older, but he was always a big part as to why I started playing drums.. sad

Another drumming legend dies in his sleep only three years after Vincent Abbott died the same way.
My heart dropped into my stomach when I saw this in my notifications. I never saw this coming. This is so damn sad.

Rest in peace Joey, cheers to you for your endless talent, dedication, and heart.
I'm in such disbelief. To loose another awesome rocker, especially in the Metal World is heartbreaking. Peace be with his family and Joey, may you RIP. ❤️
