Damn this sucks. I met him twice. He'd done 2 different signings in my city. Seemed he enjoyed doing his bit for the fans. So thank you 🙏
It’s just seems weird that both Joey and Paul are now gone. They were the backbone rhythm section of their best albums.

R.I.P Joey! Thank you for being such an inspiration. I started playing drums when I was 13 because of Slipknot's self-titled album. Thank you! Be at peace.
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.

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 😞

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 🤘

Utterly heartbroken! RIP JOEY! You will be missed greatly! 💕🙏😭
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
