    JORDISON WAS OPEN TO A REUNION WITH SLIPKNOT

    Jordison said he would have been willing to do a reunion tour with Slipknot had they asked.

    "Honestly, I’m not trying to be dramatic, but if that was brought up, what I’d want to do would be to get together."

    “I’d want to see them, just hug it out and feel that energy that we had when we were f—ing young and hungry and all that s-t.

    “They’re my brothers. We’d hug and talk and do s–t like we used to do. We used to sit up all night along planning this s–t and what we wanted to do. So that’s how I’d wanna do it.

    “It’d have to be in person. If it happened, that would be f—ing awesome, but only time will tell.”

    SLIPKNOT'S FIRING WAS "COWARDLY"

    Jordison called Slipknot's firing of himself as a "cowardly" action that did little to honor what he did for the band since confounding it.

    “I’ve been through so many things with those guys and I love them very much. What’s hurtful is the way it went down was not f–king right.

    “That’s all I want to say. They way they did it was fucking cowardly. It was f—d up.”

    “They got confused about my health issues and obviously even I didn’t know what it was at first. They thought I was f—ed up on drugs, which I wasn’t at all.

    JORDISON NOT THE FIRST SLIPKNOT MEMBER TO DIE

    The first member of the band Slipknot to pass away was not Joey Jordison but rather bassist Paul Gray, who died of a morphine overdose in 2010.

    In addition to playing for Slipknot, Jordison played guitar for the band Murderdolls, drums for Scar the Martyr, and was most recently playing drums for Sinsaenum before passing.

    While he was still a member of Slipknot, the band reached spots in the top 10 of Billboard's 200.

    It went on to reach the number one spot for the album All Hope is Gone in 2008.

    WHEN DID JORDISON START SLIPKNOT?

    Jordison formed the metal band in 1995 in his native state of Iowa.

    He cofounded the band with bassist Paul Gray and percussionist Shawn Crahan, and was with them until 2013 when the band said they parted ways with Jordison.

    Jordison later claimed he was fired from the band in an interview in 2016.

    Jordison announced he was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, a form of MS, just as he left the band.

    “I lost my legs. I couldn't play anymore. It was a form of multiple sclerosis, which I don't wish on my worst enemy.”

    Jordison said he worked to recover from the diagnosis.

    “I got myself back up, and I got myself in the gym, and I got myself back in f-cking therapy to fucking beat this sh-t.”

    “And if I could do it, you could do it. It's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, more than f-cking anything."
