Friday Rockstar Blogging - Iowa Style!

Today's featured rockstar is Joey Jordison of the only famous band from Iowa: Slipknot. Jordison's bio is via DRUMMERWORLD. (I didn't realize until now that I'm taller than he is.)

Date of Birth: 26th April, 1975, Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa
Plays: Drums (and Guitar!)
Height: 5"5

Wears: His mask is a white japanese expressionless kabuki mask, now painted with black scars and fake Blood. He has long black hair with vivid red-steaks.
He's the most talkative member of the group
He is also the creator of the tribal S symbol for the band.
Joey is Known for being one of the fastest drummers in metal history.
He was one of the original members of Slipknot, and drummed for MFKR
Rip's off the arms and legs of his suit, because its easier to drum.
He's talkitive, diminutive, and just really down to earth.
He writes a lot of their songs, including Scissors.
He mixed the self titled album.
He created the term "Maggot" for a slipknot fan...
Doesn't do drugs
First Record Ever Bought: 'Kiss Alive'
Musical Heroes: Fantomas, KISS, Slayer, Venom, Mercyful fate, Misfits, Mike Patton,Melvins.
The First concert he ever saw was Kiss on the "Asylum" tour
Is a big fan of Fleetwood Mac...actually he listens to Fleetwood Mac every night before going to sleep
Joey's first job was as sales associate at a retail record store in West Des Moines.
Before Slipknot, Joey played in a band called Modifidious with Craig.
When asked to describe himself in three words, he replied: "Introvert, quiet and attentive", yet others say he is quite talkitive...
In his opinion, Black Sabbath was the most heavy metal band ever.
Hobbies: "It is pretty much covered by music 24/7. Aside from that, maybe video games, sleeping and sex"
Bands played/plays in: "Anal Blast","Modifidious", "The Rejects"

Joey worked at a record store called "Music Land" and a gas station called "Sinclair's" he worked at the garage 4 nights a week for 10 hours after being tempted by a friend to get a job there. Joey likes to wear a black hood that says on it "Little People Kill People". The Tribal "S" that is now the slipknot logo, was originally drawn by Joey, Joey also drew the main Slipknot logo, and the big "K" and "T" may come from the fact that at that time he was a HUGE KoRn fan.

uhh i dont think joey is one of the fastest drummers in metal history... im a BIG fan of slipknot and theres 2 other drummers that play the fast parts. I might be wrong but thats just what i think...
Actually I think you're right. I was quoting DRUMMERWORLD in my post. I like Jordison's stuff, but there are other drummers who are faster *and* cleaner. He is good, though. I like his playing on part of Otep's "House of Secrets".
Whoa Whoa Whoa!!!....Im pretty sure Three Dog Night is from Iowa too! Let it be known!
