SLIPKNOT’s JAY WEINBERG Spoke With Zildjian

SLIPKNOT drummer Jay Weinberg spoke with Zildjian while out on tour with the band this past summer. He discussed getting into drumming, being a Zildjian artist, and what his current setup is.

SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor recently said that his band’s refusal to officially reveal the identities of its new drummer and bassist for much of the last year was partly done out of respect to SLIPKNOT‘s original drummer, Joey Jordison, who was fired from the group in 2013.

Although fans had more or less deduced the musicians’ identities from clues last year, SLIPKNOT had been trying to keep their names off the record until this past July when he openly spoke about them during an appearance on the “Talk Is Jericho” podcast.

In an interview with Eddie Trunk for the SiriusXM satellite radio show “Eddie Trunk Live“, Taylor was asked if SLIPKNOT was still keeping the identities of its newest members — Jay Weinberg and bassist Alessandro “Vman” Venturella — a secret.

“Everybody knows, but we’ve just kind of let it be,” Taylor responded. “‘Cause everybody was so up our ass to say who [our new drummer] was, and it was, like, you’re missing the point. You’re missing the point. Listen to us. It’s not about him. it’s about us. It’s not about any individual person. That’s why we kept it such arm’s length for the longest time. But people know that it’s Jay, people know that [our new bassist is] Alex. It’s out there. But because we let the music do the talking, it stopped being an issue. So it was kind of cool to see that reaction and see how it kind of turned on itself. People just stopped caring. It was just, like, who cares [who they are], individually? It’s SLIPKNOT again. And that was the whole point… And plus, a lot of it was out of respect for Joe. We parted ways for our reasons, and it was reasons that people really didn’t need to know about. So, for us, out of respect to him, out of respect to Jay, at the time, we were, like, ‘Look, we’re continuing on, and this is how we’re doing it. It doesn’t matter why. This is what we’re doing.'”
