"It's still so fresh..."
In an interview with Minneapolis radio station 93X (via NME, Slipknot's Corey Taylor spoke about drummer Joey Jordison's decision to leave the band. Jordison's departure was revealed last week, with "personal reasons" given as an explanation. The band promised to give fans more information in the future.
He said: "I can't really talk about it right now. It's still so fresh and there's a lot of things going on behind the scenes that people don't know about, so legally and respectfully, I can't say a lot about it. I can confirm that we have parted ways with Joey and as soon as we can say something, we will, but we're trying to protect him, trying to protect us, just making sure that we do everything right because that's what we would expect from ourselves and what we would expect from the fans. I know the fans are chomping at the bit, it's just we can't really say anything right now. It sucks for them and it sucks for us because we have always really prided ourselves in being able to come out and honest with everybody, but there's really nothing we can say right now."
