HEAVY METAL HEAVEN

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

I’m a huge fan of your magazine and have en­joyed read­ing about my big­gest in­flu­ences, Buddy Rich and John Bon­ham to name two. But I loved the March is­sue with Joey Jordi­son the most asI have fol­lowed his work from the very first Slip­knot al­bum which was re­leased when I was 15 and just started learn­ing drums in high school.

My son at two years old would ha­rass me to put on the Joey solo from ‘Disas­ter­pieces’ and he would pre­tend he was Joey play­ing the drums! My son is now 13 learn­ing drums and is also in­spired. To read about Joey’s strug­gles with his health and get­ing back be­hind the drums is very in­spir­ing, as I too had to deal with health prob­lems (torn AC L, nowhere near as bad as his is­sues) and af­ter three months of physio it was an awe­some feel­ing get­ting back be­hind the drums af­ter a set-back. He is in­cred­i­bly tal­ented, very hum­ble and a very ver­sa­tile drum­mer, as for any­one to be able to play Frost’s drum­ming in Satyri­con shows great tal­ent, as his drum­ming is epic.

I’m also a huge fan of black metal and love Sin­saenum and also big fan of Vimic. My son and I look for­ward to hear­ing the new tunes from our fave drum­mer. Keep up the good work!

Re­ally pleased that you and your son are both en­joy­ing heavy mu­sic, Lisa! Joey is re­ally one of the gr eats of mod­ern metal, and his story is pretty in­spi­ra­tional. And Frost–there’ s an­other amaz­ing drum­mer, for sure…
