Joey’s in­spi­ra­tional

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Thanks for a great is­sue with Joey Jordi­son on the cover this month. He is one of my favourite play­ers and I was per­son­ally gut­ted when he left Slip­knot. It’s great to see him back though andI didn’t re­alise that he’d been quite ill, and that was one of the rea­sons we haven’t heard too much from him lately. An in­spir­ing story since he’s back and as good as ever – and al­though it’s a much less se­ri­ous thing I my­self have had to bat­tle back to ‘match fit­ness’ af­ter get­ting in­jured a few years back. I can re­late to Joey’s de­ter­mi­na­tion not to give up; that thought of ‘I’m never go­ing to drum again’ didn’t even en­ter my head ei­ther, and I’m sure any drum­mer feels the same. Once a drum­mer al­ways a drum­mer! So any­one out there who’s fac­ing phys­i­cal ob­sta­cles to their play­ing for what­ever rea­son, don’t give up! Keep up the good work, Rhythm, still a great read ev­ery month! Si­mon Wat­tle, via Face­book Thanks Si­mon, I agree that as drum­mers we area unique breed and it’ s to some de­gree‘ in our blood’ to be drum­mer s–I know there area lot of guys out there strug­gling for what­ever rea­son due to ill­ness or in­jury but who aren’ t go­ing to give up their life dream of play­ing drums. Joey is a top guy and a fan­tas­tic player, and we were hon­oured to have his words of wis­dom in Rhythm last month, and we hope what he had to say can help more play­ers out­there!–CBu
