JOEY ‘100% BACK’

Jordi­son back to his best

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

Joey Jordi­son is back to full fit­ness, ac­cord­ing to a new in­ter­view.

The mod­ern metal mae­stro told Me­talWani that it has taken him a long time to re­cover from the health is­sues that have dogged him in re­cent years, but he fi­nally feels back to his best.

“I’m com­pletely, 100 per cent back, stronger than I’ve ever been,” he said. “And I’m not just say­ing that — that sounds like a cheesy f***ing line; I un­der­stand. But it took me a long time, man, to re­cover and get my strength back, be­cause I got hit with some­thing that… I mean, I never felt any­thing like this.”

The ‘this’ that Joey speaks of is, of course, trans­verse myeli­tis, the neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­ease that he was struck with to­wards the end of his ten­ure with Slip­knot.

He has cer­tainly been busy since re­turn­ing to the kit, with two new bands on the go, Sin­saenum and Vimic, and he couldn’t be prouder of his work.

He con­tin­ued: “Be­ing able to be healthy and be­ing able to record these al­bums that you hear — with Sin­saenum and Vimic as well — is just a tes­ti­mony, ’cause I can­not let any­thing beat me when it comes to mu­sic. I have to play. So when you have the power of mu­sic within your soul and your heart, noth­ing can stop you.
