Jordison surprised by Slipknot departure
Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has spoken out over his departure from the band, insisting he did not leave of his own choice.

And although he stops short of saying he was fired, he admits he was "blindsided" by the move.

Fans were stunned last month when it was announced co-founder Jordison had "parted ways" with the band for "personal reasons." Frontman Corey Taylor later admitted to frustration over the situation, saying: "Legally and respectfully, I can't say a lot about it. We're trying to protect him, protect us - just making sure we do everything right. It?s difficult."

Now Jordison, who recently toured the UK with side-project Scar The Martyr, says: ?I would like to start the New Year by addressing the recent rumours and speculation regarding my departure from Slipknot.
