Possibly some backtracking by the band? Not sure. The original post has been taken down. I'll be over here with some popcorn....
[The statement is still up in the "News" section of their official website. A similar thing happened back in June when keyboardist Craig Jones was booted from the band, as they posted it on their social media and then removed the posts shortly afterwards.]
Slipknot have parted ways with longtime drummer Jay Weinberg, as just announced on social media.
Jay played his final show with SLIPKNOT this past Friday (November 3) at the Hell & Heaven festival in Toluca, Mexico.
He is the son of longtime Bruce Springsteen drummer Max Weinberg. He toured as a drummer with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, substituting for his father in 2009.
