Rock, pop, jazz, and R&B music would sound pretty limp without a drum beat. That's why drummers are often one of the most popular members of the band. But who's the best drummer out there, the supremo on the skins, the one who hits hardest and fastest?
Sadly, one of the greats has recently passed away at a young age. A statement from his family revealed that Slipknot drummer, Joey Jordison, died on July 26 at the age of 46. Although the cause of death was not made public, they said that he "passed away peacefully in his sleep." Within hours of the announcement, Slipknot posted a simple black image across its social media pages. Jordison was a founding member of the band in the 1990s, co-writing many of their songs and carrying their heavy, agressive sound with his brutal rhythms. He remained a key member of the band until he left in 2013, moving on to other bands like Scar the Martyr and Sinsaenum.
