Read this: 13 times Joey Jordison proved he was the best of the best
The frontman also addressed how Joey hadn't been a member of Slipknot since 2013, reasoning that of course they wouldn't be going into any details about that situation.
"I know a lot of people wonder about the circumstances that led to him not being in the band anymore, and it's like, we're not gonna talk about that, because I'd rather talk about his legacy, which is that he helped create this band that we all have fought to keep out there and keep going," Corey said. "Just the fact that he's not here now, it's still… I still can't believe it."
As a band, Slipknot posted an eight-and-a-half-minute Joey compilation video in July, along with the following tribute: "Our hearts go out to Joey’s family and loved ones at this time of tremendous loss.
"Joey Jordison’s art, talent, and spirit could not be contained or be held back. Joey’s impact on Slipknot, on our lives, and on the music that he loved, is incalculable. Without him there would be no us. We mourn his loss with the entire Slipknot family. We love you, Joey."
