Slipknot Joey Jordison News-Drummer died after being diagnosed with transverse myelitis before Corey Taylor Metallica collaboration
Jodison revealed MS disease in 2016
When Jodison accepted the Golden God Award in 2016, he revealed that he had a neuroimmune disease.
“At the end of my Slipknot career, I suffered from a terrible disease called Transverse Myelitis,” Jodison said.
“I lost my legs. I can’t play anymore. This is a form of multiple sclerosis, and I don’t want this to happen to my worst enemy.”
Jodison said he worked hard to recover from the diagnosis.
“I let myself stand up again, I let myself go back to the gym, I let myself go back to the fucking treatment, the fucking king defeated this sh-t.”
“If I can do it, you can do it. This is the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life. It is more important than anything fucking.”
