Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg spoke with Sick Drummer magazine in a recent interview he shared on YouTube, and revealed some interesting facts about the band.
First, he talked about his possible longevity in Slipknot and said:
“I wanna be with Slipknot as long as I possibly can. These are the best musicians in the world.
I’ve had the best time creating with the guys. Now having done two records together, I can’t wait to see what the future holds. So, of course, I really wanna push this into the future, for sure.”
He also talked on hardest parts of being in Slipknot, and said:
“Touring is hard, but it’s hard like anything hard. Anything that you commit yourself to entirely, a hundred percent, every night of every week of every month of the year, that becomes difficult. But at the same time, we’re really fortunate to have the opportunity that this band has grown to a certain size that’s completely larger than itself.
And I’m blessed to have the opportunity to play with this band. It’s something I don’t take for granted; it’s something that I commit myself to every night. And as far as the toll it takes? That happens, but I feel good. I think the music keeps us all very… it gets us, day-to-day. The only reason we’re here is for the music, and for the fans – and for us.
This is where we get to tap into what we love to do the most, and we love sharing it with the people who’ve been so passionate about this band for 20 years. So all that coming together makes it easy to get from day to day. As difficult as every day is, that makes it really easy.”
