"We're not saying who the new drummer is. Even if people find out beyond a shadow of a doubt who the new drummer is, I think we're always going to deny who it is. He might not last. He might tour with us a year and figure out we're all insane and he can't handle being around us. Or we might shut him out."
Norm Costa, who worked in the music business for over two decades as the drum tech for Slayer's Dave Lombardo and Brann Dailor of Mastodon among others, showed his personal itinerary, which lists Slipknot's new drummer as Jay Weinberg, son of drummer Max Weinberg.
Norm also posted an unmanned drum set on Instagram with the hashtags #jayweinberg #slipknot #newdrummer #fuckslipknot.
Jay Weinberg was previously in the punk band Agains Me! and apparently left under less-than-friendly circumstances. In September Agains Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace added credence to circulating rumors about Slipknot's new sticksman when she tweeted: "Dear Slipknot, good luck with that. #shitbag."
