The annual Download festival took place on June 8th, 9th and 10th at Donington Park, England and featured an unprecedented roster of Roadrunner Records acts.
Performing as part of the gargantuan festival, Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison accompanied Korn on drums. This record-breaking performance was Jordison's fifth Download appearance since its inception in 2002, and marks him as the only artist to play the festival multiple times in 4 different high-profile bands. Past Download performances include: Murderdolls (main stage 2002), Slipknot (main stage 2004 & 2005), and a guest appearance with Metallica (main stage 2004). Jordison has been performing with Korn since the departure of drummer David Silveria and states, "when I first heard Korn they blew me away and I have been a fan ever since...I'm looking forward to playing drums with these guys for the next five months!"
Adding to his extensive list of musical accomplishments, Jordison has also been taking on producing duties, most recently working on the forthcoming 3 Inches of Blood release, Fire Up The Blades.
Joey will rejoin his masked brethren in Slipknot later this year to prepare their next album for release in 2008.
