Watch: Former SLIPKNOT Drummer JAY WEINBERG Joins BOUNCING SOULS On Stage In Nashville

Former SLIPKNOT drummer Jay Weinberg joined the BOUNCING SOULS onstage last night (Sunday, December 10) in his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee to perform the final song of the veteran punk rockers set, “True Believers”.

Earlier today, Weinberg took to his social media to share a video of his appearance with the BOUNCING SOULS and he wrote in an accompanying message: “What an absolutely incredible night, seeing one of my all-time favorite bands The BOUNCING SOULS.

“My sincere thanks to @rebelogeorge @bryankienlen @greg_attonito @petesteinkopf for the kind invitation to jam!! It felt amazing to play drums for the first time since my operation; especially this iconic, belief-affirming anthem.

“There’s a story I’ve told many times, perhaps I’ll tell it in greater detail sometime. When I was 14, I was very shy about being a novice drummer. I wanted to keep my new passion for this instrument private — not sharing my progress with anyone, even my immediate family, as I taught myself how to play along with my favorite songs and albums… The SOULS — having been my hometown NJ heroes for some time — were actually the very first people to hear me play drums. They generously invited me to sit in for a song or two at a secret show at @asburylanes in May of 2005, which ended up being the first time I’d ever played drums in front of anyone. It is still to this day the single-most foundational moment of how I’ve come to appreciate and cherish playing drums in a live setting. Endless gratitude to them — of course @mcdermott13 and @bstrakele for being key friends in that event! — for setting me on a path of loving live performance. Last night felt just as electric as that pivotal night in my life, and I’m thankful for the friendship of the SOULS and the wonderful community that surrounds them.

“True Believers, all the way…”

BOUNCING SOULS has released 12 albums over its 30-plus years together and is touring to promote its latest record, “Ten Stories High”.

On November 5, SLIPKNOT released a statement via social media in which it said it had “decided to make a creative decision and to part ways with Jay.”

Six days later, Weinberg, who replaced Joey Jordison, SLIPKNOT‘s original drummer, in 2013, shared on Instagram that he “was heartbroken and blindsided to receive the phone call”, “the news of which, most of you learned shortly after.”

“This is not the ending to the journey I’d dreamt of, and committed myself to seeing through – not by a long shot,” he wrote. “But, despite the confusion and sadness, there is something that’s provided an equal amount of comfort. For many of you reading this: 10 years ago, we weren’t yet acquainted. And now, we are. For that, I’m thankful in ways I’ll never be able to fully express.”

Jay played his final show with SLIPKNOT on November 3 at the Hell & Heaven festival in Toluca, Mexico.

When SLIPKNOT announced Weinberg‘s departure, the band thanked Jay “for his dedication and passion over the past ten years.” The group added: “No one can ever replace Joey Jordison‘s original sound, style or energy, but Jay honored Joey‘s parts and contributed to the last three albums and we, the band, and the fans appreciate it. But as ever, SLIPKNOT is intent on evolving. We wish Jay all the best and are very excited for what the future holds.”

The now-33-year-old Jay discovered SLIPKNOT when he was a pre-teen, through his father, Max Weinberg, of Bruce Springsteen‘s E STREET BAND, and leader of the house band on Conan O’Brien‘s talk show. He was hooked immediately and was a huge fan of SLIPKNOT by the time he was invited to Los Angeles to try out as replacement for Joey Jordison in 2013.

For the first few months after the release of 2014’s “.5: The Gray Chapter”, the members of SLIPKNOT had declined to name the musicians who were playing drums and bass on their tour, despite the fact that their identities were revealed as Weinberg and bassist Alessandro “Vman” Venturella by a disgruntled former drumtech for SLIPKNOT who posted a picture of a backstage call sheet on Instagram.

“.5: The Gray Chapter” went on to score a trio of Grammy nominations, including two for “Best Metal Performance” and a nomination for “Best Rock Album”.

Weinberg also played on 2019’s “We Are Not Your Kind” and 2022’s “The End, So Far”, both of which topped Billboard‘s rock albums chart.

Last month, Weinberg underwent an outpatient procedure to repair the torn labrum of his left hip and shave down a misshapen part of his femur.

What an absolutely incredible night, seeing one of my all-time favorite bands The Bouncing Souls.

“i’ve met some people along the way. some of them split, some of them stay. some of them walk, some walk on by. i’ve got a few friends i’ll love till I die. from all these people, I try to learn. some of them shine, some of them burn. some of them rise, some of them fall. for good or bad, i’ve known them all…”
