我不知道这封信能不能传达给任何人,一个真正读到这封信的人,一个和乔伊很亲近的人。我只是想说,我甚至无法想象这个我从未见过的人对我的生活有多大的影响。乔伊对音乐的热情和奉献精神是大家共有的。在我成长的过程中,这9个戴着恐怖面具,穿着连体衣的家伙就是我救格蕾丝的人。如果没有这支乐队,我不知道我会在哪里,尤其是乔伊。他所拥有的纯粹而原始的天赋,在我成长的过程中激发了我的一些东西。我崇拜乔伊对音乐包括他自己在内的一切事物的态度、才华和谦逊。我是听着Slipknot长大的,我的第一场演唱会就是Slipknot。我第一次去跳狂舞,为了能在舞台前面看到真实的乔伊,为了能在他出现的时候接近他,我被击倒了。真他妈美梦成真了。 I only saw Slipknot play 3 times & each time Joey was on those fucking drums you truly witnessed an absolute legend. Joey was a true master of his craft, he was an innovator and changed the game, his influence and inspiration has created a generation of drummers who have learned & aspired to be like Joey. I am in disbelief at how much someone I’ve never met has affected me. Joey influenced my life in ways I can’t describe. His music and talent have saved my life more than one time. My heart feels incredibly heavy when I think about how much he had accomplished but sad because of all he was yet to do. My heart is with the family and loved ones of Joey. The only comfort I have, is found in the quote “We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will”. Joey’s legacy and contributions to the music and metal world will continue to live forever, and that is something to be celebrated. Joey, thank you for saving my life in more ways than one. Thank you for giving me something to believe in and something to hold on to. Joey, Rest In Power, we’ll take it from here.
