Lamb of God’s Chris Adler Addresses Rumors that He Plays on Slipknot’s “The Negative One”
Since Slipknot ousted drummer Joey Jordison, the band has not revealed the identity of their new drummer. A rumor has been going around that it is Lamb of God’s Chris Adler (pictured left), based on the drumming heard on Slipknot’s new song “The Negative One.”
Adler recently spoke to ABC News Radio saying, “Right now I think silence is golden. Right now I don’t think those guys need me, or need me talking about it.”
He continued, “You know, I listened to it and I thought it sounded a little bit like me, too. At the moment, I just don’t recall doing it.”
Listen to Slipknot’s “The Negative One” below and tell us–is it Adler or someone else?
UPDATE: On August 14, Chris Adler posted the following clarification to his above statements on his official Facebook page: “I’ve received even more questions about my involvement with Slipknot since the ABC interview I did recently. The interview was originally about my new whiskey bar, but of course took a turn into the gossip of the day. As I told her, I’ve had and have nothing to do with it. I’m flattered with the association and comparisons, but I have no involvement in their record.”
