Joey Jordison played with fucking everyone. In addition to co-founding Slipknot, the late drummer sat behind the kit on tours with Korn, Rob Zombie and Ministry, played a special one-off show with Metallica in 2004, and made a litany of on-stage guest appearances over the years.
One of those special moments went down on February 29th, 2012, when Jordison strutted out during a System of a Down set and crushed the drums while the band played their longtime fan favorite, "Suite-Pee."
As you can see in fan-captured footage from the show at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, SOAD invited the world-class drummer behind their kit and promptly launched into the pulverizing "Suite-Pee," one of the heavier standouts from their 1998 self-titled debut.
Naturally, Jordison's aggressive drumming approach was a perfect fit for the minute-and-a-half burner, and the dude didn't miss a note. What's more, SOAD's actual drummer, John Dolmayan, didn't sit around twiddling his thumbs. Instead, he took the opportunity to stage-dive into the crowd and swim on top of people's bodies while his bandmates cranked through the song with their special guest.
It looked like a total ball, and you can watch it all happen above via YouTube.
