Of the win, Jordison tells the publication:
“I’m at a loss for words. To my friends and fans across the world, thank you, this is beyond unbelievable! Something like this reminds me everyday why I continue to do this. It’s because of all of you that I’m very passionate and still love what I do. My fans continue to push me, if I didn’t have them I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.
This is bigger than a Grammy to me! You people keep me alive, I can’t thank all of you enough. To all the Rhythm staff, thank you, you are amazing! Thank you to my family, friends, all the amazing drummers I was in company with, without them I wouldn’t be here either and last but not least, all my brothers in Slipknot! Thank you all again!”
While Jordison took the top spot, he was in great company with Dream Theater’s Mike Portnoy in second place, and Porcupine Tree’s Gavin Harrison in third. For the full list check out Rhythm’s 20 Greatest Drummers Of The Last 25 Years gallery.
