PostSubject: Slipknot's Joey Jordison to sell drumsticks signed with his blood   Sun May 10, 2009 3:42 am

Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has penned a drum stick endorsement deal with a unique twist - each set of sticks is signed with his own blood!

Pro-Mark is proud to announce that Joey Jordison, drummer for the Grammy Award winning heavy metal powerhouse, Slipknot, has joined Pro-Mark’s impressive roster of Autograph Series artists.

The TX515W Joey Jordison model is .551” (14mm) in diameter, and 16” long. Made of American Hickory, the TX515W is based on the popular 777 design but slightly shorter in length. The round wood tip provides exceptional articulation, power and consistency. The diameter is the same as the company’s best-selling 5A, so it is a practical stick as well, that should enjoy universal appeal. A Japanese oak version (PW515) of the same stick will be made available at a later date.

The stick features the tribal S that all Slipknot fans have come to know and love as well as Joey’s number “1.” The red ink on the sticks has even been mixed with Joey’s blood!

Said Joey of the sticks, “The first wood stick I ever played was a Pro-Mark, so I’m thrilled to be joining the family! To show everyone just how serious I am about my new signature 515s, I’ve even gone as far as putting my own blood in the ink for them. It's not just my signature on these sticks, it's me.”

Fans got to witness Joey playing the sticks for the first time on the band’s recent sold out ALL HOPE IS GONE headline arena tour in the United States. The band is set to hit the road later this month in Canada and the Midwest, and they head to Europe this June to headline some of the biggest festivals in the world, including Download, Roskilde, Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park, among others!

Personally, I wouldn't do it because of the Kiss reference. Just because it was years ago doesn't mean we have forgotten Evil or Very Mad

Yeah, but I'd guess the typical slipknot fan isn't aware of the Kiss link. I'd guess they didn't even think the masks and costumes is related to Kiss either...

The youth of today! lol!
