Former Slipknot star Joey Jordison is still sore about his dismissal from the band after revealing his diagnosis with a rare disease.
The drummer's departure in December, 2013 was shrouded in secrecy with his bandmates citing "personal reasons" for his exit.
Jordison recently revealed all about his health crisis, a rare form of multiple sclerosis, while accepting a lifetime achievement prize at the Golden Gods Awards in London, explaining he almost lost his legs.
He paid tribute to his former bandmates at the ceremony, but in a new interview with Metal Hammer magazine he admits he was "shocked and blindsided" when he was ousted from the group he co-founded.
"(There was) no band meeting? None," he explained. "Anything from management? No, nothing. All I got was a stupid f**king email saying I was out of the band that I busted my a** my whole life to f**king create."
He claims his bandmates mistook his ailments for a drug abuse problem, adding, "They got confused about my health issues and obviously even I didn't know what it was at first. They thought I was f**ked up on drugs, which I wasn't at all."
But he hasn't given up on his old bandmates, telling Metal Hammer he was a fan of the group's first album without him - 2014's 5: The Gray Chapter - and he's not against rejoining the band.
Jordison admits he overcame the disease with the help of therapy and exercise and he is now playing in the bands Vimic and Sinsaenum.
