After website MetalSucks stirred the pot, rumors began circulating that Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler would be the replacement for former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison. Initially, Adler addressed the matter with a bizarre response that only gave the rumors more buzz:
"Right now I think silence is golden. Right now I don't think those guys need me, or need me talking about it. 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. I'm getting texts and emails and phone calls about it. For the moment, I don't know anything about it."
He didn’t "recall" doing it?! What the hell does that mean? Now, Adler has come out with a clearer statement, shutting down the rumors:
"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."
