More on Slipknot
Weinberg, who has been a longtime fan of the band, has been their drummer since 2014 after auditioning to replace Joey Jordison.
He previously spoke about how when he was a child, he got the opportunity to go backstage at one of the band’s gigs to meet them. Recently, he recreated the photo from that day at the same venue it was taken at.
He posted the photo of him with his dad talking to guitarist Jim Root at the band’s show in Holmdel, New Jersey, at PNC Bank Arts Center. The three men recreate two photos almost exactly, except both Root and Weinberg have updated their masks. He captioned it “time is a flat circle.” You can see the heartwarming post here.
The band recently wrapped up their North American Knotfest tour, which included an insane setlist. They have a handful of U.S. festival dates remaining this year including Louder Than Life in Louisville Sept. 27 and Aftershock Festival in Sacramento Oct. 11.
Slipknot will wrap up the year outside of the U.S. in Australia, South America, United Kingdom and more. They also just released a stacked lineup for the Mexico and Colombia Knotfest, which you can check out here.
