It’s finally happened! We now know without a shadow of a doubt who the new members of Slipknot are! Well, as if there was much doubt to begin with. The evidence was quite convincing in the case of both Jay Weinberg and Alessandro Venturella. Weinberg was ousted by a former bandmate on twitter, and Venturella’s own tattoos betrayed him in Slipknot’s The Devil in I video. It’s no surprise, however, as Corey Taylor has already admitted Venturella’s hand tattoo was a fluke when he said:
"I was, like, 'Why didn't we make him wear gloves?' I was so upset. I was, like, we thought of all this stuff. We put the hood on him and then the mask… And then there is his tattoos for everybody (to see). I was, like, 'Well, we missed the mark on that one.'"
So, it was pretty much confirmed this whole time, but now there is distinctiv e proof from inside the band naming each person. Norm Costa, Weinberg’s drum tech, was recently relieved from his position, or at least if he hasn’t yet, he will be. On his way out, however he managed to post this picture with the tags #blowitup and #fuckslipknot:
There it is, in black and white. Alex Venturella and Jay Weinberg have been confirmed without any shadow a doubt that they’re in the band. Although, the internet being the way that it is, it could still be fake, right? Some guy could have easily just threw something that looked like an itinerary together and printed it out, easily. Well, he posted some photos earlier featuring Weinberg's drum kit itself, adding credibility to him being the drum tech for Slipknot. So, to all those who were denying Weinberg and Venturella were the new members (if there were any left), how's that going for you?
