Drummer. Producer. Songwriter. Guitarist. Visionary. We go behind the mask of multi-talented drum star Joey Jordison to find out about the future of Slipknot, performing with Rob Zombie, resurrecting ghoul rockers Murderdolls and of course topping Rhythm's Greatest Drummer of the Last 25 Years poll, including a personal thanks from Joey to all who voted.

We also get an up-close look at Joey's monster Pearl/Paiste/Remo set-up and pick out our favourite tracks from the metal master's illustrious career so far.
