Before he made it big with Slipknot, Joey Joridson was a regular high schooler in Iowa. A reddit user was browsing his mom's yearbook and happened to spot Jordison, and shared some photos from the yearbook.
Reddit user Quillsilver wrote on the Slipknot subreddit, “Going through my mom’s yearbook when I come across this guy. My mom said he was pretty nice back in [high school]."
In the comments, Quillsilver elaborated on his mom's description, writing “My mom described Joey as nice but he definitely tried to play up the coolness. She said he’d walk around with his drumsticks in his back pocket and would usually greet you with a ‘What’s up dude?’”
