Joey Jordison’s Tinnitus Tantrum

Apparently, Joey can explain why he threw his guitar at the drum riser and stormed off stage in France last night.

Not once, but twice.

“Hello to all our fans and friends in France.

“I’m writing to address the situation which took place in Bordeaux on Thursday night.

“As it has been seen in videos online [see below], I threw my guitar and walked off stage.

“I want to clear up what exactly happened.

“I have a condition with my ears called tinnitus, which in my case is very severe, and has been causing me excruciating pain for two years now. That night in Bordeaux, my tinnitus was at an extreme.

“I wanted to come out and play the best show that I could. However, due to technical difficulties, and high-end feedback that persisted in the monitors, the pain within my ears became unbearable. I tried to attempt to play after I walked off the first time but it got worse.

“I’m okay, but I have to watch my ears so as not to cause any permanent damage.

“I want to apologize to the fans in attendance in Bordeaux; I meant no disrespect whatsoever and I hope that my fans understand this.”
