SLIPKNOT is nominated in both “Best Rock Album” (“.5: The Gray Chapter”) and “Best Metal Performance” (“Custer”) categories at the 58th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on February 15 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
Weinberg is the son of Bruce Springsteen drummer Max Weinberg.
SLIPKNOT announced its split with drummer Joey Jordison in December 2013 but did not disclose the reasons for his exit. The drummer subsequently issued a statement saying that he did not quit the group.
Weinberg was previously in the punk band AGAINST ME! and left under less-than-friendly circumstances.
