Slipknot - Jordison's Head-splitting Tinnitus Forces Him Offstage

SLIPKNOT star JOEY JORDISON stormed offstage during a MURDERDOLLS show in France on Thursday night (27Jan11) when his tinnitus became too painful to bear.
The guitarist hurled his guitar to the floor and walked off during the gig in Bordeaux.
He has since gone online to explain his actions, stating, "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."
Jordison has apologised to French fans, insisting, "I meant no disrespect whatsoever".
