Slipknot`s Joey Jordison polled best drummer

London: Joey Jordison who is famous for simultaneously playing two bass drums, has been voted the best drummer in the last 25 years in a UK poll.

Jordison plays with masked metal band Slipknot.

Jordison was competing with Nirvana and Foo Fighters` Dave Grohl and Phil Collins in the poll conducted by UK magazine Rhythm.

The 35-year-old said he was "at a loss for words".

"This is beyond unbelievable. Something like this reminds me every day why I continue to do this," the BBC quoted him as saying.

Second on the poll, which drew 100,000 votes, was Mike Portnoy of US prog-metal band Dream Theater and third spot was Gavin Harrison of Hemel Hempstead rockers Porcupine Tree.

Chris Barnes, editor of Rhythm praised Jordison`s "mind-blowing technicality and ability to bolster any project with his unique sound and style".
