Former Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg has shared the results of his recovery process. Shortly after after being fired from Slipknot in November 2023, he went through surgery on both his hip and femur.

Earlier this monthWeinberg revealed he was walking on his own without the aid of crutches.

His latest update came in the form of a shared a video montage of himself behind the kit practicing, besides showing some physical therapy exercises that are part of his recovery process.

He said:

Two months! 👊🏻🔥

Now we’re talking. It’s been two months since I underwent surgery to repair & reattach my left hip labrum and shave down part of excess femur bone. I’m so excited to move into the second phase of my recovery — no longer just stabilizing and protecting the joint, but building back strength and getting back to my favorite activities.

It’s still a slow and steady physical therapy process, but it’s incredibly encouraging that my team has cleared me to start playing drums again — much earlier than I had originally expected.

Feeling awesome. Thank you all for your continued good vibes and messages of support, it’s sincerely appreciated. 🖤
