Jay Weinberg's got a new mask to wear while rocking out and tending goal.
The drummer for Slipknot unveiled an awesome new band-themed mask he had made for playing goalie on Instagram on Friday.
Weinberg is the son of E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg, and also has toured with Bruce Springsteen's band, Madball and Against Me!. He joined Slipknot, a heavy-metal band whose members are known for their on-stage masks, in 2014.
Weinberg was a guest on former NHL goalie Mike McKenna's podcast, where he dished on the origin of his spectacular mask, painted by Dave Fried of Friedesigns.
"I basically had the mindset where I said 'I play in a band where I wear a mask. I've got to have [his goalie mask] be my Slipknot mask," Weinberg said. "
Weinberg also discussed growing up a fan of the New Jersey Devils, playing goalie for the East Side Hellhounds, his adult-recreation league team, the similarities between goaltending and being a drummer and much more.
"As goalies, we have something in our brains that's just a little bit off that get something out of that pressure," Weinberg said. "I think that translates to drums as well. The drummer has a lot of the same responsibilities that a goaltender does."
