Slipknot’s Corey Taylor: Picture if Henry Rollins, George Carlin + Dave Grohl Were The Same Person
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has made a ton of noise during his ‘Seven Deadly Sins’ book tour, where he shares intimate stories and personal opinions with fans while playing acoustic jams. Taylor recently caught up with MTV’s Headbangers Ball to discuss the tour and his upcoming creative projects.
“I don’t know who lost the bet on that one, but I got to put out my book and it became a New York Times bestseller,” Taylor declared before breaking out into maniacal laughter. “This tour has basically just been half spoken word and half acoustic. Picture if Henry Rollins, George Carlin and Dave Grohl were the same person – not that I’m as cool as any of those three, but I can assume that I am.”
“I come out, I run my mouth, I read from the book and then the rest of the show is all acoustic stuff and it’s been fantastic, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.” Taylor has already used to opportunity to trash producer Rick Rubin and to reveal his dislike for Stone Temple Pilots frontman, Scott Weiland.
Taylor also spoke of an upcoming film production company he’s starting with Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan called ‘Living Breathing Films.’ “We’re going to terrify the youth of America through pure, unadulterated psychological art,” Taylor declared.
After the Christmas break, Taylor plans to work on new Stone Sour demos and hopes to get into the studio sometime in March to begin recording. Slipknot will be invading Australia for the seven-date Soundwave Festival where the band will play alongside acts such as System of a Down, Machine Head and Lamb of God.
Never fear America, Taylor promises that Slipknot will begin tearing apart our country piece-by-piece in the summer of 2012 for a national tour.
