In 2011, a Facebook page was launched petitioning 'Saturday Night Live' to bring in Slipknot as a musical guest. It's hard to believe that the metal phenoms have never graced the 'SNL' stage, as they've brought the hate to 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' in the past, along with multiple appearances on 'Conan' and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'
Stone Sour have given us part of the story with 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1,' and soon we'll be able to finish the story with the 'House of Gold & Bones Part 2' disc. Giving fans an idea of what's to come, frontman Corey Taylor has offered a track-by-track commentary on the upcoming disc.
Corey Taylor, who has been balancing his time lately between Stone Sour and Dave Grohl's 'Sound City Players' shows, may have a chance to address both when he makes the trip to Austin, Texas, later this month for the South by Southwest Music Conference. Taylor has signed on to host one of the artist discussions during the music week.
Stone Sour's 'House of Gold & Bones' period of their career is becoming more and more impressive as its multidimensional aspects continue to be revealed through various mediums. Along with the concept taking form of a double album, 'House of Gold & Bones' is taking shape as a four-issue comic book series created by frontman Corey Taylor. Pieces of the first and second comic have already been revealed, and Loudwire is proud to premiere a terrifying taste of issue No. 1 along with a pair of covers for issue No. 3.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were held last night (Feb. 10), and it was business as usual for the famed awards show. Music's biggest names walked the carpet, while shiny golden gramophones were given out to rock artists such as the Black Keys, Halestorm and Trent Reznor + Atticus Ross. However, a sense of disarray resonated with various musicians, who took to Twitter in order to vent their disapproval of the Grammy Awards.
After detailing the latest on Stone Sour in Part 1 of our video interview, vocalist Corey Taylor takes us behind the mask to discuss the future of Slipknot in Part 2 of our exclusive chat. Though Taylor is currently focusing on Stone Sour, he offered us a timeline as to when Slipknot may get back into the studio to record their much anticipated follow-up to 2008's 'All Hope Is Gone.'
Dave Grohl had perhaps the biggest and most impressive celebration for his 'Sound City' film to date, with one rocker after another lining up to take the stage as part of his Sound City Players performance at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles Thursday night (Jan. 31). The gig followed a red-carpet premiere of the Grohl-directed documentary.
