Corey Taylor of Slipknot Talks Music, Acting, Touring and More With Johnnie and Ned
It's always a good day when you get the chance to talk with Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Stone Sour. The guy is always so busy with so many different things, the only problem is being able to talk about all of them in a short amount of time!
Corey called to talk about his new Slipknot single, 'KillPop', the latest Stone Sour covers EPs the band is finishing up, his work in Clown's first movie, working with Robert England in 'Fear Clinic', and more!
He even told us a little about the craziest thing he's ever autographed, and it happened to be something from the parking lot of The Orbit Room here in Grand Rapids!
"The parking lot of the Orbit Room was the place where I signed the weirdest thing I have ever signed in my whole career. And because we're on the radio, in polite company, I can't tell you exactly what it was, but let's just say that it gave me a weird memory, albeit a fond memory, but still a weird memory of Grand Rapids, Michigan!"
He talked about the early days of Slipknot's touring, and their appearance on Ozzfest, which spoiled them for touring.
"That was a great tour, man, it was such a great learning experience, and honestly, it didn't really set us up well for the next handful of tours that we had, because we were so taken care of. There was food, there were bathrooms, there were places to hang out, and so we were like, 'Dude, touring's gonna rule!'
And then we jumped on the Coal Chamber tour, and then it was like, 'Okay, now I have to use the Dunkin Donuts bathroom again!'"
