COREY TAYLOR: 'If You Don't Leave Something Behind That's Worth Sh*t Then Why Even Do It?'

Posted By: Burningpoop
Date: 11 May 2007
The Sydney Morning Herald recently conducted an interview with STONE SOUR/SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor. A few excerpts follow:

On being concerned with STONE SOUR's connection to an alcoholic concoction:

"It's a very unfortunate drink whiskey, sour and orange juice and it's quite gross it's never on our rider. We look at it like the METALLICA syndrome. At the end of the day METALLICA doesn't mean anything as a word but as a band and a body of music it means everything. That's the way we look at it, we define it by the music we make."

On an early attempt by the band at a clever promotion that backfired:

"The second show we ever did we had this stupid idea to basically set up a deal at the bar for dollar STONE SOUR shots. We all did one before the show and we almost puked. It was like, 'Wow, this was really not a good idea.' Of course they only sold five at the end of the gig and all five were to the people in the band. It was a lesson learned we try and get as far away from that connotation as possible."

On why he resurrected STONE SOUR in 2002:

"I wanted to do something different and SLIPKNOT was so different to anything I'd ever done. But there was a sense of diversity that kind of got weeded out when we did the first two [SLIPKNOT] albums. I think that's why I started looking around for something different, right around the Iowa album. Luckily, STONE SOUR was here. Now I've got both."

On letting SLIKNOT and STONE SOUR run side by side:

"You lose a lot of sleep; you're not always that healthy but at the end of the day it's worth it. My whole thing in this business is legacy; the money can come and go, the fans are great but at the end of the day if you don't leave something behind that's worth s--- then why even do it? I hope that's what I'm doing."
