Corey Taylor Speaks Out On Velvet Revolver, Slipknot, and Stone Sour

Billobard.com recently conducted an interview with Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor. Here are a few excerpts from the interview:

When asked about rumors he is the new frontman for Velvet Revolver:

"To be continued!" Taylor tells Billboard.com.

Speaking about the future of Slipknot since the death of bandmate Paul Grey:

"I go back and forth," he acknowledges. Though the group has three Sonisphere Festival shows this summer in Europe and is tipped to play at this year's Rock in Rio festival, Taylor says that "there are moments when I'm like, 'Let's keep going for (Gray),' and there are moments when I'm like, 'It's not the same without him.' Right now my main concern is baby steps. We lost a huge piece of our band. We lost a huge member of our family -- in my opinion the biggest -- and it's a different vibe now. So right now I'm just taking it step by step, and I can only hope that the other guys in the band are as well."

About a new Slipknot album, Corey said the following:

"There's a lot of things I've got to figure out about myself before I can even contemplate that," he explains. "There's a big part of me that wonders if I'm the guy for that band anymore. I'm in such a different place in my life...musically, spiritually. I'm not the angry kid anymore. A lot of things don't mean the same to me anymore, and there's a lot of things I don't feel like saying anymore. Does it make sense anymore? We'll just have to see."

Corey also unveiled information about a fourth Stone Sour album being a possibility sooner rather than later:

"We were talking about doing that even before Paul passed away," he says. "It's something we're just kind of throwing around now. It's in its infancy, but we've definitely been talking about making another Stone Sour album."
