Corey Taylor urges fans to relax regarding future of Slipknot.

Corey Taylor, playing a hometown show last week with Stone Sour gave a review to the Des Moines Register regarding his future with Slipknot. Here is an excerpt:

On whether he is excited to perform with SLIPKNOT again:

"I hope it goes well, I guess, but at the end of the day, it's about [late SLIPKNOT bassist]Paul[Gray] and what he meant to this band and the fans. People need to stop being so overly eager and let us take this one step at a time. I'm not a guy you want to force into a corner. I'll walk away."

On the writing process for STONE SOUR's latest album,"Audio Secrecy":

"I think the real thing that changed for me is how far I was willing to go talking about things I was going through up to that point. I was letting go of the aggression attached to relationships with women, my family and friends. I decided to stop playing it safe and let these dogs loose. At the end of the day it was easier for me to drop the chain and not worry about anyone else's feelings. It was more important to sort out my own."

On his first book,"The Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Goods", which covers topics like his troubled family life growing up, knowing it didn't always present them (or himself) in the best light:

"When you're the main character, you've got to go there. I didn't have the best life growing up, but I don't blame them. I wouldn't be who I am if I didn't go through that. I know I couldn't hold back and had to really go there. That's how I've always written, lyrically, and from the reaction I've seen, people really enjoy that."

Taylor's book comes out in July and can be pre-ordered here:

  1. Man, Corey needs to SHUT THE FUCK UP. Don't threaten us. We all know you are using all this as a scapegoat to end Slipknot. Slipknot has been dead, Corey's got no more creativity for Slipknot. Just call it quits already, faggot.
