Corey Taylor can’t remember his own shows

It seems Corey and I have something in common: Neither of us thinks Slipknot shows are worth remembering…

After fainting on stage last month, Corey is now saying he doesn’t remember finishing the show and just remembers waking up afterwards with his wife and band colleague trying to take care of him. Sounds like the premise for a bad porn film, if you ask me…

I basically blacked out for the last two songs, but I finished the show. I have no memory of the last two songs. I woke up backstage with an oxygen mask on and Chris Fehn taking my shoes off — which is very weird — and my wife making sure I was okay. And I immediately started freaking out, thinking, ‘Oh my God, we had to cut the show short.’ And she was like, ‘No, you finished it.’ And I was like, ‘Excuse me, I did what?’ That’s terrifying in a weird way. It makes me go back and think, ‘How many other shows have I finished where I have no idea what happened?‘”

Read full article here. Video after the jump.

He must have been terrified waking up and hearing he inflected ear pain on the audience two more times before passing out.

Joking aside, hopefully the guy is okay, cause the only time people associate ‘fainting’ and nu-metal is when they’re talking about Linkin Park. Get well soon brother.


It’s bad news when Bullet For My Valentine sound better than you

Yes, I’m a day late with this, but so what? I was busy getting laid while you were on Blabbermouth hitting F5.

Last night (or the night before) was the official Revolver Golden God awards ceremony (or something… The fact Korn won best album tells me it’s redundant and I shouldn’t care) and Trivium, Corey Taylor (of Stone Sour and Slipknot) and Robb Flynn (of Machine Head) got together to play through this fairly mediocre rendition of Metallica‘s ‘Creeping Death’. You can watch the live video above.

The main problem is Corey sounds like ass. But then, maybe you like ass.

P.S. If you’re wondering what the title is about, here.


Corey Taylor can use Twitter, let’s us know he’s working with Dave Grohl

Shocking, right? I didn’t think that Corey Taylor would use Twitter, he seems kinda above it. Like, it’s for people who usually have loads of free time and shitty bloggers, not people as important as Corey, who are always on tour, promoting their books, giving rad speeches, rocking the acoustic guitar or whatevs.

Oh, the other thing… Seems he made a collaboration with none other than Dave Grohl and Butch Vig, and people are speculating it’s got something to do with Grohl’s other recent team project, a song with Ratt, and that in fact it might be revival of Grohl’s Probot project.

Anywho, the tweet:

HUGE checks off the Bucket List today- did a song with Dave Grohl and Butch Vig. Do the words ‘holy shit’ say enough about it?!?


Corey Taylor speaks the truth about Stone Sour

Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor is a well spoken man. I mean, how else would he be able to sell all those books and make a tour consisting of him spewing his opinions and doing acoustic sets of SpongeBob songs? What, people are extremely gullible? Could be that, but come on, how can you not agree with him when he says that he’s looking forward to:

“…basically becoming a mad scientist in the studio and creating an album that no one wants us to make.”

Quoted for truth. A new Stone Sour album is definitely something no one wants him to make. He then kind of ruins it by saying:

“Picture [Pink Floyd’s] ‘The Wall’ meets [Alice in Chains’] ‘Dirt’ on steroids, and that will give you a taste of what I’m shooting for right now.”

Quoted as evidence of immediate necessary psychiatric help. Yeah, last time I checked Pink Floyd and Alice in Chains were all about sugary radio hits, right? To be fair, the man has done his fair share of experimenting, proof of which can be found after the jump.


Corey Taylor brings teh lulz again

I love Corey Taylor, the guy is just a goldmine of funny articles, Dose of Metal owes most of its existence to him, because he’s just so easy to mock write about.

So like, I was wondering when 2012 would bring us more funny Corey Taylor interviews, but Corey doesn’t disappoint, he delivered RIGHT AWAY. This time he’s talking about the upcoming Stone Sour album:

Our ultimate goal is a double concept album, which the only way I can describe it is The Wall meets  Dirt on steroids. And I think it’s gonna be fantastic. And if I can pull it off, it’s gonna be the biggest thing we’ve ever done in our career.

See interview after the jump.

Wow, Pink Floyd meets Alice in Chains… ON STEROIDS! This just sounds amazing, probably a masterpiece in the making…

For once I’d like some honesty from musicians, something like “Yeah, this album will be Limp Bizkit‘s Chocolate Starfish meets Linkin Park‘s Meteora” or something. But no, everyone always shoots for bands like Pink Floyd.

Which reminds me, didn’t Fred Durst once describe LB’s upcoming album as Pink Floyd meets Pantera? Maybe it’s just a nu-metal thing, name-drop Pink Floyd and another credible band in your interviews.
