Tweet: "I really hope the GnR reunion happens! And to be clear, I said I would retire from touring so I could follow them like the Grateful Dead!" Slipknot star Corey Taylor is excited about rumours suggesting the original GUNS N' ROSES line-up, including Slash and Axl Rose, is set to reunite for the first time in over 20 years to headline the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California in April (16).
Quote: "Nobody gets more excited about the thought of the Appetite For Destruction line-up coming back together... I would retire from touring, because I wouldn't want to go up against that... And then I would follow them like I was a Deadhead. Like, I would just go to every show. But that's only if it's the Appetite line-up - or even if it's those guys with (Matt) Sorum... because I know that Steven (Adler) has some physical issues." Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor insists he'll retire if the classic Guns N' Roses line-up reforms for a tour.
Quote: "Anybody who makes his fans wait for two to three hours for him to go onstage, I have no respect for... You know why there are really no original f**king members of Guns N' Roses left? Because he made them wait three f**king hours! You want an (album) Appetite (For Destruction) reunion? Tell him to f**kng stop being a d**chebag." Slipknot star Corey Taylor is not a fan of Axl Rose's tardiness at shows.
Quote: "Kanye, you are not - not - the greatest living rock star of all time. The fact that you had to tell people that kind of says it all. You remind of the guy who brags about p**sy. They never get as much as they brag about. Stop it." Slipknot star Corey Taylor challenges Kanye West after the rapper foolishly boasted he was the greatest rock star.
Fact: Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Slipknot's Corey Taylor are among the stars who have contributed to a new record by supergroup Teenage Time Killer. The band is the brainchild of Corrosion of Conformity rockers Mike Dean and Reed Mullin. Other contributors include former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri and Randy Blythe of Lamb of God.
Quote: "I've been hit by a lot of s**t. In France, I got hit by a dead rabbit... I've caught a nine-volt battery in the face. I've been hit by a giant f**king Jager bottle... I can't tell you how many f**king shoes I've been hit with. It's gotten to the point where I can almost feel them coming." Slipknot star Corey Taylor on what fans throw at him during gigs.
Quote: "No one should ever put a microphone in front of Dave Mustaine's face unless he's on stage. Every time he says something, I cringe." Slipknot star Corey Taylor isn't a fan of the MEGADETH frontman's political rants.
Quote: "I'm really glad everyone has responded to it and are ready to join us for it. It's going to be heavy and I'm looking forward to feeling that. It's going to be so much louder than this band." Slipknot star Corey Taylor is pleased by the response to plans to hold a two-minute silence in honour of late bassist Paul Gray at the U.K.'s upcoming Sonisphere Festival at the weekend (09-10Jul11).
Fact: Slipknot star Corey Taylor and former Sex Pistols star Steve Jones will join Duff Mckagan's band Loaded onstage at the upcoming Revolver Golden God Awards in Los Angeles. The supergroup will perform a rendition of Judas Priest's Electric Eye at the Club Nokia event on 20 April (11).
Quote: "I cried the first time I met him. Although that was because I didn't meet him until I was 30, so when I got the chance, it was pretty emotional." Slipknot's Corey Taylor had a tearful meeting with his father, who left his mum before he was born.
Quote: "There was one kid in Australia who made us all sign his face which we went along with, but he showed up a couple of days later and he got them tattooed on. I tried to tell him that he'd cut his job opportunities in half but he didn't care... One guy in Grand Rapids, Michigan wanted us to sign his a**hole! Not the cheeks, but the inside of his a**." Slipknot's Corey Taylor gets some disturbing autograph requests from fans.
