  • Corey Taylor Tells It Like It Is In New Interview
    POSTED 1 Jan 1970


    Stone Sour frontman, Corey Taylor caught up with our friends at Junkee to talk new band dynamics, performing with son, Griffin, and being the man behind the name...

    You’ve earned this reputation as a sort of edge-lord and provocateur — has that grown tiresome?

    Taylor:

    "Y’know, the funny thing is that I’ve experienced a little bit of blowback on it. It’s par for the course, I guess. It is what it is. It’s the price of having an opinion. It’s the price of being yourself, really.

    People forget that the only reason I give my opinion half the time is because people fucking ask me — and they’re pulling those from interviews, which is just a series of fucking questions! People think I’m holding fucking press conferences or something — [shakes fist] “GODDAMMIT, YOU PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW WHAT I THINK!!” It’s obviously so not true."

    "I think that’s a reflection of the times we find ourselves in. Social media has given everyone a voice, but mine’s still a little louder than everyone else. People pick my shit apart. They take the juiciest soundbites and throw them up there. People are invariably deciding that I’m being more selfish than they are. It’s stupid and it’s silly, and I hope it doesn’t affect my career. If it does, I guess I’ll go back to fucking washing RVs. [laughs]

    I’m not just saying things to provoke. I speak from the heart. I’m not like certain artists who just say things to shock. The opinions I have are very much who the fuck I am. If people can’t live with that, they weren’t paying attention in the first place."
