During the interview with “Bertcast” program host Bert Kreischer on his YouTube Channel. Corey Taylor talks about SLIPKNOT’s early days, without mask event and TMZ:
“The first couple of years was rad. But then the more success we got, obviously, it’s human nature, man — the ego starts to come out.
As much as people think it was the reason I put STONE SOUR back together, it’s not. For me, that was about writing music again, ’cause I just wasn’t being able to write music in SLIPKNOT, ’cause I’m just not that good; I’m not as good as those guys are at intricate riffs and shit. I’ve gotten better, but at the time, I wasn’t getting to write music. I just felt unfulfilled. So I put that back together. But the by-product of was now all of a sudden people know I look like.”
Then he continued with TMZ:
“I get the benefits of fame without the TMZ shit. I don’t get any of that shit. I get to play in front of thousands, millions of people. I get to do cool shit like this, and I can still chill at home. Nobody’s camping outside my fucking house.
All my kids are taken care of. My bills are paid. I have no fucking worries. I love it. It’s the best.”
He also recently said in his latest interview SLIPKNOT’s new album coming next year. Watch the interview below!
