However, the risk continues for he could no longer continue fronting the band. Now Corey interviewed with Metal Hammer and says his latest news and decision about the Slipknot future.
Corey interview: “I mean, it’s crossed my mind as the years have gone on. It’s gotten harder to do this. You think about when the end is. No one thought we’d be doing it 20 years later. If I just couldn’t do it anymore, I’d just stop, but that doesn’t mean that the band would stop. If I can’t do it then someone might be able to take my place.

“I’ve thought about it before: If the right person came around and the guys were into it then I’ll just head off. We can’t shortchange anyone.”
After that Corey added, “Everything we went through, the tragedy and the drama, and we kept the band’s spirit alive. We never watered anything down, we never tried to do anything that didn’t feel right. That’s the whole point of Slipknot: to do whatever you want but to do it at 100mph.” Also, you can find a full interview with Taylor and his Slipknot bandmates in the new issue of Metal Hammer.
