During an interview with Ed Gamble and James Acaster’s “Off Menu” podcast program. He reveals how is the band’s concert performances and the latest status of the SLIPKNOT:
“We came out of the gate so nuts that only age has been able to really kind of take the edge off of it, and yet, on stage, we’re still just a fucking ball of, like, what the fuck? We still tour like we’re 25, ’cause we’re stupid. And we’re just fucking running all over the place. We’ve all had at least one surgery. It’s, like, what the fuck are we trying to prove at this point? ‘I can kick my own ass. You fucking watch.’ I don’t get it, man.”
Corey Taylor also add:
“I’m still as into extreme music as I’ve always been. That’s just a side of me that I’ve always been into. It’ never hard enough; it’s never crazy enough. And sometimes the band has to calm me down when it comes to the stuff that I write. I don’t know, man. I’ve always said that the second that I’m doing this for reasons other than my absolute passion for doing it, as soon as that changes, that’s when I’ll know.
And that’s honestly why I’ve always followed my passions and followed my interests, and I’ve never allowed myself to do anything for money, for a cheap pop, cheap fame – I’ve never done any of that. I’m not gonna say I’m proud of it, because that’s just who I am.
However, needless to say, if I get to the age where that choice makes more and more sense, I think there’s a part of me that will absolutely rein myself in and be, like, ‘No. No. This isn’t who you are. This isn’t what you wanna do. You need to walk. And I think at that point, I’ll have accomplished enough that I’ll be okay with it. It won’t mean that I’ll stop making music. It just means I’ll stop making a certain type of music. For me, I think I’ll have the honesty to know and hopefully the courage to do it because sometimes it’s scary.”
