In an interview with Metal Hammer, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor talked about his new way of living by getting rid of negativities and focusing on the good and happiness in life.
As you may recall, the talented vocalist Corey Taylor has been known for his anger management issues, particularly during his previous relationships. After two failed marriages, Taylor found love again with the founder of ‘Cherry Bombs,’ Alicia Dove.
Back in 2006, Corey Taylor also revealed he actually attempted to jump off a balcony of the eighth floor of a hotel in 2003, yet, fortunately, his then-wife Scarlett Stone was there to stop him.
In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Corey Taylor talked about his previous personal problems which made him considered as one of the angriest men in the metal music community. During the interview, Taylor mentioned how he changed his point of view in life and started to get rid of all the negativities around him. He also stated that focusing on his priorities helped him to start a new phase in his life.
Here’s what Corey Taylor stated about his new way of living:
“My whole mindset has changed. Before I was so full of piss and vinegar and angry about shit, I would crack off about everything. I really started to go, ‘Who gives a shit? Does it really matter?’ I’ve let go of the energy it takes me to be angry about it. To me, at the end of the day, if someone’s happy, then good.
There are way too many things that we should be fighting and trying to make better, and way too many things that are trying to tear us apart. If there’s a handful of things that make you happy, then who am I to fucking question it.
Because I’ve let go of a lot of that negative bullshit, it’s made me happy too. I‘ve re-evaluated my focus on my priorities. Going through what I did, makes me appreciate what I have. It’s almost like a new lease of life.”
