Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor shared his thoughts about whether Guns N’ Roses is today’s Rolling Stones or not in his recent interview with Knotfest after the host’s comments on the subject.
As you probably know, The Rolling Stones was founded in 1962 and since then they have become one of the most influential and commercially successful bands in the world. Throughout their prolific career, their albums hit the charts and sold millions worldwide. Along with that, the band members’ crazy lifestyle full of sex, drugs, and rock and roll gave their fans some unforgettable moments.
Then, Guns N’ Roses followed their footsteps with their hedonistic and rebellious lifestyle. The band made the headlines not only with their unique songs but also with their arrest warrants, relationships with the groupies, and their heavy use of drugs and alcohol.
Therefore, Corey Taylor agreed with the host when he said that ‘Guns N’ Roses is our Rolling Stones’ during his recent interview. It seems that both bands’ dangerous and toxic lifestyles and their impact on the rock music scene deeply influenced Slipknot and Stone Sour’s career.
Here’s what the host said about the bands in the interview:
“I always say Guns N’ Roses is our Rolling Stones.“
Corey Taylor then responded:
“Yeah, and you’re not wrong, you’re absolutely not wrong.”
