Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor and Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose had been very good friends for a long time until Rose asked him to produce the band’s sixth studio album, ‘Chinese Democracy.’ It took years to release the record and led many problems between the band members.
However, Taylor refused Rose’s offer as he didn’t want to produce the album, and this ended their friendship. According to Taylor, Axl decided not to speak with him again, and this move can be considered the beginning of longtime feud between two legendary musicians.
Corey Taylor Put His Testicles On Axl Rose’s Piano
During one of the festivals in which Slipknot and Guns N’ Roses played, Taylor found out that Rose makes their fans wait for hours until he decides to start his performance. He considered this very disrespectful because those fans pay thousands of dollars just to watch their favorite bands.
Therefore, Taylor wanted to take revenge on Axl Rose by putting his testicles on his piano. Then, during one of his radio appearances, a fan called the station and yelled at Taylor because of what he did to Axl Rose at that festival. Taylor criticized the fan, saying that waiting for hours shouldn’t be okay for anyone.
Corey said in his interview that:
“I mean, anybody who makes his fans wait for two to three hours for him to go on stage, I have no respect for. When you make your fans wait that long — and I don’t give a f’ck what hard-on the caller just said, ‘Oh, we expect it’ — well, you’re a f’cking idiot then. All right? Figure it out.
Do you know why there are really no original members of Guns N’ Roses left? Because he made them wait for three hours! Do you want an ‘Appetite’ reunion? Tell him to f’cking stop being a douchebag.“
Taylor targeted Axl Rose once more and claimed that Guns N’ Roses had to undergo line-up changes because of Rose’s reckless and disrespectful behavior toward the original members. He stated that the band can’t reunite until Rose stops being a douchebag.
