Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor spoke in the recent podcast of famous radio personality, Eddie Trunk, and revealed the real meaning of rock n’ roll and heavy metal.
In the conversation, Corey stated that he had never had problems like burnout even though he has been into the scene for around twenty years. Corey explained how he could be staying fresh by saying that he has been shifting the projects whenever he feels everything is done.
Also, Corey touched upon what the community needs exactly and said that the audience has a hunger for different and new projects. Corey mentioned that this is keeping the energy and excitement of the scene forever and that’s what heavy metal is all about.
Eddie Trunk said:
“That’s a good thing of having more than one band, one of the mistakes a lot of artists have done in recent years, they’ve played too much with their band, so for you to be able to be in Slipknot mode for a year and then that’s on hiatus for a year or two, and then you’re in Stone Sour mode or solo mode, that breathing room I think really benefits the other bands.”
Corey Taylor replied:
“I think that’s the key too, maybe that’s the key to the fact why I’ve been able to do this for over 20 years now – the fact that I’ve never burned people out, and I’ve never burned out myself, musically.
Like, just when I feel like I’ve done everything I possibly can with one thing, I shift gears and go to another one, and then the audience kind of feels that as well, the audience is always ready for something different, something new or something fresh.
That keeps the energy different, it keeps it vital, it keeps… Like, people are always waiting for it, always stoked for it, always excited to see what’s gonna happen next, and that’s what rock ‘n’ roll’s all about – that’s what heavy metal is all about.”
