Corey Taylor, the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, has recently talked about his debut solo album, ‘CMFT,’ and revealed the fact that one of his bands, Stone Sour, didn’t accept his offer of a couple of his solo songs.
The iconic vocalist, Corey Taylor, has finally released his debut solo studio album, ‘CMFT,’ on October 2, 2020, by Roadrunner Records. The album has already taken good reviews from the critics who agreed that Taylor is doing something that he’s always wanted to do through the hard rock, blues, and country-infused tracks.
During his latest conversation with NME, after the album’s release, Corey Taylor answered the questions about the creation and recording process of his great songs. He also unveiled that he tried to offer to Stone Sour some of his songs, but, for whatever reason, they just weren’t feeling it.
Taylor said there’s really not a lot of Slipknot on the album, so he didn’t even ask them. However, he added that the only song, which reflects the style of Slipknot, might have been ‘European Tour Bus Bathroom Song,’ but it’s still a little too jolly for them.
Here’s what Corey Taylor said when asked if there’s a song in his album fits for his bands:
“Probably not. There’s a couple of songs on there that I actually tried to offer to Stone Sour and for whatever reason, they just weren’t feeling it.
There’s really not a lot of Slipknot on there. The only one might have been ‘European Tour Bus Bathroom Song,’ just because it sort of has an ‘Eeyore’ or ‘Get This‘ kind of vibe, but it’s still probably a little too jolly for Slipknot.
I wrote that 10 years ago. I thought it was such a funny idea to write a song that was a rhythmic cadence of words on a sign in a European tour bus bathroom. It was kind of a challenge to myself.”
