Slipknot’s rhythm guitarist Jim Root spoke in a recent interview with Heavy1, and he revealed some new details about the upcoming plans of Slipknot.
Jim cleared the air about what we can expect from Slipknot in 2020 and mentioned the members who parted ways from Slipknot such as Chris Fehn.
Here is what Jim Root said about the future of the band:
“I’m afraid to be about it, because in the past, we never knew what was gonna happen and we always worked it out and and we always came together and we always did it. Now I’m afraid that the reverse-psychology Murphy’s Law thing would… If we say, ‘Oh, we’re happy. We’re great. Everything’s good. We’re gonna keep making records forever,’ then that would mean that we’re not. You know what I mean? Kind of a reverse-psychology thing.
I don’t have a crystal ball, I can’t see the future. I know I really enjoy writing music for this band. I enjoy the level this band’s at. All the dues that we’ve paid over the past 20 years, I’d hate to see all that go to waste.”
Jim Root about the former bandmates:
“We lost a couple of guys along the way, and those guys are still dear to my heart and soul, and we wouldn’t be the band we are without them. And for us to just dissolve, it would be a fucking shame.”
