That sounds pretty definitive, no? Slipknot will carry on “with or without” Corey Taylor, says Joey Jordison in an interview with Artisan News Service. Joey made his comments last week, at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
His comments come after Taylor’s recent remarks that he doesn’t see much of a future for the band without dead bassist Paul Gray.
“As far as I’m concerned, Slipknot’s my baby and I have a bunch of [new] songs written,” says Jordison. “And I’m in rehearsal right now with all the guys and it’s completely on fire. Donnie [Steele, a guitarist from an early lineup of Slipknot who will act as the band’s touring bassist for the upcoming shows, is] doing a great job. And as far as Slipknot’s concerned, it’ll always exist — with [Corey] or without him. So that’s it.”
Damn. Something tells me Joey and Corey aren’t so tight anymore. Something also tells me that Joey knows that once Slipknot goes, that lifestyle of his will be somewhat restricted. I bet you Corey doesn’t return, and that the band carries on. But that’s just a guess by me. or maybe wishful thinking. Actually, wishful thinking would be Slipknot dissolving completely.
