Jim Root about Stone Sour split: " When something like that happens, it's like getting dumped"


Guitarist Jim Root talked about about his dismissal from Stone Sour and this has made things difficult for him and vocalist Corey Taylor. Below you can read some excerpts.


Root said: "When you're sort of blindsided by something like that, it kind of makes you wonder what the motivations or intentions are, or why it has to be like that, when really all that needs to happen is a Slipknot record, then we could go back to business as usual later."

"For whatever reason, it happened and it sort of lit a fire under my ass to realize that it doesn't really matter who you are or what your role is in any particular thing that you do. You always have to be on top of your game, because you never know what is going to happen. It definitely made me want to put my nose to the grindstone and hone my skills a little more. When something like that happens, it's like getting dumped."
