Slipknot's Corey Taylor: "I'm a real guru when it comes to health"


Slipknot's Corey Taylor was interviewed by Studio Brussel at the Graspop Metal Meeting in Dessel, Belgium on June 20. You can read some excerpts below.


About how he keeps up with Slipknot's busy touring schedule, Taylor responded: "I work out at home and I work out on the road when I can. But, I mean, all you can do is just kind of take care of yourself. This is coming from the guy who smokes cigarettes and drinks coffee. Yeah, I'm a real guru when it comes to health."

About why it is that so many rockers have quit drinking and doing drugs and are leading such healthy lifestyles nowadays, Taylor said: "Ah, I don't know. They probably got bored. I mean, I quit drinking. I quit everything; I'm sober. I still eat giant steaks and French Fries and all kinds of garbage. But, you know, it's about staying healthy. It's about going where your mind is, not just the way your body is. When I hit 40, I was, like, 'Oh, time to get back into shape.' And I never looked back."
