Slipknot's Corey Taylor talks about "Summer's Last Stand" tour


Slipknot's Corey Taylor recently talked with Zippo Encore, you can read some excerpts below.


Corey Taylor said: "The process for bringing our special Slipknot Zippos to life is essentially us just basically putting our creative caps on and trying to think of something visually that we would wanna see and maybe has never been seen before. I know Clown's worked on some designs, and he's so artistically visual that it has resulted in some very, very cool things that the fans will appreciate."

He continued: "Zippo is a brand that I've appreciated since I was young. And who can think of a concert, especially a heavy metal or hard rock concert, without picturing lighters up in the air showing the appreciation for the music that's been going on."

Taylor added: "I think Slipknot fans will be into this, as far as us working with Zippo, because they know that when we put our name behind something that it's gonna mean quality and it's gonna mean something very cool for them. We do it for the art, and we do it for the fans, to try and make something cool for them, because they are the whole reason that we're here. So it'll be exciting to see the reaction to the Slipknot Zippos that come out, especially knowing that it came from our brain and that it's something that we back fully."
