Slipknot's Corey Taylor about Guns N' Roses reunion: "I would retire from touring"


Slipknot singer Corey Taylor was recently interviewed by Las Vegas Review-Journal, you can read some excerpts below.


About the prospect of a Guns N' Roses return: "I will believe it when I buy the ticket, let's put it that way. I mean, because nobody gets more excited about the thought of the 'Appetite For Destruction' lineup coming back together… That would be … I mean, there you go. I mean, dude, I would retire from touring, because I wouldn't want to go up against that. You know what I'm saying? And then I would follow them like I was a Deadhead. Like I would just go to every show. But that's only if it's the 'Appetite' lineup, or even if it's those guys with drummer Matt Sorum instead of Steven Adler… Because I know that Steven has some physical issues, but he can still play, man. I've seen him play. He can jam, dude. That dude knows how to pound."

He continued: "'Appetite For Destruction' is top to bottom … yeah, it's one of those albums that you cannot listen to and not go, 'Holy shit!' Like you put it on, and you feel it, even if you're not into the music, you feel it. There's something so dirty and so raw and so amazing about that album. And the songs are amazing. You know, people like to talk about the production or the attitude … those fucking songs are ridiculous! It was the one album that all my metal friends, all my skater friends, all my punk friends, all my hard rock friends could agree on."
