Corey Taylor: "Once again, I'm not leaving Slipknot"


Slipknot's Corey Taylor was recently interviewed by Full Metal Jackie, you can read some excerpts below.


He said once again that he's not leaving Slipknot: "Well, I do it every two years. I mean, that's what people forget, I step away from Slipknot to do Stone Sour all the time. That's what I was kind of talking about. You know, I was talking about time off and I was talking about giving myself a chance to kind of catch my breath and kind of letting Slipknot take a rest as well."

He continued: "The ironic thing is that in that same interview that I was doing with Daniel P. Carter, I talk about what I call cut-and-paste journalism, and it happened to me in that interview; they took something so far out of context to the point where Metal Hammer said I was quitting. I was, like, 'Really? What are you doing?' It was so stupid, I can't even describe the reaction. And finally I had to get on Twitter and go, 'I'm not quitting Slipknot. I was talking about time off. Please read things in context. Listen to interviews in context.' It was so ridiculous."
