Slipknot's Corey Taylor: "I want to give Metal, Hard Rock and Punk a little spotlight on my radio show"


Slipknot's Corey Taylor recently talked with Rolling Stone about his new radio show "A Series Of Bleeps With Corey Taylor", you can read some excerpts below.


He said: "They asked me to do exactly what I wanted to do, which was to split it up with half talking and half music, but not sticking to a strict regimen. I wanted to talk a bunch of stream-of-[consciousness] smack and play the music I would want to hear."

He added: "As much as the metal genre is celebrated around the world, we don't get a showcase for it. When we do, it gets shut down completely. So for me, if this is the only shot I get at being able to hold up the music that I love and show people that hard rock, heavy metal or punk is just as good as any of the bullshit that's out there right now, I'm going to do it. This is me, representing what I love and what I believe in, giving our genre a little spotlight."
