Corey Taylor Explains Why He Was Feeling Left Out In Slipknot

Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor explained why he felt left out in Slipknot during a recent appearance on Steve-O’s Wild Ride.

As you might already know, Corey was playing with Stone Sour before joining Slipknot, and after releasing three albums with Slipknot, he took a small break and continue to work with Stone Sour.

In the conversation, Corey stated that he felt left out with Slipknot because he thought that he wrote all the lyrics he had and this is why he decided to work with Stone Sour again.

While Corey was saying that the sound is so different between these two bands, he also mentioned that he was really good at writing those types of music too, which is why he juggled both for the last 15 years.

Interviewer said:

“You were in Stone Sour before Slipknot, you did the first three albums with Slipknot, and then it was like, ‘OK guys, we need to take a break from each other.’ So you went back to Stone Sour at that point, everybody kind of did side projects…”

Corey Taylor replied:

“Yeah, that was kind of it. The reason I put Stone Sour back together was – I was feeling left out of the music writing process. I wrote all the lyrics, but when I was doing Stone Sour, I wrote a lot more of the music.

And it was because that music doesn’t sound anything like Slipknot. So that was one of the things that I was really good at – writing that sort of music. With Slipknot, it’s so intricate and so different.”

He continued:

“Of course, it makes more sense that they would write more of the music, but for me, there was a part of me that wasn’t feeling fulfilled in that side of it, which is one of the reasons why I put Stone Sour back together.

It was to kind of feel like I was contributing a little more on both fronts. So I kind of juggled both for the last 15 years.”
