Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Thinks He Can’t Be Friends With Machine Gun Kelly

In a new chat on The Alison Hagendorf Show, Corey Taylor discussed the bitter fallout with Machine Gun Kelly while clearing the air about his feelings toward the current situation and his intention to bury the hatchet.

The two musicians’ feud that started in 2021 seemed to be settled when Kelly made an explanation and admitted to his regret in an interview. With new statements from Corey, we found out for sure that their fight ended, but the Slipknot vocalist’s stance against MGK did not completely disappear.

While his words expressing his regret went as follows:

“Sometimes people are just gonna butt heads. He and I are very similar in certain ways, which — shock and awe — big-mouth singers; we are big-mouth singers. I appreciate that. And I guess sometimes… I know from my past mistakes that sometimes the words get out, and I wish I could grab ’em.

Taylor confirmed they couldn’t be friends anymore despite their newly-found peace by saying:

“It is what it is. It’s one of those things where he and I will probably never be friends, but I’m sure we can both respect each other for what we do and what we’ve done and just move on. It’s stuff like that that it never needs to keep going. Once you’ve said your piece, that’s it. And a lot of times, it’s the fans that carry it on, especially in this day and age with social media and everything. It happened, it was a moment, and I made my peace with it. I’m assuming he did as well. And there’s that.”
