In a new interview with Slipknot percussionist Clown‘s The Electric Theater, Corey Taylor, known for the singer of the Slipknot, discussed his relationship with his bandmate and ended up the rumors that they had problems.
While they were talking about the issue, Clown said:
“It’s disheartening, it bugs me a little bit that there may be people out there that may think, ‘Well, Clown won’t talk to Corey,’ and blah blah… What I want to talk about is this idea of Corey Taylor who we all know.
“People probably don’t know that you’re my favorite singer in my favorite band. This thing that I want to talk about today, which is called ‘solo,’ how important that word is to you? Everyone else wants you potentially to stick on the thing that they deem most important for them…”
Corey Taylor answered it and remembered the great conversations he made with his bandmate. He said:
“Let me back up and chime in on something that you said, that people wouldn’t believe that you and I would have this conversation or we would even be a part of this.
“What people don’t realize is that you and I probably have some of the best conversations that I’ve ever been a part of.
“Like, talking with you is one of my favorite things to do, whether it’s on the road, in the studio, between albums, regardless of what it is and where we’re at, our conversations always stick with me.
“We talk about things that we don’t necessarily get to talk with other people about; we have conversations that no one else would have, and that’s why I love when you and I sit and we talk about art – when we talk about movies or we’re just bullshitting.
“We’re just bouncing fun things off of each other… Some of my favorite memories and it’s some of my favorite things that we’ve ever done, I don’t know if I ever told you that before, but I cherish those…
“It’s so hard for people to understand that, and I’ve never understood why. Like, I don’t know whether or not it’s because people just can’t wrap about the fact that people can be multi-faceted. It’s like people who expect an actor just to play the same role over and over and over again.
“The whole point of being an actor is to expand and play different parts, be in different worlds and whatnot, and to me, it’s the same with music. Music should be something that – if you can paint with those different brushes, why not?
“Sometimes one brush works for one person, but for some people, you know, we just love to write. I know it’s the same with you, the stuff that you write is some of it is so different from Slipknot, but it all makes up the mind that is behind this.”
