The 46-year-old musician Corey Taylor, known for his Slipknot career since 1997, spoke on The Eddie Trunk Podcast and remembered his nearly joining to the thrash metal band Anthrax.

During an interview, when Slipknot singer was asked if he regrets not joining the band, Corey Taylor explained why it didn’t happen.

“No, not at all. I mean, obviously, I would’ve totally done the Anthrax thing if the record label hadn’t gotten involved, you know? They basically shut that down.

“I was actually leaving that day to go to Chicago to go to rehearse with Scott [Ian, guitar] and Charlie, to work on music, and they shut that down because they wanted another Slipknot album.”

Corey has also touched Joey Belladonna‘s joining to the band and said he supported it.

“I mean, we’ve worked on a lot of stuff that ended up appearing on ‘Worship Music.’ Like, to this day, I listen to it, and there are moments that I’m listening to music, the things I wrote vocally that would’ve been cool.

“But at the same time, I’m very supportive of the fact that they got Joey [Belladonna, vocals] back. I mean, to me, that’s Anthrax, man, even the stuff they do with John [Bush, the Anthrax singer from 1992 to 2005] was really good. It just felt like, if it was gonna happen, it would’ve happened.”
