In a new video interview with Rock Feed while isolating at their home, the couple reveal how their lives have been impacted by coronavirus with respective tours being cancelled and postponed – including a trip to Atlanta “to do a taste test for a food truck that we’re starting”, according to the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman.


Though he seemingly accidentally spills the beans here, Corey Taylor and Alicia Taylor nevertheless continue to discuss their ideas for this truck, revealing that it was the plan to actually have it at their shows.

 

 
It was basically a taco food truck. We can’t say vegan” Corey says. “There will be some dairy and some stuff in there, but the main focus was flavour – not just content. People talk about vegan and they can become very pretentious. For us, it’s just about, ‘Look, we’re fat-asses, man, we just wanna eat! We want some fucking food!’ This was a way for us to combine that with a healthier lifestyle.”


“Because a lot of people don’t know this: we went plant-based in August/September,” adds Alicia. “And we saw the benefits immediately.”


Check out the full interview below – with the food truck reveal coming in at around 21 minutes.

Living Out Loud - LA recently conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On SLIPKNOT's split with drummer Joey Jordison in December 2013:

"I mean, it was hard at first. Nothing worth doing is ever easy right out of the gate. When we parted ways with Joe, it was honestly because of necessity; he was going one way and we were going another, and we just couldn't go that way anymore. And honestly, that's all I can really say about it. But I can tell you that starting to move on without him was one of the most difficult things we've ever done. I mean, just as hard, in a lot of ways, as trying to move on without Paul [Gray, late SLIPKNOT bassist]. But, like anything, it takes those first couple of steps, and then it gets a little easier. It doesn't get better by any means, by any stretch of the imagination, but it gets easier. With the new guys , it's really kind of a 2.0 kind of situation, where it's the second phase of SLIPKNOT's career, basically. And it's different. In a lot of ways, it's more fun, but in a lot of ways, it's bittersweet; it really is. Because you've got two dudes who you kind of went to the trenches with, and you stood on shoulders to kind of get to where you were, and then you lose one and then you have to split with another. And it's hard, man. It's difficult at times. Because you've got two great dudes who you're jamming with right now, but they don't understand a lot of the sacrifice and the toil that went into a lot of it. But at the same time, they have such respect not only for the band, but the music and what we're doing, because they're fans — they started out as fans and they grew up listening to us. So they have absolute respect for what this band is and what it stands for. And they have never asked for too much, stepped on the wrong toes… They are very respectful, and that's huge for us. Coming from Iowa, respect is a big thing, and they have shown it at every stage of the way. So that, in a way, has also made it a little easier for us."

On whether SLIPKNOT felt any pressure while making last year's ".5: The Gray Chapter" album:

"This band is… It's just very unique, and it always has been. There's still a lot of people out in the world who just don't understand what this band is about, and that's kind of fine, because as long as we know, it doesn't matter what anybody else thinks. And I think in a lot of ways, that's why we've been as resilient as we have been. Because we're very aware of what the identity of the band is. Just because a lot of people have a misconception of what this band is about, it doesn't change how we feel about it. And when you have that kind of strong foundation, everything else just kind of balances. We were nervous going into the studio, sure, but we knew we were going to do something special right out of the gate. It might not have been what people expected, but at the same time, we're a band that, if we're not happy with something, we don't release it — straight up. If we don't back it, we're not putting it out there. That's not say that, in retrospect, some of our stuff has been… To us, hindsight is always 20/20, so you look back at some of the stuff you've done and you're, like, 'Hmmm… I don't know about that.' But, for us, in the moment, it's what we're all about. So there wasn't a lot of pressure. It was more pressures for us that we put on ourselves, just to make a great album that we would wanna listen to. We really never paid attention to the outside stuff. It's never gotten in. I mean, that's one of the reasons why we recorded 'Iowa' the way we did, and it's also one of the reasons why we turned around and did 'Vol. 3' the way we wanted fo — just because we wanted to do it that way. So, for us, we've always been very resilient, and maybe, again, this is the reason that we work the way we do. Coming from the Midwest, we've never shied away from hard work — ever. It's one of the reasons why we dug our heels in right out of the gate and were able to establish ourselves on the first album. It's because we never shied away from the work, 'cause that's what it's all about. But the other side of that is that this band is so different. I can't describe what this band is. It's never been easy for me to describe, because, on paper, we should never have made it in the first place. I mean, it's true: we never should have. People should have looked at us and just been, 'What in the fuck is going on here?' On paper, we don't sell four million copies of the first album. It just doesn't make any sense. But this band is different, and we beat all the odds. And I think that's why we continue to beat the odds — because we're just different, man…. Whether you look at this band as theatrical or creative, there's just something that resonates with this band. And whether people hate us or love us, they respect the fact that, after sixteen years, we're still doing it, and we're still doing it bigger than we ever did. I mean, it's insane."

On how he manages to stay involved with so many different projects:

"It's exhausting sometimes, but I'm also the guy that, if I'm not into it, I don't do it — straight up. If I can't find my satisfaction in something, then I pass on it. I've turned down so many different things — different opportunities, different projects and whatnot — just because not only could I not find my place in it, but also because I just don't have the time. And I know that if I don't have the time, I'm not gonna be able to do something to the best of my ability. So, as crazy as it is, I'm able to do a lot of different stuff because I actually have the time to kind of focus on it — whether it's writing books or making albums or touring, or whatever. And honestly, I've gotten to a point in my life where I can afford to bring my family with me, which is a whole different thing. So it's very, very rarely that I don't have my family with me, so I'm very lucky in that respect. And that helps. Just having them to come home to, whether it's walking from the stage to the bus, or pulling up and getting them to bed, it's all good."

".5: The Gray Chapter" sold 132,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release to land at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart.

SLIPKNOT's music video for "XIX", the opening track from the band's 2014 album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", can be seen below.

SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn Crahan constructed the song as a three-minute eulogy for the band's founding bassist Paul Gray, who died in May 2010 of an accidental overdose of morphine and the painkiller fentanyl. Crahan spoke the song's opening words, "This song is not for the living; this song is for the dead." But it's the lyrics that frontman Corey Taylor wrote that drove him to tears: "Walk with me, just like we should have done right from the start.... Walk with me, don't let this fucking world tear you apart."

"I don't usually let people see me cry," Crahan told Rolling Stone magazine. "It's too hard. But when I heard what Corey Taylor sang on the song 'XIX', I cried and cried and cried. It hurt so bad."

Taylor explained the song's title to Kerrang!: "It's pronounced 'XX', but it's supposed to represent a couple of different things," he said. "It's the 19th year of the band's existence, and it's also a metaphor for stage two, because track one on the 'Iowa' album was '515', and this is 'XIX', So in Roman numerals it's almost like a double of that. So it represents a new start, and seeing where the road leads to."

Taylor added: "Lyrically, it's really about getting back up on your feet after getting smashed in the mouth, basically. It's just kind of the start of, you know, what would become to me the second stage of the band's career."

Corey told Kerrang!: "What you hear on the record is what we did on the very first demo. It's all me, all raw, in one take, the first time we recorded it."

The last single released from "The Gray Chapter" was called "Killpop".

SLIPKNOT's "Summer's Last Stand" tour kicked off on July 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and wrapped on September 5 in Dallas.

The Devil In I Lyrics

buy from itunes

1. Verse
Undo these chains, my friend
I’ll show you the rage I’ve hidden
Perish the Sacrament
Swallow, but nothing’s forgiven
You and I can’t decide
Which of us was taken for granted
Make amends...
Some of us are destined to be outlived


1. Chorus
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
TOO MANY TIMES, WE’VE LET IT COME TO THIS
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
YOU’LL REALIZE I’M NOT YOUR DEVIL ANYMORE


1. Verse
Under the words of men
Something is tempting the father
Where is your will, my friend?
Insatiates never even bother
You and I, wrong or right
Traded a lie for the leverage
In between the lens in light
You're not what you seem


2. Chorus
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
TOO MANY TIMES, WE’VE LET IT COME TO THIS
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
YOU’LL REALIZE I’M NOT YOUR DEVIL...
I’M NOT YOUR DEVIL ANYMORE


Bridge
Your station - is abandoned
- Fool You cause I know what you’ve done
Sensation - Depravation
You should’ve burned when you turned on everyone


3. Chorus
SO STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
TOO MANY TIMES, WE’VE LET IT COME TO THIS
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
OH, WHEN ALL THAT’S LEFT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
I KNOW YOU’LL FIND YOUR ANSWERS IN THE END
STEP INSIDE - SEE THE DEVIL IN I
YOU’LL REALIZE I’M NOT YOUR DEVIL... ANYMORE


SO STEP INSIDE - STEP INSIDE
SEE THE DEVIL IN I, SEE THE DEVIL IN I

Guitarist Jim Root has now added a Jazzmaster to his signature models with Fender. See what he had to say about this latest collaboration in the video clip below.

Stark, dark and menacing, the Jim Root Jazzmaster guitar has got to be the most distinctively minimalist version of the instrument ever devised in the model’s entire half-century history. At the behest of the towering SLIPKNOT guitarist, gone are the dual tone circuits and barrage of controls. Gone are the fret position markers and enormous chrome bridge. Gone, in fact, is pretty much everything typical of a Jazzmaster guitar, replaced only by fearsome EMG 60 (neck) and 81 (bridge) humbucking pickups with brushed nickel covers, a single three-way switch, a single volume knob and a hard-tail Stratocaster bridge.
