Altitude TV has uploaded video footage of SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR lead vocalist Corey Taylor talking about his new solo project, THE JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND, and the future of SLIPKNOT. Watch the clip below.
In a recent interview with ARTISTdirect.com, Taylor was asked if it becomes easier to sift through the darkness as he gets older. "Oh yeah, absolutely!" he replied. "You can compartmentalize a little better. You don't just hone in on one thing and feel like that defines you. I know a lot of guys who get very one-dimensional because they just exist in that plane. Whereas the older you get, the more you feel like you understand yourself — you know your limits, you know your boundaries and you know how far you can take it. The darkness comes when you realize there are so many lines you can cross. That's really what it comes down to. The more you know yourself, the more you can go there. I think that's why it's gotten easier for me to do that."
When asked what he wants people to take away from THE JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND, Taylor said, "Everybody is multi-faceted and multi-dimensional. I don't want to be that cardboard cutout rock star. I never have, and I never will. I want to be the guy who wants to have it all. I want to be David Bowie. I want to be Trent Reznor. Those are the things I aspire to be. At the end of the day, I merely want to be a great songwriter who has no fear when it comes to that stuff. The older I've gotten, the better my writing's gotten — the more I take risks and say more than I've ever said in the past."
