Corey Taylor’s like me. Dude speaks his fucking mind.
In a new interview I read about on Blabbermouth, the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman calls out Kiss for being such babies about this fucking Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
“On one hand, you’re stoked being a Kiss fan, but on the other hand it’s, like, ‘Can you guys just put aside your petty issues and realize that without one another you wouldn’t have been able to do this? Can you just set stuff aside and do one show for the fans of the original lineup again? And then you never have to see each other again?’”
Kiss are not playing the event, and certain members are not happy about that.
Adds Corey: “Without (Ace Frehley and Peter Criss), the other two guys wouldn’t be where they are! And that’s just me layin’ it straight! I might not ever get a kind word from anybody in that band anymore. But I think it’s petty and I think it’s ridiculous! Figure it out! Show respect, because sometimes it’s not about you, it’s about the fans.”
I’m finding I agree more and more with Corey Taylor, and while I don’t dig his bands, I have grown to respect the dude as a person.
I wonder if I’ll be alive when Slipknot enters the Rock Hall.
It will happen.
