Guitarist Jim Root has been fired from Stone Sour, the group he was in with Slipknot bandmate Corey Taylor.
Says the band in a statement:
“As some of you might have heard by now, Stone Sour and Jim Root have indeed parted ways. We were trying to wait until the completion of the new Slipknot album, but in light of recent events, we are going to confirm this information and move on. We feel it’s best for both bands and hope that is reflected in the days to come. We will give you more information when the time comes.”
Taylor added in a separate tweet: “Jim and I are still working together in Slipknot and the album is almost done.”
In an online posting, Root said that he is “not in that band anymore. Not my decision. Not happy about it.”
