Corey Taylor Pays Tribute To Scott Weiland: Performs ‘Sex Type Thing’

December 10, 2015

Slipknot and Stone Sour frogman Corey Taylor joined Royal Machines on stage on Monday (Dec 7) at The Roxy in West Hollywood, California to sing Stone Temple Pilots’ “Sex Type Thing” as a tribute to late STP frontman Scott Weiland.


Royal Machines is the “all-star covers fun-times band” featuring former Camp Freddy members Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction), Billy Morrison (ex-The Cult bassist), Donovan Leitch (son of folk singer Donovan), and Chris Chaney (bassist Jane’s Addiction), Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray singer) and drummer Josh Freese (The Vandals, A Perfect Circle).

Taylor famously slammed Weiland as a “lazy piece of shit” after the former STP singer recorded and released “The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”, an album of holiday favourites.

During the spoken-word segment at Corey’s November 28, 2011 “An Evening With Corey Taylor” solo appearance at Radio Radio in Indianapolis, Indiana, Taylor said, “Does anyone know who Scott Weiland is? Do you know that Scott Weiland has a Christmas album now? [Laughs] Oh, it’s bad. It’s bad. Let me fucking explain to you how bad it is. There is a video online of him singing, and he’s very serious. ‘Cause Christmas is serious. His hair is all slicked back and he’s in his shitty tuxedo. He goes [imitates Weiland’s singing]. So I’m watching this painfully watching this, because hey, know your enemy and I’m just like, ‘Why?’ It’s not that he’s a bad singer, ’cause he’s not. I love STP, I love some of the shit that he did with Velvet Revolver. It’s not that he’s a bad fucking singer. He’s a lazy piece of shit, is what he is at this point. ‘I’m gonna get up here’ [imitates Weiland singing and makes snoring sound].”


Weiland was found dead on his tour bus last Thursday (December 3) at the age of 48. The suspected cause of death is cardiac arrest, although an official report has yet to be released.
