Slipknot’s Corey Taylor: Gene Simmons Needs To Get Out More

November 14, 2014

Slipknot/Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor weighed in on the recent “rock is dead” statement made by Kiss bassist Gene Simmons during a recent interview with a Texas radio station.



Taylor said, “I love the fact that we had the highest sales in a first week for a metal band (with new album .5: The Gray Chapter) the whole year. To be honest, I’m proud of that . . . You don’t always need a platinum album to relate that to success so, with all due respect to Mr. Simmons, he needs to get out more.”
