Slipknot’s Corey Taylor says he ‘might step away’
Slipknot singer Corey Taylor recently did an interview with BBC Radio 1 and raised doubts over the band’s future, saying he might “step away” from the group.
Taylor spoke to Daniel P Carter for the Someone Who Isn’t Me podcast. Asked whether he will ever grow “tired of touring”, Taylor replied: “You know, honestly, if you’d asked me a year ago, I would have said no. But I’m just kind of starting to”.
The singer continued: “I’m 44 [years old]; I’m not young anymore. And as willing as my will is, I’m just beat up, man. I mean, I might as well be 60 in Slipknot years, for Christ’s sake.”
“I don’t know if I would retire,” Taylor added. “I might step away from Slipknot at some point, just because the way the music is, and that sense of energy, I don’t know if I could be able to do that into my fifties. And I would never want the band to feel like I was holding them back, because I just couldn’t physically do it. So that means I wouldn’t completely quit music; I would probably just step away from Slipknot.”
Meanwhile, Slipknot is touring North America this summer with Marilyn Manson & Of Mice. No Vancouver date.
