Slipknot To Carry On With or Without Corey Taylor

(Gibson) Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison told the Artisan News Service that the band will proceed "with or without" singer Corey Taylor, who is reticent to return to the road after the death of bassist Paul Gray last May.

At the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles last week, Jordison told reporters, "As far as I'm concerned, Slipknot's my baby and I have a bunch of [new] songs written. And I'm in rehearsal right now with all the guys and it's completely on fire. Donnie's [Steele, a former Slipknot bassist who soon will act as the band's touring bassist] doing a great job. And as far as Slipknot's concerned, it'll always exist with [Corey] or without him. So that's it."

Slipknot soon will hit a bevy of European festivals, about which Jordison says, "Honestly, those are gonna be some of the most amazing shows. And I think certain people will wise up after that." In December, Taylor told Artisan News Service that touring without Gray was "a big decision."

"There's still a part of me that's kind of on the fence about it," Taylor said. "It all comes down to the band at the end of the day and how we handle it. And if we can come together as men and handle it the right way and do it for the right reasons do it for the fans, do it for the family it could be the first of baby steps to see what happens in the future. The wonderful thing and the worst thing about this band is that there's no other band like Slipknot, so we handle things the way we handle it." more on this story
