Corey Taylor Weighs In On AC/DC With Axl Rose Debate

(New Rock Times) Corey Taylor says Malcolm Young is a bigger loss to AC/DC than Brian Johnson and he has backed the decision by the veteran band to keep going as he booms 'who are we to decide when it's time for AC/DC to be done or not?'

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman fielded the AC/DC topic on the latest leg of his solo tour which is including question and answer sessions. During the May 8 event at Koko in London, Taylor weighs in:

"There are several ways to look at that situation. There are AC/DC fans who are, like, 'You know what? I just wanna see them play for, like, the last eight, nine shows and then see what happens.' There are other people who are, like, 'F*** that! I don't like the way they handled the whole Brian situation,' which I can totally see.

"However, none of us are behind the scenes. None of us know what's been going on. None of us know anything. And I learned that lesson with the Guns N' Roses thing. I mean, I'm talking about… I'm a huge Guns N' Roses fan. So when [the classic GNR lineup] started to kind of come back together, I was, like, 'Meh.' But then, talking to some of them, I really saw the whole picture and was, like, 'Okay, I can get behind this.'"

Taylor adds: "So I don't know enough about what is going on behind the scenes [in the AC/DC camp]. I can certainly appreciate the fact that Angus [Young, AC/DC guitarist] wants to finish those shows. 'Cause here's the thing you've gotta understand: he's been doing gigs since he was 17 years old. He has been giving everything - and I mean everything he's f***ing got - night after night after night after night for f***ing fifty years.

"Who are we, who are we to decide when it's time for AC/DC to be done or not? Am I f***ing right, or am I f***ing right?" Read more and watch the full video here.
