Corey Taylor Says Slipknot Helps Fans Face Global Tragedies
In the wake of the Paris terror attacks and other such incidents around the world, Taylor described the world as "insane" and "crazy" - but says that Slipknot try to reach out to listeners and support good causes during troubled times.
He said: "Our fans are very capable of looking at what's going on right now and being able to process it than fans who listen to music that's a little more chipper, a little more happy.
"It's a shock for them, because they're not used to it, but because our fans have been able to adjust and use that anger to kind of even themselves out, they can look at it and they can process it.
"They can go, 'Okay, now what needs to be done? Instead of offering prayers and thoughts, what needs to be done?' And I think that's one of the things that we offer as a band." Read more and watch video of the conference here.
