Slipknot's Jim Root Fired Up By Stone Sour Firing (A Top Story)

On Wednesday Slipknot's Jim Root Fired Up By Stone Sour Firing was a top story. Here is the recap: Slipknot's Jim Root says in a new interview that his unexpected firing from Stone Sour, the other band he was in with Corey Taylor, motivated him to hone his skills.

Root tells The Des Moines Register, "When you're sort of blindsided by something like that, it kind of makes you wonder what the motivations or intentions are, or why it has to be like that, when really all that needs to happen is a Slipknot record, then we could go back to business as usual later."

He adds, "For whatever reason, it happened and it sort of lit a fire under my a** to realize that it doesn't really matter who you are or what your role is in any particular thing that you do. You always have to be on top of your game, because you never know what is going to happen.

"It definitely made me want to put my nose to the grindstone and hone my skills a little more. When something like that happens, it's like getting dumped."
