Slipknot's Corey Taylor Slams The Grammy Awards
The band have been nominated for seven Grammys in their 20 year career, picking up the Best Metal Performance gong for track Before I Forget in 2006. Asked what winning a Grammy would mean to him this time, Taylor says it would be "cool" but stresses it's not important if they don't.
He tells Finland's Radio Rock: "I know a lot of people who put a lot of stock in it, but I keep telling them, 'We've been nominated now like, God knows how many times. We won once. Cool. It's a popularity contest - that's all it is.'
"If it weren't, if it were just about the music, you would see more metal bands - not including us - nominated in other categories - and you just don't. It's all a goddamn popularity contest, and I don't have f***ing time for that sh*t."
"It's like everybody lives and breathes by whether or not they're gonna get this tiny statue. Why? So it can sit on a shelf and collect dust?" Read more here.
