Slipknot's Corey Taylor Praises Metal Fans For Unity

(TeamRock Radio) Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor says no other genre can match metal when it comes to a sense of community and togetherness and he says that when one metal act makes it big, it's a win for the whole movement.

He tells the Guardian: "What I love the most about the metal community is the sense of community that comes along with it. Unlike other genres there's a support system and common sense of appreciation for what we are all striving to achieve.

"It feels like when one of us crosses over and wins, we all win. We are, collectively, kind of treated like bastard stepchildren by the rest of the music world, so any time we get to fly the flag in their faces, to me that means that more people are hearing what I consider real music.

"You get used to being a bastard stepchild, it goes hand in hand with the attitude, and the reactionary vibe of the music itself - which makes you feel something whether you want it to or not." Read more here.
