A new nine-minute clip featuring behind-the-scenes interview and performance footage from a recent stop on STONE SOUR and SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor‘s “An Evening With Corey Taylor” solo tour can be seen below. The concerts feature Taylor doing both spoken-word and acoustic performances, along with question-and-answer sessions with the audience. At two separate shows he described producer Rick Rubin as “overrated” and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weilandas “lazy.”
Taylor recently gave Australian web site FasterLouder some more details about STONE SOUR‘s fourth album, which he hopes the band will begin recording early in 2012.
Taylor has described his vision for the record as “very grand” and has said that it could end up being a double concept album. As for the storyline, he said, “It’s basically the story of a man who’s trying to figure it out. He can’t figure out if he’s happier when he’s miserable, or if he’s miserable about not being happy. It’s almost like a mid-life crisis in a way. He’s young enough that he knows that there’s still a lot of life to live, but he’s old enough to realize that he can’t be hung up on the romance of teenage depression and youthful aggression.”
Taylor will tour Australia in February with SLIPKNOT, as well as the U.S. next summer, but said he’s “not even thinking about” writing a new SLIPKNOT album yet.
