02) Corey Taylor believes Slipknot could continue without him
Lets face it, we’ve seen AC/DC, Queen, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, and more continue without the original frontman. There have also been periods when Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Motley Crue had a different singer. Therefore, it’s safe to say everyone is replaceable whether you want it to happen or not. Corey Taylor recently spoke to Metal Hammer and expressed how he could see the band continuing even if he decided it was time to call things quits.
“I mean, it’s crossed my mind as the years have gone on. It’s gotten harder to do this. You think about when the end is. No one thought we’d be doing it 20 years later.
If I just couldn’t do it anymore, I’d just stop, but that doesn’t mean that the band would stop. If I can’t do it then someone might be able to take my place.
I’ve thought about it before: If the right person came around and the guys were into it then I’ll just head off. We can’t shortchange anyone.”
