Corey Taylor is not only the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, he’s actually a pretty powerful and respected voice in the Metal community.
Taylor recently opened up during an interview with The Guardian about what he sees and how his bands hope to change things going forward.
The whole interview is worth a read but here are some of the highlights:
On Slipknot’s Fans – “I don’t ever want our fans to feel like we’re judging them because of color, religion, culture, upbringing, etc. We welcome everyone, we always have and we always will”
On the band’s fight against racism – “Slipknot has dedicated itself to bringing people together, to fighting racism, to fighting hate in general since the day we were started. I don’t have time for people who judge other people by the color of their skin. If that in itself offends some of my fans, then I’m sorry, you’re wrong.”
On the upcoming Presidential Election – “The fact that Donald Trump is still is viable candidate makes me want to eat my f****** shoes. There are too many candidates focused on dividing us, and not enough talking about bringing us together. And that’s one of the reasons why I support Bernie Sanders”
