Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Confirms He Recorded With Velvet Revolver

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently told Loudwire that he recorded nine or ten songs with Velvet Revolver.

“I think it was ten [songs that I recorded with Velvet Revolver]… I think it was… It’s either nine or ten,” Taylor said (see video below). “There was a handful that we wrote, and then there was a handful that I kind of rearranged a little bit based on music that they already had. So it wasn’t music that we kind of wrote together. I mean, there were, like, three… I think there was three songs that we wrote together, which were actually pretty sweet. And then the rest of it was me writing to music that they already had that I thought was pretty cool.”

He continued: “Yeah, the world will probably never hear ’em, which is fine, because, I mean, I would want another crack at kind of working on some of that stuff anyway. But that will never happen, so it’s…. You know, it’s all good.”

    Never happen? VR hasn’t had a singer since 2009! It’s not like any of them are terribly busy, that it couldn’t happen. Slash is busying touring with the poor man’s Scott Stapp, Duff is more or less a hired gun, and nobody knows where the fuck Sorum or that other guy who played guitar are these days

    I’m actually surprised this hasn’t happened already. A VR with Cory on vocals would probably generate some serious interest AND bank

      Slash touring with Scott Stapp??

      • Thelonious Funk

        I don’t think it’s THE genuine, batshit crazy Scott Stapp. Some dude that sounds just like him and had a band with the other guys from Creed, I think

        • ITURBIDE

          haha…ok…well, I think Alter Bridge its a great band and Myles Kennedy sings much (really much) better than the batshit crazy…just saying…

            Fair enough. I’m not a fan, but I don’t hold it against anyone for the musicians they enjoy and support

    He must have said something to piss one of them off, that they won’t consider working with him.

  • Ubee Fako

    Corey Taylor can have and do whatever he wishes. That annoys some people. EAT IT.

  • Chris

    I’d like to hear this. I’m not a fan of Taylor’s bands personally, but he can sing, and both VR albums were musically pretty solid.

  • Hwang Sunghyeop

    Can’t wait.

    leak them please!!!

    Always thought Corey Taylor would have been one of the best voices to fill Layne’s shoes.
