You know Corey’s point might be better if anybody actually bought Weiland’s Christmas album. It’s a small independent release that to my knowledge hasn’t charted on the Billboard 200.
On Monday in Indianapolis, Slipknot singer Corey Taylor trashed Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland:
More and more people are only interested in money than fucking doing anything that’s good. I’m not saying everyone, but there’s a lot of fucking people out there who would rather just take your money and leave you with nothing,” he warned the audience. “I’ll give you another example. Does anyone know who Scott Weiland is? Do you know that Scott Weiland has a Christmas album now? Oh, it’s bad. It’s bad.”
Continued Taylor, “Let me fucking explain to you how bad it is. There is a video online of him singing, and he’s very serious. ‘Cause Christmas is serious. His hair is all slicked back and he’s in his shitty tuxedo.” Taylor then launched into a brief imitation of Weiland’s singing before getting to the heart of the matter. “So, I’m watching this — painfully watching this, because hey, know your enemy — and I’m just like, ‘Why?’ It’s not that he’s a bad singer, ’cause he’s not. I love STP, I love some of the shitt that he did with Velvet Revolver. It’s not that he’s a bad fucking singer. He’s a lazy piece of shit, is what he is at this point.”
