Slipknot’s Corey Taylor can add Axl Rose to his list of potential enemies. During a recent appearance on the Opie Show, a caller ringed up the show to rip Taylor over an incident regarding Axl Rose in which the singer placed his testicles on the piano of the Guns N’ Roses frontman. Taylor then responded to the fan’s question:
“How dare you do that to someone like Axl?” “Knowing Axl, it’s quite easy,” he replies. “I mean, anybody who makes his fans wait for two to three hours for him to go onstage, I have no respect for.”
The fan tells Taylor, “You wish you could be Axl Rose,” which gets the singer to admit that he loves Guns N’ Roses, “but when you make your fans wait that long — and I don’t give a fuck what hard-on just said, ‘Oh, we expect it’ — well, you’re a fucking idiot then. All right? Figure it the f— out. You know why there are really no original fucking members of Guns N’ Roses left? Because he made them wait three fucking hours! You want an Appetite reunion? Tell him to fucking stop being a douchebag.”
This isn’t the first time Taylor has gone after a popular music figure. The Slipknot frontman has recently taken exception to Kanye West for claiming to the be “The greatest living rock star on the planet”
During a visit to the Music Choice studios in New York City, Taylor recorded a video message for the controversial rapper that said: “Kanye, you are not — not — the greatest living rock star of all time. The fact that you had to tell people that kind of says it all. You remind of the guy who brags about pussy. They never get as much as they brag about. Stop it. [Slaps wrist] Stop it!”
In other West rock and roll news, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins discussed being neighbors with Kanye West in a recent interview with NME. Hawkins said he rides his bike daily near the “big gnarly mansion where Kanye and his chick live I guess.”
“He lives pretty close to me, strangely enough,” he said. “Before he bought a house [in the neighborhood] he was apparently looking at it and this estate agent told me that he was showing him the house and he looks round and says, ‘Is this place secure? Can anybody get in or out?’ And then right at that time I came flying down the hill [on my bike] into the neighborhood.”
Hawkins said that West complained at first but backtracked when he realized that he was the drummer from the Foo Fighters, so he wasn’t a danger to the security of the home.
Dave Grohl also said the recent petition against West performing at Glastonbury, which attracted over 133,000 votes, will only help West and could lead to the greatest concert of all time.
“I don’t know that much about Kanye’s music but right now Kanye vs Glastonbury is about as close to that old school [Public Enemy] vibe as you’re going to get,” he added.
“I don’t know who the dude is that started the petition but I think every one of those votes is only fuelling Kanye’s fucking fire and it could be the greatest show of all time.”
