10 Unforgettable Bleeped Corey Taylor Interview Moments
Our first video interview with Corey Taylor took place in January 2013, when we dubbed him the Samuel L. Jackson of metal. Why? Because nobody in metal says “motherf—er” better and more often than CMFT. After accepting the honor, Corey told us how he was almost expelled from kindergarten due to his love for profanity, namely his stringing together of the words, “Motherf—ing t--ty a—hole s—tty.”
We met up with Taylor again in the summer of 2013 to speak about his book A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, a memoir about Corey’s various encounters with the paranormal. Though he’s a believer in supernatural events, Taylor made sure to distance himself from celebrity psychics like John Edward. “John Edward is just a tool,” Corey professed. “And you can f—ing print that.”
During our ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’ segment with the musician, we cleared up the inspiration behind Slipknot’s track “Eeyore.” Instead of being written about a fan who issued a death threat to Corey, the song references a guy nicknamed Thor who would be an “a—hole” in the pit at every metal show during Taylor’s formative years. “One night, everybody got around him and they f—ing housed his a—,” Taylor told us. “They worked him out and he wasn’t in the pit for a while. S—t happens, too bad it happened down your leg, bud!”
