Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has ripped into Stone Temple Pilots’ frontman, Scott Weiland for recording a Christmas themed album, calling him a ‘lazy piece of shit’.
Taylor has been touring solo and hosting Q and A sessions during his shows, last week we slammed Rick Rubin calling him overrated and overpaid.
During his show in Indiana on Monday night Taylor said:
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.
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… There is a video online of him singing, and he’s very serious. Because Christmas is serious. His hair is all slicked back and he’s in his shitty tuxedo.
It’s not that he’s a bad singer, ’cause he’s not… I love some of the shit 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.
Corey Taylor will be touring Australia with Slipknot for the 2012 Soundwave Festival.
