The Band for Corey Taylor’s Solo Album Will Include Members of Stone Sour, Prong, and Walls of Jericho
Although these are undoubtedly troubling times through which we are currently living, all hope is not gone: Slipknot/ Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor is making a solo album, a history-changing event that will surely unite the universe, Wyld Stallyns-style.
And while we still don’t know how long we have to wait to Corey’s solo outing to arrive and succeed where Jesus Christ failed, we do have some more intel on the record, thanks to a new interview Knotfest.com‘s Mosh Talks with Beez. Like who will be in Corey’s solo band:
- Christian Martucci (Stone Sour) – guitar
- Jason Christopher (Prong) – bass
- Dustin Schoenhofer (Walls of Jericho) – drums
- Zach Throne (Greg Brady’s singing voice in The Brady Bunch Movie) – guitar
Taylor also revealed some stuff about the music on the album — like the fact that it will include “a song… that dates back to when I was in high school,” and that it will contain thirteen songs total (only half of the material he had ready for the album, last we heard):
“We did thirteen originals. We recorded seven covers, and then we did six acoustic versions of the originals that we put together. Or [maybe] it’s five. I can never keep that straight. Maybe it’s six [covers] and six [acoustic versions] — I can’t remember. All I know is that we did an insane amount of work in two and a half weeks — something that we thought was gonna take two months — and we destroyed it. We were doing a song a day. And we got done, and we were, like, ‘Eh, okay. What are we gonna do now?’ Everything has come together so quickly that it’s crazy.”
Corey went on to describe the album’s sound:
“It’s everything I wanted it to be. There’s some Slade in there, there’s some Johnny Cash, there’s some Alice in Chains. I mean, big choruses, fun rock, just huge solos — huge solos. It’s incredible. I, actually, two years ago, started teaching myself piano just so I can record this song that I wrote for my wife, and I was able to play it and record it. And it’s really good — it’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever written.”
Corey tickling the ivories? Move over, “November Rain”!
