Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On Vaccine Mandates: “If You’re Going To Put People At Risk Of Getting Sick, You Shouldn’t Want To Go To A Show”

During a recent interview with Consequence, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) was asked about his thoughts on vaccine mandates at live shows. The frontman responded by saying “there shouldn’t be a mandate, but guess what, man, if you’re going to put people at risk of getting sick, you shouldn’t want to go to a show.”

Taylor said the following:

“People act like getting a vaccine is signing a deal with the devil. It’s been so politicized and spun out of control in these conspiratorial echo chambers that people forget that you can go find all the info you want online to educate yourself about everything about these vaccines.”

“The fact that [vaccines] have been demonized, almost to the point of these gnarly conspiracy theories, no wonder why people are afraid of it — because they’re listening to the wrong people.”

He also added:

“Do I think it should be a requirement for people to be vaccinated to go to shows? Yes and no. Here’s the thing: there shouldn’t be a mandate, but guess what, man, if you’re going to put people at risk of getting sick, you shouldn’t want to go to a show. That’s common sense. And if you do put people at risk, then you’re a fuckin’ asshole. And you shouldn’t be let in anyway. So, for me, it’s a common-sense thing, but we don’t have a lot of common sense these days, man.”
