During a recent appearance on the “Thunder Underground,” Deen Castronovo (Journey, Revolution Saints) was asked if there are any artists he would like to collaborate with someday. He responded by saying he would “love to work” with Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour).
Castronovo said the following:
“Corey Taylor. I’d love to work with Corey someday. I don’t know if that will ever happen. I’ve met him a few times. He’s the sweetest frickin’ man. And in my opinion, he’s a genius. The books he’s written, the spoken-word stuff. He’s a brilliant artist all around… Even his solo band. I always wanted to be in Stone Sour. I loved stone sour.
I would love to get hold of Corey and say, ‘Dude, just let me play drums on a record or a song or something.’ I’d love to do something with him. Or have him guest sing on a Revolution Saints song. He’d be sick — just sick.
[Corey is] a badass. The Slipknot stuff was unbelievable — he’s amazing with that. But I loved what he did with Stone Sour and his new solo band. I think the guy’s just so well rounded. He’s got a good, solid head on his shoulders. His feet are on the ground. He doesn’t believe the hype. And he’s brilliant, in my opinion — he’s just brilliant. So if you’re watching, Corey, or listening, dude, let me play… I’ll pay you — I’ll pay you to [let me] play on a song.”
