Corey Taylor Says He Is Thinking About Recording A “Dark Jazz” Album With “Jazzy Versions” Of Slipknot & Stone Sour Songs

During a chat with RadioVegas.Rocks’s “Chaotic Radio”, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) was asked if he would ever consider recording country music. The singer responded by saying “fuck no,” but did add that he would consider doing a “dark jazz” album.

Taylor said the following when asked about the possibility of going country:

“No. Even coming from Iowa — fuck no! Absolutely not. And it’s not to say that I couldn’t write stuff like that. My interest would be more singer-songwriter kind of vibe, like SQUEEZE or something like that. Or — and I’ve actually been thinking about doing something like this — putting together a quartet or a quintet and doing a jazz album, like a dark jazz album, [and] recording it live in a room. It won’t sell shit. It would really just be for my own fucking personal collection… ‘Cause I love jazz. A lot of people don’t realize that — I listen to a lot of ’40s and ’50s jazz. And there is this… the haunting stuff that [Billie] Holiday would do, the older stuff that Charlie Parker would do, when he was really fucked up — that would be the stuff that I would be closer to. And I’ve got, actually, jazzy versions of some of my own songs that I would love to try. Probably something like ‘Prosthetics’ [by SLIPKNOT], I think would be really, really cool. And then ‘Bother’ — I’ve got a really cool jazzy version of ‘Bother’ that could be really cool.”

During a recent interview with Variety, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine talked a bit about the state of rock music saying: “Rock music is nowhere, really. I don’t know where it is.

It’s better than everything else.” This obviously set a lot people off, especially since Maroon 5 is more of a pop band. Among those who commented was Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), who tweeted the following in response to a fan:
