Corey Taylor has performed plenty of solo shows in the past which have been covering songs accompanied by his friends.
Now Taylor has revealed in an interview with Eddie Trunk that he’s considering doing a solo album and tour. Taylor stated that he already has mentioned it to his bandmates in both Slipknot and Stone Sour, estimates that this could possibly happen in 2021.
“I’m actually giving serious thought to doing a solo album and a solo run. Obviously, it’s not gonna happen for a while. And I’m actually giving you the exclusive, ’cause I haven’t told anybody that I was gonna do that… Honestly, it’s something that I didn’t even consider for a long time until people just keep beating me up about it, asking me when I was gonna do it. And the more they kept asking, the more I just kept thinking about it, the more I was just, like, ‘You know what? If I don’t do it now, I’m never gonna do it.’ So, yeah, probably 2021. I’m actually putting a band together. I’ve already told the guys in Stone Sour and Slipknot that I’m doing it, just out of respect. And, yeah, I’m gonna start working on a solo album. That’s all I’ll give you for now. But, yeah, that’s the plan as of right now.”
