On Slipknot/Stone Sour’s frontman Corey Taylor’s 43rd birthday, Metal Hammer posted an interview they had with him discussing, among other things, how he got kicked out of high school, being homeless, and how he joined Slipknot. For those that know Taylor, he has no filter and is not afraid to express his honesty, including tales of his old partying days:

“When it really amped up. When we were all just outta control. I just remember laying in a shower buck-ass naked, being filmed, with two girls peeing on me. It was nuts, but it was just so much fun at the time.”

Taylor also talked about nearly jumping off of a hotel balcony, when he decided to cut out the booze, and instances where people joked about him being dead. Knowing that Taylor is alive and running with an ambition that many are missing, he was asked how he felt about himself now, which led to Taylor opening up about writing a song for a pop artist he loves, Robbie Williams:

“I’ll tell you what, man. I’m actually at a really good point in my life. I have accomplished a lot with my life and that makes me want to do even more. I want to fucking go above and beyond and really do it all. All these new dreams are coming out for me. I want to write a book. I want to fucking work on a screenplay and a comic, you know? I want to do a spoken word thing. I want to do an acoustic album. I want to a country album! I’m probably going to end up opening a club in Des Moines. I’m still doing Great Big Mouth records. I want to be a total dick and use my notoriety to be in a movie! I want to write songs for other people that are so outside of my genre that people who know anything about me are like ‘Wha…?!’ I actually wrote a song for Robbie Williams. I just love Robbie Williams. He’s fucking amazing. He cracks me up, he’s a great entertainer, he’s an amazing singer. And, I just love the energy that he’s got. I know that I’ll probably fucking lose cool points with a few people for that, but I just fucking love him, I think he’s great.”

After reading the interview, Now we’re looking forward to his upcoming book even more.
