A few years back, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor spoke about the possibility of touring with Mushroomhead, Mudvayne and GWAR. Obviously, some things have changed since then, but Live Metal caught up with Taylor and asked him if it was still a possibility. He’s still up for it, despite the fact that GWAR is down a frontman and Mudvayne has yet to return from their hiatus:
I’m working on that, honestly. It probably won’t happen right away, just because (Slipknot’s) been gone for awhile and we have all these changes, and we’ve got a new album coming out. So we want to kinda take the first six or seven months and just kind of re-establish ourselves. But, I can say it’s on my radar and it’s one of the things I want to do, like for real. Honestly now, especially now since (GWAR vocalist) (Dave) Brockie’s dead—that was one of the guys that I really wanted to tour with. It was GWAR, (Slipknot), Mushroomhead and Mudvayne. I really wanted to put that together. So trust me. Hopefully sooner than later we will see what happens.
This still seems like more a wish list for Taylor than anything else. With Hellyeah a successful band, Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett don’t seem in any hurry to reform Mudvayne. GWAR appear to be moving on without Dave Brockie, but aside from appearances at the GWAR B-Q and Riot Fest, haven’t announced any full scale tours yet. And of course Slipknot probably won’t be doing any touring until they have an album out, and there’s no word on when that’s happening. Mushroomhead will be touring this Summer on the Mayhem Fest, and we’re sure they’d clear their schedule for the opportunity to tour with their semi-rivals.
