Corey Taylor Talks About Jim Root: "When he got back home, he had a 102° temperature, went to the clinic and found out his appendix burst two and a half weeks ago."
Recently, Corey Taylor was interviewed by the Canadian website Jam! Some of the subjects covered during the interview had to do with Slipknot's current participation at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, and the brand NEW compilation 'Antennas to Hell' (available now). We also had some words of praise for guitarist Jim Root, who was recently treated for a burst appendix that forced him to miss the first few dates of the Mayhem Fest.
"Dude, he’s out of his mind. We were actually finishing the guitars on the NEW Stone Sour album when it happened. He was complaining about a pain in his side. When he got back home, he had a 102° temperature, went to the clinic and found out his appendix burst two and a half weeks ago. The fact that he was still walking and talking is crazy."
About 'Antennas to Hell': "Honestly, in a weird way, it’s very gratifying. You can tell where we came from, and where we got to with 'All Hope is Gone'. But the beautiful thing is that the essence is still there. We never forgot why we loved making music. We never forgot that frenetic energy that we invariably put into everything we do, and that sense of urgency that never left us. I truly hope it never does."
