SLIPKNOT's Corey Taylor & Shawn Crahan Open Their Hearts To The World!

The 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is currently demolishing ear drums all across the continental United States. So far, America's largest Heavy Music festival has broken all expectations. As a matter of fact, the opening concert in San Bernardino had a record-breaking attendance of 26,105 — 4,000 more than the previous attendance record set by the tour.

This years fest is headlined by SLIPKNOT, who have proven that even with two men down (Paul Gray passed away in 2010, and James Root had his appendix burst prior to the fest) they are always on point with their musical performances. The circus of music has a lot of mayhem lined up in their agenda for the next year and it wont be pretty.

Here is a Q&A with Shawn Crahan (Clown) of Slipknot, where he really opens up and talks about love (it’s impossible to love but easy to hate!), death (the memory of Paul Gray) + teddy bears (how he is one, that is). 

He also addresses both Mayhem + Knotfest at length!!! Don't miss Slipknot headlining every night on Mayhem this summer!!! Make sure you also check out the interview that Mistress Juliya conducted with Corey Taylor on Independence Day!
