Corey Taylor is comfortably ensconced in Stone Sour for the time being, but let's check out some truth vs. fiction about a couple of other matters: is he the "known singer" who's working under wraps with Velvet Revolver?
"To be continued!" Taylor tells Billboard.com with a long, hearty laugh. Neither a confirmation nor a denial -- and he's not saying anything more than that, either. As for the future of Slipknot in the wake of bassist Paul Gray's sudden death in May, Taylor is more forthcoming but hardly definite.
"I go back and forth," he acknowledges. Though the group has three Sonisphere Festival shows this summer in Europe and is tipped to play at this year's Rock in Rio festival, Taylor says that "there are moments when I'm like, 'Let's keep going for (Gray),' and there are moments when I'm like, 'It's not the same without him.' Right now my main concern is baby steps. We lost a huge piece of our band. We lost a huge member of our family -- in my opinion the biggest -- and it's a different vibe now. So right now I'm just taking it step by step, and I can only hope that the other guys in the band are as well."
