Inside Corey Taylor’s Feud With Axl Rose

For a band as heavy as Slipknot, Corey Taylor actually has a much more eclectic musical taste than just heavy metal.

Outside of the ultra-heavy, Corey also loved the hard-hitting rock and roll of the ‘80s like Metallica and Guns N Roses.

As the years go on and as Axl Rose gets more and more demanding though, Corey had enough of Axl’s antics when appearing on the same bill as GNR. 

When interviewed on the Opie Show back in 2015, Corey talked about playing a festival where Guns N Roses were headlining and decided to rub his more delicate parts on Axl’s piano before they had even arrived. 

When being chastised by a GNR fan about the whole incident, Corey didn’t seem to have any regrets about the incident, saying:

“I mean, anybody who makes his fans wait for two to three hours for him to go on stage, I have no respect for…I love Guns, dude. I love Appetite For Destruction; I think that’s a fantastic album. But when you make your fans wait that long — and I don’t give a fuck what hard-on just said: ‘Oh, we expect it.’ Well, you’re a fucking idiot then. All right? Figure it the fuck out.”

Taking place before the reunion, Corey couldn’t help but poke fun at the “new” version of the band as well, saying:

You know why there are really no original fucking members of Guns n Roses left? Because Axl made ’em wait three fucking hours! You want an Appetite reunion? Tell him to fucking stop being a douchebag.”

The original Guns are back though, but it also seems that Axl is still up to some diva behavior, including just last week when he was called out for injuring a fan when throwing the microphone during one of his more recent gigs

Guns might still sell out venues all around the world, but you probably shouldn’t expect Corey to be itching to join them for a tour any time soon.
