COREY TAYLOR was asked about the remarks on the KISW 99.9 radio station at this past weekend’s Pain In The Grass event in Auburn, Washington, to which he responded (see video below): “I’m not talking about that d*ckhead. Why do I give a sh*t what Chad Kroeger says?
“I’ll tell you what. This is how I figured it out. Chad Kroeger is to rock what KFC is to chicken.
“Is that wrong? I feel like I’m not wrong.
“I’ll still eat it, but I’m not gonna feel good about it. It tastes like the same thing.”
In an interview with Sweden’s Metal Covenant on May 27 in Stockholm, NICKELBACK frontman Chad Kroeger said that STONE SOUR sounds like NICKELBACK Lite and has challenged Corey Taylor to “write a hit song.”
Later, Corey Taylor responded to Kroeger during in-studio appearance on the Arizona radio station KUPD:
“You know what? I’ve never said it was easy to write a hit song,” Corey said. “I don’t know what the hell planet he’s living on. Apparently it’s Planet Kroeger, and there must be good weed there, ’cause he’s an idiot.”
Taylor added that he was “so cued up to say some stuff” about Chad but then he “just started reading all the comments online” in response to Kroeger‘s words about STONE SOUR and SLIPKNOT. “I don’t have to say a damn thing — he is not a liked person,” Corey said. “That’s all we have to say about it.”
