SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor joined NIGHT RANGER on stage during the band’s July 16 performance at Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin to perform the veteran rockers’ 1982 single “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me.” Video of the performance can be seen below.
In an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, NIGHT RANGER singer/bassist Jack Blades explained how the collaboration came about: “[Guitarist] Brad [Gillis] and I had met him a few years ago, with Eddie Trunk on ‘That Metal Show.’ We were excited to share the stage with him at Rock Fest and I asked him if he wanted to sing the second verse of ‘Don’t Tell Me You Love Me’… and if he knew the words. He said, ‘Hell yeah,’ and out he came and killed it.” Blades went on to describe Taylor as “a brilliant songwriter and an amazing talent. We are happy to call him our friend.”
