Corey Taylor commented on Shawn “Clown” Crahan‘s recent statement about SLIPKNOT starting to work on a new album without him, telling Hard Drive(as transcribed by Ultimate-Guitar.com):
“Apparently, as Clown let me know through the press, things are going on without Corey Taylor.
“So, thanks for that, Clown! Heard you loud and clear. You have my number.
“I don’t know what the hell the problem is.”
“Hey man, it’s all good. He’s really into being a part of the writing process, always has been. Him and Jim have always written very well together.
“The cool thing about that is that once it’s time I’ll know, and I’ll come and I’ll hear some stuff.
“It’s great being able to hear stuff for the first time. And hearing some stuff I know I’ve never heard before. I’m excited. We’ll see what happens.”
