During an appearance on the latest episode of the “Someone Who Isn’t Me” podcast, hosted by Daniel P. Carter of BBC Radio 1‘s “The Rock Show”, SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor revealed that he has recently begun thinking about stepping away from the band for a while.
Asked if he thinks he will ever decide that he is “tired of touring.” Taylor replied: “You know, honestly, if you’d asked me a year ago, I would have said no. But, I mean, just now… I’m just kind of starting to… I’m forty-two; I’m not young anymore. And as willing as my will is, I’m just beat up, man. I mean, I might as well be 60 in SLIPKNOT years, for Christ’s sake.”
He continued: “I don’t know if I would retire. I might step away from SLIPKNOT at some point, just because the way the music is, and that sense of energy, I don’t know if I could be able to do that into my fifties. And I would never want the band to feel like I was holding them back, because I just couldn’t physically do it. So that means I wouldn’t completely quit music; I would probably just step away from SLIPKNOT.”
