In an interview with Rock 102.1 KFMA, SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor says that he doesn’t know why DEICIDE frontman is upset with him, and claiming that he hasn’t talked with Glen Benton for more than a decade.
“I haven’t seen Glen Benton in ten years, you know, and I haven’t talked to him in even longer. So I don’t know why he’s upset with me, I don’t know why he’s upset with us.”
He continued: “We take out the bands who submit for us, man. It’s just that simple. I mean, out of respect to him and what DEICIDE has done over the years, it’s, like… If you talked to somebody, it wasn’t me, and they sure as hell didn’t tlak to me, ’cause I would have tried to do something.”
In a recent interview with Talk Toomey, DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton put Corey Taylor and SLIPKNOT on blast during after Corey promised him to take DEICIDE on tour with them – which never happened.
“Not to f*cking bust balls, but I’ll bust balls. SLIPKNOT: ‘Oh we’re going to take you guys out man, we’re going to take you guys out dude.’ Yeah blow me. That’s what I say to you. F*cking blow me Corey Taylor and all you f*gs. OK. ‘Oh we’re going to take DEICIDE out on tour with us and blah blah blah.’ Blowing air up our as—es, back in the day You know what, you never did a f*cking thing for us. You introduced us at a show once. Great thanks. How about a f*cking tour? How about f*cking helping us out a little bit? I mean we’ve only been doing this for several years. You guys were like ‘Dude you were what got me started.’ Well you know what, return the f*cking favor. You know what I mean?”
Benton added, “This is how they get away with getting out of having you on a tour. They offer you a sh*tty amount of money where it’s virtually impossible to do it, so you end up declining or cancelling or whatever the f*ck and then you look the like the idiot.”
“I’m not trying to bust balls, but when bands like Slipknot and sh*t, they f*cking… say they’re going take us out and sh*t… It’s just one big f*cking puff of air up your a—s. Not that I give a f*ck about opening for them, you know what I’m saying? Because I don’t. I’ll tell ya this about our band, we’ve done it our way, we’ll always do it our way and the success we’ve achieved, we’ve earned every little bit of it. We don’t compromise, we’re not about to kiss corporate America’s a—s so that’s why we’re still underground man.”
