Vended 2021

VENDED, led by Griffin Taylor, son of Corey Taylor from SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR, has released a music video for their latest single, “Am I The Only One.”

The band also features Simon Crahan, son of SLIPKNOT‘s Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan, on drums. The other members include Connor Grodzicki, Jeremiah Pugh, and Cole Espeland.

Their new song and the accompanying music video have attracted attention, with Corey Taylor expressing his pride in his son’s work with the band.

“I cannot tell you how proud I am of that boy,” Corey said in a recent interview with Andy Hall of the Des Moines, Iowa radio station Lazer 103.3. “And, of course, being a typical Taylor, on one hand I’m super proud of him, but I still can’t get him to clean anything, dude; he’s just such a nightmare.

“The funny thing is you and I were talking the day after he was born. And I keep going back to that night, going, ‘What’s he gonna be? Who’s he gonna be in life?’ And now 20 years later, almost 21, and he is this crazy metal pirate, just like I was. And I’m just, like, ‘Oh, I failed as a father. What did I do?’ I kept trying to push him to be anything other than what I do. And, yeah, dude, he’s crushing.

“I’ve heard the new stuff that he just recorded with [producer] Chris Collier, and it is so good,” Corey continued. “VENDED, their new stuff is so rad. Not only Griffin, man, but Simon‘s [Crahan] drumming sounds incredible. All of the guys — Cole [Espeland] and Grod [Connor Grodzicki] sound great [on guitar]. The guitars have just gone above and beyond. J.J.‘s [Jeremiah Pugh] crushing it on bass. I’m really, really proud of those guys, man. And then to be able to watch my boy get out there and just be himself and crush.

“It’s so easy for him, and it just makes me angry. Because he’s got all the great stuff that I never had when I was… He can wear anything. It’s just criminal. I’m just, like, ‘You don’t know how good you’ve got it, kid. The carbs haven’t caught you yet.'”
