Along with Taylor, band also includes Simon Crahan (drums; son of SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan) and Jeremiah Pugh (bass),Cole Espeland (lead guitar) and Connor Grodzicki (rhythm guitar).
“I want everyone to know, VENDED is going to be the biggest band in the world. We have stuff cooking that’s going to make f**king people s**t their pants,” Simon told Metal Hammer.
On what he thinks about people comparing his band with his father’s band, SLIPKNOT, Simon had this to say: “When people say that kind of thing, I respond back with a clown emoji to be an a**hole. It’s not like my dad handed everything to us. His fans are the ones who decided to like us. If you don’t like us, you could just not say anything, but you choose to waste five minutes of your day to say something that’s going to make me laugh my f**king a*s off, because I know that I am succeeding. I say, ‘Where is your band?’”
“I personally don’t have a problem with people relating us to SLIPKNOT,” Simon added. “I mean look at our fathers, it’s going to be there. I play drums better than my father and that’s a fact, and when people say Griffin sounds like his dad, well duh, that’s obvious. I honestly think he is going to be better than his dad.”
