Stone Sour have been on a hiatus for five years, and the way Corey Taylor talks, it might be a permanent thing.
Taylor was asked by Eddie Trunk about the band's status and he said, "Stone Sour, there's still so much drama and issues [between the members]. To me, it's just not something I desire to do. And songs in Stone Sour that I want to play are the ones that I wrote in the first place."
And that's why Taylor would prefer to keep doing solo shows outside Slipknot. "So to me, I would rather go out with a group of dudes who I've known forever and have a great time playing these songs and have the audience enjoy it because they see a bunch of dudes up there enjoying it than try to force issues on an audience that nobody really wants to be a part of, let's put it that way."
Taylor also admitted that he's had a hard time letting what Stone Sour built up go. "It's been a bitter pill to swallow, but I've also reached an age where I refuse to waste any time with people who I don't enjoy being with, let's put it that way. And that's saying more than I actually should be saying."
