Corey Taylor Reveals His Resolution for 2018
A man who has openly learnt through his own bitter experiences, Kerrang!’s old pal Corey Taylor enjoyed a fantastic 2017 with Stone Sour. Despite a year he describes as “fucking insane”, the self-confessed motormouth isn’t done with slating the haters and he has one simple resolution in 2018…
“My New Year’s Resolution is to stop engaging trolls about politics on Twitter because, honestly, I would rather take a fucking saw to my own face than deal with that kind of bullshit anymore,” says Corey.
“It’s so unnecessary and pathetic, and I can’t take any more of that shit. It’s not even that I have a problem with their politics: it’s their self-righteous indignation that comes with it.
“For all the harrumphing that the right does about the left being a bunch of snowflakes, they are the ones that are so butthurt about so much shit it’s not even funny. I look at them and think, ‘I’m not going to sit here and debate a crying child.’ If there was a button on Twitter that asked ‘Would you like to block with relish?’ then that’s the one I’d be hitting. They can enjoy their spoilt brat infancy. I’ve got kids of my own, without having to deal with kids that I don’t need to take care of.
“One message I would impart to Kerrang! readers is this: never stop educating yourself. If something that you believe is right turns out to be wrong, you have to embrace that – you can’t just reject that out of spite. I’m one of the most wrong people on the planet, and I also have one of the biggest fucking mouths, so it’s one of the biggest lessons I’ve had to learn. It’s going to make you a better person to be on the better side of facts than the worst side of fiction.”
Consider yourself told!
Oh, and Happy New Year…
