COREY TAYLOR Doesn't Need The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame To Validate Him

He has bigger fish to fry.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a controversial institution, drawing accolades and praise from some musicians like Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello or drawing ire and indifference from others, like Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor, who just announced his new solo record, CMF2, yesterday.

Speaking with Audacity Check In, Taylor was asked which of his projects he would most like to be considered for the Hall of Fame. His response? He doesn't care.

“At this point, who gives a sh*t really, to be honest," Taylor said. "It’s hard for me to say that they get it wrong because sometimes the people they induct 100% deserve it. But there’s still so many groups that should go in before some of the ones that have. And it really upsets me, dude, so at this point it’s like, I don’t even know if I’ll be considered for something like that and I couldn’t care less, to be honest. To me, that’s a high-five at the end of your career, ya know. I would rather have that later on. It’s just something I don’t really concern myself with. Would I be a stingy hog and want to be like the late, great David Crosby and be in there like four times? That would be great – if I could be in there for all three acts, that’d be killer. But, I don’t think I’m gonna even get in for one. So it’s fine. I’ve got better things to do.”

He also discussed CMF2 and how it varies from CMFT, his first solo outing.

"[CMFT] felt more like where we were coming from than where we, in this album, it kind of feels like where we're going," Taylor explained. "On this album [CMF2], we just decided to up the stakes. The music is more expansive, there's heavier stuff, there's darker stuff. It still kind of paints with the whole palette like the first album does, but there's just a little more there, man. You know, to me, it's the best rock album of this year and next year. I mean, it's that good."
