Corey Taylor Has No Idea Why DEICIDE's Glen Benton Is Upset With Him

Taylor doesn't get it.

Taylor doesn't get it.

Usually when we post about Corey Taylor, it's updates on Stone Sour or musings about the future of Slipknot, as well as the occasional political comment here and there. Dude's basically the counterbalance to Dave Mustaine, and I don't mean that in a positive or negative say – they're just outspoken guys.

This week, however, it wasn't Taylor who initiated the conversation. It was Deicide's Glen Benton, who got upset with Slipknot for never taking them out on tour. Now, in an interview with, Rock 102.1 KFMA, Taylor responds to Benton with… mainly confusion.

"I haven't seen Glen Benton in ten years, you know, and I haven't talked to him in even longer. So I don't know why he's upset with me, I don't know why he's upset with us. We take out the bands who submit for us, man. It's just that simple. I mean, out of respect to him and what Deicide has done over the years, it's, like… If you talked to somebody, it wasn't me, and they sure as hell didn't talk to me, 'cause I would have tried to do something."

So maybe the two will bury the hatchet and we'll get a Deicide/Slipknot tour, which would totally attract a similar fanbase. Though realistically, I'd absolutely go.
