Out of the blue, Deicide’s frontman Glen Benton attacked Corey Taylor of Slipknot for no reason. Benton attacked Taylor wondering why Taylor never helped Deicide to go on tour with Slipknot. Corey Taylor himself was quick to respond to defend himself and Slipknot. Gotta love how humble Corey is. Instead of attacking Deicide in return, Corey goes on to say that he hasn’t talked with Glen for years and he would have helped Deicide get more exposure if Benton asked but he never did.
Plus, Corey goes on to say that not everybody is gonna like you as a musician.
I loved it when Corey said this: “There are pros and cons with it, and you deal with it the best you can. At the end of the day, not everyone’s gonna like you, and you have to learn that. If you think everyone’s gonna like you, you need to get a helmet, ’cause your life’s gonna be really sad.”
Ya know, Corey is right… not everyone is gonna like you in the music world. When I first started to play my music publicly in the local music scene… I got attacked, bullied and I’ve been made fun of by other musicians in the scene. I couldn’t figure out why that happened but over the years I’ve learned that not everyone is gonna like you and you can’t please everyone, ya know?
I love Corey’s response to that as that man is a class act and that was a professional response too. You got to deal with a lot of egos and jealousy.
I’ve had big public feuds with other musicians and bands myself which should be nameless. I’m sure there are plenty of musicians who still hate me but I don’t let them get to me anymore. I just ignore them and just continue to play my music. That’s the way to be. Only care about your music and not worry about what people think of you.
I’m a huge fan of Slipknot, btw. They’re one of my favorite bands. Love all their records but I think “The Gray Chapter” was the best record in their career.
