Stone Sour Quotes
I left Stone Sour in '97 because, by that time, we'd been together for about five years and I was kind of getting to the point where I wanted to do something different. I loved the music that we did and I loved the guys that I was with, but I was 24 and just felt like I needed to go and try something different so I didn't get stuck where I was, you know, just doing the same thing. And, coincidentally, that's when Slipknot came and asked me to join. I'd never done anything like Slipknot up until then, so I was like, "Okay, we'll try this and we'll see what happens." And it worked out.
But I always kind of knew in the back of my head that I could come back and do Stone Sour.
It helps me work it out, because if you look at it from a Slipknot point of view, it's like, "How could you go from being so brutal to singing very melodically?" I mean, it's the same thing. When it's time to go back to Slipknot, it will be time to go back to Slipknot. It will be time to get in that mindset again. And then when Slipknot's done doing that, I will go back to Stone Sour and I'll just flip-flop it. It'll be very easy, because it's all me, the singing anyway. It's what I do. It's what I love. It's two different bands at the end of the day.
I'm not as hands-on with the music in Slipknot. I usually concentrate on the lyrics, but on this album, I've been writing a lot more music.....With Stone Sour, not all of it is written on acoustic. Sometimes I'll write an entire song. I'll bring it to the guys in Stone Sour and it will be completely kind of reworked and taken in a whole different direction that I never even saw.
Without Slipknot we wouldn't have the success we are having now out of the gate.
