Living Someone Mean

Do what you do and mean it every second of the day. If you don't, you're living someone else's life.

- Corey Taylor

Love Dig Albums

I don't feel guilty about the music I love. If you feel guilty about something you dig, then you should stop feeling guilty about it. One of my favorite albums to this day is the 10th anniversary ensemble cast of 'Les Miserables,' the ultimate cast recording, and it is still something I love listening to top to bottom.

- Corey Taylor

Lucky Very Another

I am the kind of guy who has never taken myself too seriously. I mean, I am very serious about what I do; I'm very serious about the creative process and everything, but at the end of the day, I am just another lucky geek who got to live out a dream, you know?

- Corey Taylor

Every Day Next Your

I don't mean to be overly sensitive or anything like that, but you just have to take a minute in every day, and just reflect on where you are, and just realise what you've got, because you just never know where the next huge change in your life is going to come from.

- Corey Taylor

Hands Notes Plaything

I have ideas every day, and if I'm not carrying a pad of paper, I'm typing it into the notes thing on my iPhone, and it's just ridiculous - idle hands are the devil's plaything, and I can't be the devil's plaything. I got to be the devil; I got to be the guy making it all happen.

- Corey Taylor

Bus Movie Bootleg

'The Blair Witch Project' is great for motion sickness. The first time you see it, it is extremely creepy. The first time I saw it, I saw it on a bootleg tape on a tour bus before it had even come out. It was one of the first movies I'd seen like that. I didn't even realize it was a damn movie!

- Corey Taylor

Metal Pulled Riffs

My biggest influences were 1980s punk and metal. Metallica were my biggest influence because they were good at everything - riffs, energy - but with such an ear for melody, it was hard not to get pulled into it and become a fanatic.

- Corey Taylor

Voice Why About

People can talk about punk all they want, but after new wave put that down, metal is the voice of the disenfranchised and that need to become unhinged. That's why it appeals to so many people when they are younger and carries over when those people, at 40, don't want to grow up.

- Corey Taylor

Strength Turn Rather

So many people in the world would rather stay in a situation that's painful but familiar because they're comfortable with it. Not a lot of people have the strength or heart to realize when something's not good for them and to turn around and be alone.

- Corey Taylor

Light Chaos Darkness

Slipknot is the darkness; Stone Sour is the light. Slipknot is chaos; Stone Sour is structure.

- Corey Taylor

Mistakes Learn Forever

Mistakes you can learn from; sins stay with you forever.

- Corey Taylor

Cleaning Doing Dancing

There's times when I'm cleaning the kitchen, and while I'm doing that, I'm singing and air guitaring with a broom to 'You Should Be Dancing.'

- Corey Taylor

Studio Point I Think

I think people are tired of fake music, man. And there's a lot of it. Technology has reached the point where any boob can walk into a studio and with a little AutoTuning you can have a hit song. I think it's pathetic.

- Corey Taylor

Love Cut Connotation

I have several books I can read over and over. With fiction, it's 'The Stand' by Stephen King, which is my favorite all time. I read that at least once a year, the version which has 100,000 extra words, which is like the director's cut and unabridged. I love the story. I love the social connotation to it.

- Corey Taylor

Know Metal Some

Some of the smartest people I know are metal fans.

- Corey Taylor

Lucky Other Couple

You gotta remember: we're musicians... we're just crazy people who can't get along sometimes. I've definitely come to the table with my knife in my pocket a couple of times; you know how it is. It's part of being human. Now add fame and money and all that rock and roll craziness to it - we're lucky we don't eat each other in this industry!

- Corey Taylor

Doing Over Same Thing

You don't break ground by doing the same thing over and over and over. That's like standing in place. You have to risk to gain it all.

- Corey Taylor

Understand Go Like

Too many people chase dreams that they don't understand. Too many people try to go for things that they'd like to do, but they're not realistic enough to know they don't have the talent.

- Corey Taylor

Me My Own Own

Nobody can dare me to do anything that I don't come up with on my own.

- Corey Taylor

Book Seven Been

With 'Seven Deadly Sins,' there was a lot of personal stuff in there that I didn't even realize I'd been carrying around for awhile. And a lot of guilt involved, a lot of emotion, a lot of depression. Once I was done writing that book, I was able to really let go of that stuff.
