Getting To Know… James Root

Posted on February 12, 2008

Earlier this week, we introduced our new (wo)men behind the music concept and presented Gettting To Know… Joel Ekman, Stone Sour’s drummer. Now it’s time to learn a little more about Jim, Stone Sour (& Slipknot) guitarist. Date of birth? Jim: “April 1st, 1793” Favourite tour story? Jim: “What goes on the road, stays on the road. Haha. No, actually I really don’t have one.” Five words that describe you? “Not interested in these questions!!!” [Jim smirks] One album that you think everyone should own? Jim:“Ok Computer, by Radiohead.” Which famous person (dead or alive) would you invite over for dinner and why them? Jim: “Hmm. Is my girlfriend gonna see this? Haha. Um, lemme think. Corey, who’s that South African actress?” Corey [without hesitation]: “Charlize Theron.” Jim: “Yeah that’s it. Charlize Theron. You need to ask why??” Best piece of advice you’ve been given? Jim: “You know, I don’t think I’ve ever really been given any. People just don’t give me it. They usually come to me! So I guess none, I usually give them it!” If i wasn’t in this band I would be… Jim: “Better off!” [Jim cackles] Jim: “Or in another band… with the same people…” [Jim cackles harder] Tomorrow, we put Shawn under the spotlight… Stone Sour play a sold out show at the London Astoria tonight.
