In this weeks edition of Kerrang! Magazine, SLIPKNOT’S Corey Taylor talks openly of his apprehension ahead of this summer’s Slipknot shows- the band’s first since bassist Paul Gray passed away last May.
“I’m scared to death,” he tells Kerrang!. “I’m nowhere near prepared for the emotion that’s going to happen. That first show [in Athens, Greece on June 17] is really going to be the test. That tour for the most part is going to be a test. It’s very hard, man… It’s still reverberating through my life… We’re coming up to the year anniversary of his death, and I still can’t fucking handle it.”
