To celebrate the 10th anniversary of ‘Come What(ever) May’ Stone Sour’s Josh Rand has shared some demos from the making of the album. Josh posted the following words on the bands Facebook page; “In late 2004, after cutting some tracks at Catamount Recording with Joel & Shawn, I decided to build a room in my house to record in. I bought my first Pro Tools rig and the first song I wrote on the new rig was 30/30-150. The drum track was programmed using an Alesis SR-16. I sent it to Corey and when he had a break from touring with Slipknot, he came over & sang on the track. This version is what was given to Jim, Shawn, & Joel.”
