Corey Taylor Slams Scott Weiland Christmas Album [VIDEO]
Corey Taylor continues his pull-no-punches approach to the Q&A portion of his solo shows. At Monday's gig the Slipknot vocalist called Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland "a lazy piece of s---" and ridiculed his recently released Christmas album.
Just a few shows after he verbally assassinated mega-producer Rick Rubin for being "overrated," "overpaid," and "lazy," the outspoken Corey Taylor began disassembling Scott Weiland without even being prompted by the audience. Taylor started talking about commercials and movie remakes and eventually began warning the audience to be cautious of those looking to cash in on their curiosity and give them nothing in return. His first example ended up being the man whose old job (as Velvet Revolver's vocalist) he recently auditioned for:
"I’ll give you another example. Does anyone know who Scott Weiland is? Do you know that Scott Weiland has a Christmas album now? Oh, it’s bad. It’s bad. Let me f—ing explain to you how bad it is. There is a video online of him singing, and he’s very serious. 'Cause Christmas is serious. His hair is all slicked back and he’s in his f---ing s–-ty tuxedo."
Taylor began his lifeless impression of Weiland's take on 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' which ended with him attempting to swallow the microphone mid-lyric. He then further explained his beef with Weiland:
"So, I’m watching this — painfully watching this, because hey, know your enemy — and I’m just like, ‘Why?’ It’s not that he’s a bad singer, ’cause he’s not. I love STP, I love some of the s–t that he did with Velvet Revolver. It’s not that he’s a bad f—ing singer. He’s a lazy piece of s–t, is what he is at this point."
Scott Weiland's 'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year' is now available at stores and digital outlets, as is Corey Taylor's Christmas song titled 'X-M@$.
