To mark the announcement of SLIPKNOT‘s “Summer’s Last Stand Tour” with LAMB OF GOD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, thousands of fans posted great questions for SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor to answer. You can now watch the question-and-answer session below.

Asked how he and KORN singer Jonathan Davis came up with the idea of covering the BEASTIE BOYS song “Sabotage” at the two bands’ January 23 concert at The SSE Arena in London, England during their joint U.K. tour, Taylor responded: “Well, me and Jonathan did not come up with that idea, actually. That was [KORN bassist] Fieldy‘s idea. We had been kinda joking about doing something together at one of the shows, and Fieldy was, like, ‘Why don’t we just do ‘Sabotage’?’ We all kinda dug it, we got together, we jammed it out, and the rest is history. So, good on you, Field.”

Prior to the London concert, a posting on KORN‘s Instagram account hinted that the two bands were “maybe doing a cover tonight in London” with a photo of the musicians performing together in soundcheck. KORN later announced on Twitter that a video of the entire “Sabotage” performance would be made available at some point in the future. They also released “a little teaser” of the collaboration, featuring footage shot with a GoPro camera that hovered over the band and the crowd.

In an October 2014 interview with the “Metal Hammer Radio Show”, SLIPKNOT singer Corey Taylor stated about touring with KORN: “Not only were they the band that we loved, but we also aspired to what they had. It wasn’t until a handful of years later that we actually got to meet them and we got to know them, we got to be very close with them, to the point where now it’s very weird to think that [KORN frontman] Jonathan Davis has me on a first-name basis. It’s crazy when the bands you look up to become your peers; that’s a pretty big statement to what you’ve done, especially with that band, because I have so much respect for what they’ve been able to do and what they’ve accomplished, and just how far they’ve been able to push their music. I mean, it’s fantastic. This is something that we’ve been trying to put together for a very, very long time. Just putting together a tour with them and finally, finally we get to do it and it just felt like the right time. They were available, we were ready to do it and the rest is going to be history.”

Davis was similarly excited about sharing the stage with SLIPKNOT, telling a radio station in Philadelphia: “We’ve been longtime friends with the SLIPKNOT guys, so we’re really excited to be doing this tour… We’ve done stuff together… We had Corey come out and sing ‘Freak On A Leash’ one time live, and then when I got sick back in Europe in ’06, he covered for me on a show and sang a couple songs, because I was in the hospital and couldn’t perform.”

SLIPKNOT‘s first major U.S. headlining tour in support of its new album, “.5: The Gray Chapter”, dubbed “Prepare For Hell”, also featured KORN and KING 810.

The trek kicked off on October 29, 2014 in El Paso, Texas and wrapped up on December 7, 2014 in Boston.

“.5: The Gray Chapter” sold around 132,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 21, 2014 via Roadrunner.

Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has denied ever being in talks with STRYPER frontman Michael Sweet about Sweet producing a Bach solo album.

During Sweet‘s appearance on the January 19 edition of Eddie Trunk‘s SiriusXM satellite radio show, “Eddie Trunk Live”, Michael was asked if there was any truth to reports that he was supposed to be collaborating with Bach on some new music. Michael responded: “I don’t wanna throw him under the bus or make him feel awkward or weird. I was approached to do a Sebastian album… to produce it and to co-write with him and basically try to kind of go back to those powerful songs from the past. Not make a dated record, but just that style, the anthemy SKID ROW stuff that everybody loves. And that was the plan.”

He continued: “Management got involved, and Sebastian and I e-mailed each other back and forth. It was going down the track a little ways and all of a sudden it came to a screeching halt. He decided he wanted to do an acoustic album, or wanted to do this, or wanted to do that. And I was just, like, ‘Guys, let me know what’s going on, if it’s going on.’ And I never really heard any more about it, so I guess it’s not happening. But it would have been cool.”

Sweet added: “I’ll tell you right now, I think I could have helped Sebastian make a killer album. But hey… We’ll never know.”

Michael also offered a theory as to why so few of Bach‘s 800,000 Facebook followers purchased the former SKID ROW singer’s latest solo album, “Give ‘Em Hell”, when it was first released. Sweet told Trunk: “This isn’t a bash against Sebastian at all; it’s just my opinion. I think people wanna hear Sebastian of old. They wanna hear the SKID ROW Sebastian. They wanna hear the hits. And he’s giving them modern rock. It’s [‘Give ‘Em Hell’] a good album, it’s a good-sounding album, but it’s not the glory days.”

After a fan wrote on Twitter that “the points M. Sweet made about fans wanting ‘old school’ Bach sounds – are ACCURATE. Not rude or mean. Just true,” Bach responded: “ACCURATE? FACT: No member of STRYPER was EVER asked to produce ANY album by Sebastian Bach! EVER. Who do U think asks that?? Omg!”

Sweet has since taken to his own Twitter to clarify his proposed role in the making of Bach‘s solo album. Michael wrote: “I was asked by the LABEL to produce Sebastian Bach. I never said by Sebastian.”

ACCURATE? @Shawman23 FACT: No member of STRYPER was EVER asked to Produce ANY album by Sebastian Bach! EVER. Who do U think asks that?? Omg!
