According to Blabbermouth.net
and Stone Sour
singer Corey Taylor
has slammed Scott Weiland
as a "lazy piece of sh-t
" following the Stone Temple Pilots
frontman's decision to record and release "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
", an album of holiday standards.
During the spoken-word segment at Corey's November 28, 2011 "An Evening With Corey Taylor" solo appearance at Radio Radio in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Slipknot vocalist expressed his disdain over the lack of imagination in modern art, particularly a it relates to movie sequels and remakes.
"Tonight's topic, if you haven't figured it out, is sloth,
" Corey said. "Because these motherf-ckers would rather just 'cha-ching' than actually use their f-cking brains to give us anything good these f-cking days.' He added, "More and more people are only interested in money than f-cking doing anything that's good. I'm not saying everyone, but there's a lot of f-cking people out there who would rather just take your money and leave you with nothing. I'll give you another example. Does anyone know who Scott Weiland is? Do you know that Scott Weiland has a Christmas album now? [Laughs] Oh, it's bad. It's bad. Let me f-cking 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 sh-tty tuxedo. He goes [imitates Weiland's singing]. 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 sh-t that he did with Velvet Revolver. It's not that he's a bad f-cking singer. He's a lazy piece of sh-t, is what he is at this point. 'I'm gonna get up here' [imitates Weiland singing and makes snoring sound].
"It's all these people who would rather cash in on the little f-cking notoriety that they have and take your money and give you nothing back. And that, to me, is the real the real sloth in this country. Because I don't know about you, [but] I work really hard for my money I work very f-cking hard for my money and when I actually spend money on something, I expect it not to suck. Is that too much to f-cking ask for anymore, man?
In a recent interview with The Sudbury Star, Weiland stated about his decision to record a Christmas album, "Um, well, why not?
" He continued, "Well, you know what, man? People don't know me. They know what someone's opinion is. And they know my songs. But they really don't know me. Christmas, ever since I was a kid, was a big thing. It still is a big thing.
"My memories of Christmas are very joyful,
" he added. "It was a special time. I remember we would wake up in the morning, and my father would put on the record player and play old albums. He would usually start out with orchestral versions of classics and chorals. Listening to those songs is something I always remember.
