Corey Taylor: Joey Jordison Writing All Slipknot Music Is 'a Myth'
Corey Taylor has been speaking to Rock Revolt Magazine (via Blabbermouth) about Slipknot's future, and how drummer Joey Jordison's departure has affected the band's writing process.

As Taylor notes, while some believed that Jordison was Slipknot's creative lynchpin, he feels that the rest of the band have something to bring to the table. "I know there's this myth out there that Joey wrote everything, but that's not at all true. We all write, and we all bring something to the table. And between me and Jim [Root, guitar] and Mick [Thomson, guitar] and Clown [Shawn Crahan, percussion] and everybody [else], I think we're gonna be able to put something really, really cool together. The dynamic will change a little bit, but as far as our approach to the music and our intensity and how much we love doing what we do, that will remain unchanged, and we're gonna go for it just 110 percent."

The singer also noted that Slipknot has "a few" people lined up to take the vacant drummer position: "As soon as we know [who is going to be the new Slipknot drummer], the fans will know. And that's how we're keeping it. We're keeping everything really close to the chest right now. I mean, it's out of respect for Joe, and for us. And there's just a host of legal things that we still need to sort out."

"It's hard - it's really hard - but the only other [option] was shutting the band down, and none of us wanted to do that. So we're gonna push on."
