Slipknot's Corey Taylor Keen On Justin Bieber Collaboration
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has revealed he is keen to record a collaboration with Justin Bieber. The idea for the unlikely collaboration comes off the back of a viral YouTube mash-up which saw one fan put Slipknot's 'Psychosocial' together with Justin Bieber's hit single 'Baby' (scroll down to watch it). The 'Psychosocial Baby' video has racked up over 12m hits since it was uploaded in 2011. Speaking to Revolver about the mash-up and his hopes for a collaboration with Bieber, Corey Taylor said: "I know Justin wasn't responsible for it, but I just thought it was so cool. Everybody thought I'd be pissed about it, but I was blown away... I give him respect. He's a very talented kid and he goes above and beyond for his fans. I was in Baltimore on my book tour and Justin was nearby in Washington, DC. I tried to get him down to my reading because I wanted to try to do an acoustic version of Psychosocial Baby together. But he was actually visiting children's hospitals. You can't say anything bad about a guy who's visiting children's hospitals." Slipknot recently hit the headlines when it was confirmed that they will headline Download Festival in 2013. The band will be joined on the bill by fellow headliners Rammstein and Iron Maiden as well as Queens Of The Stone Age, Alice In Chains and 30 Seconds To Mars. The masked metal band will headline the festival on June 14 and join Rammstein and Iron Maiden in topping the bill. Speaking about the booking which will be their second headline slot at the festival after their performance in 2009 the band's Clown said (via NME): "We are extremely honoured to have been asked once again to headline the Download Festival. This most definitely will be an experience not to be missed. Every time we've played Download we have created memories." "It's always good to have the church of the Knot, the altar of the Knot, giving the sermon of the Knot to the congregation of the Knot, the culture of the Knot. This summer cannot come soon enough. Partake in the imagination or don't bitch." Meanwhile, Justin Bieber was among the winners at last night's American Music Awards (Nov 18).
