Corey Taylor Records With Dave Grohl

Corey Taylor has revealed that he has recorded a song with Dave Grohl and Butch Vig. The unusual collaboration was announced on his Twitter, seen below, where Corey expressed his awe at working with two of the biggest names in rock. There were no further clues in the tweet regarding what the project is for. Given that the Foo Fighters frontman recently recorded with members of 1980s metal band Ratt, NME theorise that the track will go towards a collaborative Grohl album. This doesn't mean Foo Fighters will be hanging up their boots in the interim. As previously reported, the band will be writing their followup to "Wasting Light" during 2012, leaving fans to speculate that it could be recorded before the year is out. Taylor points out that working with the "Nevermind" producer and drummer lets him tick off two of his many life goals. Blabbermouth highlight a 2006 quote where Taylor sung Grohl's praises: "I probably identify the most with people like Dave Grohl, who is such a cool dude, so down to earth and probably one of the funniest cats on the planet," he said. "He's just so approachable and yet has done so much. I really, really dig that." Foo Fighters are in with a firm chance of winning a set of Grammy awards after receiving six nominations for "Wasting Light". The 54th annual ceremony will take place on February 12 in Los Angeles.

    If this article features Corey Taylor, Dave Grohl and Butch Vig then why did UG put on a picture of Seth Green?

    I like Corey and love the Foos, so will be definitely checking this out. But is Corey Taylor's twitter name really "Corey ****in Taylor"?

    It could be SourFoo, but then people might confuse it for some kind of Chinese food.

    As little as I like Corey Taylor, my love for Dave Grohl will probably lead to me checking this out...

    "I probably identify the most with people like Dave Grohl, who is such a cool dude, so down to earth and probably one of the funniest cats on the planet," he said.
    Dude, get off your own d**k. Narcissism much?

    I will check this out. Grohl is well....Grohl. No more needs to be said about that. I enjoy Corey's vocals, but for me it depends on the track. If he does anything like he did on Stone Sour's debut, I'll like this collaboration

    Corey Taylor is a god. He can scream and sing. Dave Grohl is a god. He makes rock alive and proves tht rock isnt dead. Haters fck off. lets see u do better than them.

    I think Corey is an equally good lyricist as Grohl. And he's a decent guitar player and song writer. I agree that Grohl overall is a better musician, though.

    This could be wonderful. Corey is a hell of a singer, so is Grohl, it all comes down to the songwriting.

    I've never been a big fan of Slipknot, but I'll give credit to anyone who recognizes the awesome-ness that is Grohl. Maybe it's due to the context of this article, but I guess I do sort of like Corey Taylor's singing. Not so much the screaming type stuff, but his clean voice is pretty nice. I'm excited to hear this.

    You know, he wasn't comparing his work to "The Wall" as if it will be as great of a piece of work. He was saying that he's drawing inspiration from that album. There's a big difference and I hate when people don't get that. Just people say "it's going to be like" when they mention a famous album in comparison to their work, it doesn't mean that they're comparing in quality, just stylistically. Or at least they should be if they're any sensible musician. Corey Taylor may be a bit of a dickhole sometimes, but I will admit that he seems like a very reasonable man. I don't get why anyone gives him as much shit as they do.

    And to everyone who feels the need to talk shit about Corey Taylor, name one mistake of his career. That's a challenge. I'm no CT fanboy. There's some Slipknot songs I like and dislike. Same with Stone Sour. I don't think every one of Dave Grohl's songs are pure gold either. But seriously, if you're having to twist words, take things out of context, or can't even state a good reason in your comment, then just shut up. You're comment is more meaningless then your own hateful self. That being said... He does kinda look like Seth Green in that pic. lol.

    I bet one of those goals on the bucket list is to be in Velvet Revolver. So close, Corey.

    Isn't Dave Grohl making some documentary about the Sound City recording studio? IOWA was recorded there, maybe this has something to do with that...

    Holy shit. Looking forward to this, which is probably going to be named Sour Fighters.

    But that way he feels it rise up in him, he'll kneel down and clear the stone of leaves, he'll wander out where you can't see inside himself he waits and bleeds.

    Haha, I'm amazed no one's suggested "Stone Fighters" yet, it actually sounds like a band name.

    Brother, that's really digging deep for a reason. There's a reason my post has 21 likes. Is saying you "identify" with cool people conceited? No. It's simply saying that he and Dave probably had a good chemistry as far as their personalities go. And i could see it. I'm not ripping into you personally. I just have a problem with people hating for a stupid reason when really they are hating just because someone told them to or are just plain jealous.

    I can say this about Corey... I met him, and he was very humble, and super nice dude. Ive met lots of people in bigger bands, and most of them were super nice. Ive met probably like 2 guys that I thought were complete a-holes... Matt Heafey and Randy Blythe (although he is an amazing vocalist...Randy I mean). Im at least glad he doesnt act like a douche to his fans.

    I can't believe that I'm saying this but ultimate-guitar.com has become blabbermouth.net 2.0. So much haters on every article.....
