Skid Row Bass Player Records With Stone Sour

Skid Row bass player Rachel Bolan is laying down the bass on the forthcoming album by Stone Sour. In an interview with TheBackstageBeat.com, Bolan said the call from Stone Sour/Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor came out of the blue one morning. "He's like, 'Would you be interested in playing bass on the new Stone Sour record?' So, of course, I said yes, 'cause I'm a huge fan of the band and they're all really, really great guys." Bolan is recording 23 songs for the double-disc concept album, which is the follow-up to 2010's "Audio Secrecy". The band officially split with bass player Shawn Economaki a few months ago, after he left mid-tour in 2011 to tend to personal issues. His replacement at the time was Jason Christopher, who ironically has now joined the touring band of former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach. Corey Taylor recently told Revolver magazine that the album is a morality play about a man who's standing at the crossroads of his life trying to figure out what to do next. "He's going, 'Do I move forward and evolve? Do I become more responsible or do I run backwards and pilfer the basket of youth?' Sometimes it's romantic to live in the mistakes that you made when you were 20, and condemn yourself to perpetual adolescence." Stone Sour's as-yet untitled fourth album is due around October via Roadrunner Records. Thanks for the report to peter Hodgson, Gibson.com.

    I liked Audio Secrecy, it was a solid album. Quite a diverse album. Sorry it was too light for you bR00tAlZ metalheads.

    I don't know if that's supposed to be directed at me, but I'm no metalhead. Hell, I don't even like most metal. The only metal I really like is the stuff that people say isn't metal in today's world because it's not the heaviest thing ever recorded. It wasn't too light for me. It was too shit for me.

    Hopefully, he helps to get them back in good direction. They've had a few moments throughtout their career, but Audio Secrecy was really just awful. But it wasn't anything like hair metal power ballads. It was like Stone Sour's pop music -- not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just that it was shitty pop music.

    he fits considering stonesour's last album sounded like hairmetal loaded with power ballads i used to prefer them before slipknot, until i noticed them heading this route more and more (LAME)

    This could actually turn out pretty interesting I mean Skid Row was actually an amazing band for their time, and rank on my top three for 80's hairmetal with Motley Crue and Guns 'n Roses.
