Slipknot lineup 2014

On October 2nd, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor made an appearance with radio host Corey Taylor (a female of no relation) of www.coreytaylortalks.com.

During their chat, Taylor admitted that he was "so upset" when fans figured out the identity of bassist Alessandro "Vman" Venturella via his hand tattoos, though Taylor was careful not to actually confirm Venturella's identity. Here's what Taylor had to say about the band's new bassist and drummer (rumored to be Jay Weinberg):

"They're not official bandmembers yet, but they are people who play with the band. Time will tell whether or not they're, like, full members."

"With this band, you earn everything. You're not just given that shot; you have to earn it. And so far, they're doing really well. And we're really enjoying jamming with them. But we're keeping it kind of on the DL, but not really, 'cause somebody already pointed out the tattoos. I was, like, 'Why didn't we make him wear gloves?' I was so upset. I was, like, we thought of all this stuff. We put the hood on him and then the mask, and it was, like, 'It's really hot, guys,' And then there is his tattoos for everybody [to see]. I was, like, 'Well, we missed the mark on that one.'"

^You all seem like pretty fun people to be around, really. Trolling isn't funny unless you're 12, and if some are you serious, why bother taking the time to write that if you don't care? Metal fans are so bitchy.

On the D Lo, I'm sayin you versus me, though
We can do this shit right here in front of your people

Funny everyone wants to talk shit, but wont promote their shitty fcking band. All you asses are just fcking jealous. Go suck one and then make a comment.

Why do metal fans have to such self richeous opinionated douches? Every negative comment made he was made by someone who grew up listening to Slipknot.I guess being an internet tough guy is pretty easy though.

in case you guys didn't know, trolling shitty metal music is what makes lambgoat great
