Corey Taylor Blames Someone Else For Stone Sour’s Hiatus

In a recent interview with Australia’s, Corey Taylor revealed that Stone Sour is currently on an indefinite hiatus due to “irreconcilable differences with certain people.” Taylor expressed that he can no longer compromise and wants to focus on his solo project, where he can explore different genres without limitations.

“We call it indefinite hiatus. It’s one of those,” he said. “I talk to Tooch [Christian Martucci, guitarist for Stone Sour and Taylor‘s solo band] about this all the time. It’s just one of those things where you just don’t see it coming back anytime soon. They’re just kind of irreconcilable differences with certain people, and a lot of things that…

“Obviously, I don’t wanna… I’m not gonna run anybody down or anything, but it’s just one of those things that for me I can’t compromise anymore for different reasons. If I’m gonna do music, I wanna do it full-tilt. It’s the best thing for me to be able to do [my solo project]. And Stone Sour is what I did. And I’m proud of it. I’m proud of what we did.”

Corey has recently highlighted his significant role within Stone Sour, emphasizing that his guitar abilities surpass those of many previous lead guitarists who have played with the band.

“With Sour, I was, nine times out of ten, always better than the guitar player we had in the band, as a lead player. So I said, ‘F**k it, I’ll just handle it. I’m writing all the music anyway, I might as well be the guy who’s leading the charge.’ And then, we’ll just get a good rhythm guitar player kind of go with [it]. I’d say that was the genesis of my really diving headfirst down, just jumping off the cliff and praying to God the parachute goes off.”
