This Is The Closest You’re Getting To A STONE SOUR Reunion Right Now

Must read

A Stone Sour reunion isn’t happening anytime soon, but we got close-ish last week. Stone Sour drummer Roy Mayorga joined Corey Taylor on stage at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA on October 5 to play “Absolute Zero” and “30/30-150”, which you can check out above and below.

Taylor stated in a 2022 interview with Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk that he’s much happier playing with his solo band and Slipknot, and that Stone Sour still has some unresolved issues.

“To me, I’ve done the time doing stuff in a — for lack of a better term — band situation. And the reason I stick with Slipknot is because that, to me, is the one that kind of started everything. But Stone Sour, there’s still so much drama and issues [between the members]. To me, it’s just not something I desire to do. And songs in Stone Sour that I want to play are the ones that I wrote in the first place.

“So to me, I would rather go out with a group of dudes who I’ve known forever and have a great time playing these songs and have the audience enjoy it because they see a bunch of dudes up there enjoying it than try to force issues on an audience that nobody really wants to be a part of, let’s put it that way.”

Taylor later clarified in a 2023 interview with Rock Antenne: “It’s not that I don’t miss some of the guys in Stone Sour; I still talk to them. But at this stage, I refuse to compromise my vision and my art because of certain people’s hindrances. And that’s all I’ll say.”
