While Slipknot has been still affecting everyone with their music and masks, the iconic band’s singer Corey Taylor recently appeared in an interview, praising the new documentary of The Beatles ‘Get Back’ along with its director and producer Peter Jackson.
Even though The Beatles was disbanded more than four decades ago now, after a ten-year career, their music is still a huge inspiration and joy source for people. Apparently, there is also no doubt that the legendary band has also been touching on other famous artists and their arts, as well, considering its great respect and acclaim by all.
The Beatles ‘Get Back’ consists of three episodes that last nearly eight-hour in total, featuring all the four members of the regarded band — John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr — crafting what was to become their final album, as “Let It Be” was actually recorded before “Abbey Road” but released the latter first. The documentary also includes the band’s epic final performance that took its place on a rooftop in London.
So, as the famous nu-metal band Slipknot has recently released its new song, titled The Chapeltown Rag, its talented singer appeared in an interview, reflecting his thoughts about the legendary band’s new documentary The Beatles Get Back. Corey Taylor also praised the band and the new documentary series of Peter Jackson, calling it “one of the most fascinating things” he has ever seen, as he also discussed the regarded band from different perspectives.
“I watched the first episode and then, obviously, life kind of pulled me away,” he started.
“It is one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever seen. ‘Cause, it challenges everything we thought we knew about them, especially that period. But at the same time, it reinforces what we thought we knew. To me, it’s cool watching their dynamic knowing that they’d been together since they were teenagers in one form or another. They’d been playing together since… I think it was — what? — 1956 when they all started kind of jamming together. And to watch that all kind of unfolds and to see…
Being in a band with people for multiple years, I understand how a dynamic works, so I can watch that with a certain savvy about how that plays out dynamic-wise, emotionally. Knowing that, especially from George‘s point of view, who’s such a great writer, but then you get in a circle, and you’ve got John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it’s, like, where do you fit? So, watching him fight with that and try to kind of find his voice and find out who fits in with that whole thing, it’s fascinating. And knowing how that feels, especially in Slipknot — not so much in Stone Sour, but in Slipknot — I could relate to that in so many different ways. And then watching them get stoked when something would pop. Especially watching Paul figure out ‘Get Back‘ and watching that happen was so cool, dude. Because I’ve done it — I’ve sat there and just twisted on a riff until the melody line comes to mind, and just playing it and exhausting every avenue. If you wanna know how to write a song, there’s your blueprint right there. It’s just that easy.”
On the other side, The Beatles legendary guitarist Paul McCartney recently appeared in an interview, recalling The Beatles and its disbandment days after 4 decades. Reflecting on their breakup, the talented musician talked about how The Beatles ended and more.
Ultimately, Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor also talked about his favorite bands and named them, along with honoring late Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley, during a previous interview of his recently.
