Slipknot will continue without vocalist Corey Taylor if he chooses to quit the band, according to drummer Joey Jordison. In recent interviews, Taylor has been open about his concerns about carrying on with the band following bassist Paul Gray’s 2010 death. Joey Jordison promises that Slipknot will record new material and tour again.

“As far as I’m concerned, Slipknot’s my baby and I have a bunch of songs written,” Jordison said in an interview with Artisan News. “And I’m in rehearsal right now with all the guys and it’s completely on fire.”

Gray’s replacement, Donnie Steele, will make his debut with Slipknot on several upcoming European festival dates, which they committed to before Gray’s fatal drug overdose.

Taylor also recently dismissed reports that he would be Scott Weiland’s replacement in Velvet Revolver. However, Taylor says he did audition for the supergroup that also features former Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum, in 2010. “It wasn’t on the cards, and that’s cool,” Taylor recently told “I made some great friends. It was just cool to kind of get together with them and jam, man. But it’s all good.”

Slipknot’s most recent album, 2008’s ‘All Hope is Gone,’ was their first release to premiere at the top of the Billboard 200 album charts and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies in the US alone.
