Midnight Metal

Friday 12:00 a.m. Midnight

Corey Taylor shared a story so gross in a recent interview that once you hear it, you’ll want to share it with others, because you can’t be the only one that knows about this.

Speaking with Classic Rock, Taylor touched on meeting “Dimebag” Darrell and Vinnie Paul Abbott for the first time when Slipknot did a show in Dallas in 1999. The singer said after the show, the band and the Abbotts ended up at the Clubhouse, which was a gentlemen’s club they co-owned. Everyone proceeds to get absolutely hammered.

Taylor says Dime loved pulling pranks on people. However, the guitarist clearly met his match with Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan.

“They had one of their cooks hollow out a tomato and fill it with these insanely fiery red chili peppers,” said Taylor. “Dime pulls out this tomato stuffed with this stupid knot of chilis and he goes, ‘How much is it gonna cost to get all this down?’ And Clown goes, ‘I don’t need your money,’ and just grabs it and starts eating it like an apple.”

Then things take a turn.

Taylor, Clown and Dime are in the bathroom relieving themselves, because they’ve been drinking like the world was ending. They notice a piece of gum on a urinal cake.

“Dime looks over and goes, ‘Alright, Clown, how much would it take…’ Before he can finish, Clown reaches down, grabs it and starts chewing,” said Taylor. “It was so f*cking gross … Dime just threw his hands up. He talked about it until the day he died: ‘Clown, he was the one motherf*cker I couldn’t get to collapse, he just f*cked me up.'”

In turn, if this story didn’t f*ck you up, we’re impressed and also frightened at the things you’ve done and seen in your life.

On a far less repulsive note: Taylor releases his new solo album, CMF2, on September 15. The LP is available for pre-order and pre-save here. Taylor is also hitting the road for a U.S. tour in support of CMF2 beginning on August 25 in Denver and wrapping on October 7 with a set at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif.
