Corey about Jim Root & Stone Sour
Corey Taylor says Stone Sour's split with Jim Root was the right thing for the band - and for Slipknot. The frontman feels that dismissing the guitarist was the best way to ensure a future for both bands, even though it's led to some "awkward" moments as the pair worked on Slipknot's album .5: The Gray Chapter.

Root was fired from Stone Sour last year, although the move wasn't made public for several months. He recently told TeamRock that, while he'd been surprised, the band had become like a "sinking ship."

Now Taylor tells Loaded Radio: "With all due respect to Jim, I just want him to be happy - and for the longest time it seemed like he wasn't. It made sense to do what we had to do to make sure that both bands could still exist."
