Inspired by Lincoln, and It's Been How Long?

Inspired by Lincoln


The Great Emancipator--Abraham Lincoln
The Great Emancipator--Abraham Lincoln

So what inspired the forthcoming Stone Sour concept albums House of Gold and Bones? Would you be surprised if I told you it was Springfield’s main man Abraham Lincoln that lit that fire? Front man Corey Taylor says that he came up with the title of the concept album after reading a Lincoln biography titled Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln. In a Fuse TV interview, Taylor says the passage in the book that sparked his interest “was from a letter describing Lincoln's balance between melancholy and positivity. They described him as being made of gold and bones,” and Taylor really liked that, he thought it was a brilliant visual.


If you’re from the Springfield area, and you’re sick of hearing about Abraham Lincoln, you may want to rethink your stance, because rockers all over love the Great Emancipator! Even punk rock legend Henry Rollins was in town a few weeks ago. He toured the Lincoln Library and Museum for three-and-a-half hours (video link) before performing his spoken word. Maybe we can convince Corey Taylor to visit Springfield just to hit up the library and museum … he may as well bring Stone Sour with him to perform when he hits up the Land of Lincoln, right? House of Gold and Bones Part 1 comes drops in stores everywhere tomorrow.


It's been how long?
