The 'Knot is okay
Corey Taylor wants you to know that Slipknot are not falling apart. That’s the word from the front man as fans worry about the future of the band given longtime drummer Joey Jordison parting ways. Taking to Twitter, Taylor said that if you think “The Knot” are falling apart, “you are greatly and sadly mistaken.” Taylor even has a New Year’s resolution saying “Bring On 2014. Great Things Are Coming. Stay Tuned …” Earlier this month the band announced that Jordison will no longer be with the band. The band has been teasing that they will come together to release the first album since 2008’s All Hope is Gone. It would also be the first album from the band since the death of bassist Paul Gray back in 2010.
There could be a Hole reunion in 2014. Front woman Courtney Love posted a blurry pic of herself hugging Eric Erlandson, the band then guitarist. In a message posted with the pic, Love hints that she may be working with him and some other former members of the band next year. Then band released an album in 2010, but before that it was 1998 before they released anything. Follow Ms. Love on Twitter to stay up to date with those developments, and to stay up to date with her craziness!
Travis Barker is taking to the printing press for therapy. The Blink 182 drummer has had a roller coaster of a career drumming for the very successful and popular punk band and also about dying in a plane accident. The new memoir will document that and many more things. Expect that in the Fall of next year.
