Slipknot/Stone Sour Guitarist Jim Root Pondering Electronica Project With Limp Bizkit Bassist Sam Rivers
Slipknot/Stone Sour guitarist Jim Root is pondering a possible electronica-oriented side project with Limp Bizkit bassist Sam Rivers. Root recently spoke with Backstageaxxess.com about the tentative project, stating:
“I live down in Florida now, and you know Sam from Limp Bizkit lives down there. I ran into him the other day. He came over to my house. He’s got a studio in his house and he’s been writing a lot of like weird kind of electronica kind of music that’s you know kinda aerial and spacey and all that stuff, it was really cool.
It had kind of a weird kind of Portishead vibe to it and I love that band, so I think I might… I mean why not. I don’t have enough projects going on, why not add another one.”
The portion regarding the potential side project starts at 8:23 in. He also mentioned that Stone Sour hope to be in the studio for their new album by March.
