Slipknot Guitarist Jim Root Already Writing For Next Album


0

Slipknot guitarist Jim Root is already looking to the bands next album, telling the The Des Moines Register:

“We haven’t been able to do two albums back to back since our first one and ‘Iowa‘. We’re at a point in our career where the band is on top of its game. If we take two years or however long away, who knows if we could come back? Someone might decide they want to direct or write or other bands’ projects might take priority. I plan for the best and expect the worst. I started writing again today. Hopefully the songs will be on a new Slipknot record. If not, I’ll find something else to do with them.”

Root also spoke of being fired from Stone Sour (he was replaced by Christian Martucci):

“When you’re sort of blindsided by something like that, it kind of makes you wonder what the motivations or intentions are, or why it has to be like that, when really all that needs to happen is a Slipknot record, then we could go back to business as usual later.

For whatever reason, it happened and it sort of lit a fire under my ass to realize that it doesn’t really matter who you are or what your role is in any particular thing that you do. You always have to be on top of your game, because you never know what is going to happen. It definitely made me want to put my nose to the grindstone and hone my skills a little more. When something like that happens, it’s like getting dumped.”
