Stone Sour's Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor Says Nickelback Members Apologized For Chad Kroeger’s Comments


Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has revealed that members of Nickelback have apologized to him for their frontman Chad Kroeger‘s negative comments. In an interview conducted this past June, Kroeger slammed Stone Sour as being “Nickelback lite”, while also accusing Slipknot of relying on a gimmick.

Kroeger mentioned in the interview that his comments were spurred by Taylor previously saying “nasty things” about him in the press. Kroeger‘s comments of course led to a an ongoing feud. Speaking recently with 93.3 WMMR, Taylor commented:

“That just tells you the level of ego you’re dealing with. And I’ve said this since day one—it’s not the [rest of his] band. Because the [other guys in the] band turned around… As soon as that story hit, the band called and apologized. They were, like, ‘It’s not us. We promise. It’s this guy. We don’t…’ And I had hung out with the band before, and they’re super-cool dudes. So I was, like… Well, I figured it wasn’t them. So I don’t want people holding it against the band, because it’s not them. It’s Captain Ego from Planet Douche.”
