In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor spoke of his appreciation for Manson, eventually sharing a pretty disgusting story. When the band last toured together, on Ozzfest 2001, the two metal men had a "gross out" contest. It got ugly.
Taylor told the publication:
"I was pretty lit, pretty much for that whole tour. I do remember throwing up in a cup and drinking it in front of Manson and he kind of freaked out. He didn't really know how to take it. And then he ran into our dressing room in tighty-whitey underwear and kind of danced for us and kind of ran back out, and we were like, 'What the fuck just happened?'"
"We don't really try to fuck with each other, and when we do, it gets really weird. At the same time, there's a positive competition there that we both respond to. When we play with him, we watch him tear it down every night, and that just makes us want to tear it down every night, too. So there's a mutual respect that goes along with that positive competition that will make for great shows no matter where we are. To me, that's the best respect that you can show a fellow artist, especially someone you really enjoy what they do."
