Taylor says his track with the Foo Fighters frontman is "old school"
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has revealed more details about his collaboration with Dave Grohl.
Taylor, who is currently recording a new album with Stone Sour, took to Twitter back in February to say that he had just completed a song with Grohl and Nirvana producer Butch Vig.
The project is part of Grohl’s documentary about Sound City Studios, which pays tribute to the studio where countless classic albums including Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ and Rage Against The Machine’s self-titled album were recorded.
Grohl is getting a collection of musicians to record in the studio as part of the project – including Taylor. Speaking about the collaboration in a video that you can watch below, he tells 98 KUPD:
“[Dave Grohl] sent an email to me, basically explaining this huge project he was doing – the documentary around the infamous board that he got from Sound City, which so many people have recorded on – myself included – we did ‘Iowa’ on that board…He bought it, and I loved the idea that he was like ‘how many album have been made on this board?”
He added: “He wrote the song, he sent me a demo of it and I was like ‘this is fantastic’ and I just basically wrote the first thing that came off the top of my head. He didn’t even hear it until I went down there to record it.”
He continued: “And I laid it down and he was just like “wow”. Because we did it old school – two inch tape, take after take after take. He loves the analogue sound. And with that board, man. It just sings, it was really, really cool.”
It is not yet known when the film or the soundtrack will be released.
