Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor thinks he only has “five years left” of touring after which he himself would help find a replacement.
In conversation with Germany’s Rock Antenne, Taylor said, “As long as I can physically do it, and as long as there are people there to see it, man, I’ll continue to do it.”
“Now, if the quality starts to fail, then I’ll know it’s time to hand it in,” he continued. “And I’ve already thought about it — I’ve already thought about, maybe I’ve got another five years left of physically touring like this. I try to take care of myself. I work out when I can.”
The Slipknot frontman then added that before his departure from the band, he would “help them find somebody” to replace him.
“If they wanted to continue and I wanted to retire, I would help them find somebody, to be honest,” Taylor said. “This band has always been bigger than the sum of its own parts. And it was hard moving on without Paul. It was hard moving on when we had to part ways with Joey. It’s always been hard when the original nine ceases to be the original nine, but at the same time, the ones who are here are here because we love it, and we’ve always gotten something out of it.”
