Later then, Corey continued by revealing his inspiration for his new mask. According to him, a young friend of his named Connor deless helped him design the mask. He also mentioned what he called the mask and said it was the smiling skull mask for him.
“I did it with a young man named Connor Deless, who is super cool” Taylor keep on going. âAnd he flew away. I explained to him everything I wanted to put in it.
“And he got to laugh at something real quick, man.” And it really got to the essence of what I was trying to configure. It was almost immediate.
âAnd then, really, it was just a matter of waiting for him to build that damn thingâ¦ We made the mold. We built it right over my face, so it fits like a glove.
âAnd it’s hot as balls, but it’s so awesome on stage – it looks really, really cool. I call it the smiling skull mask.
Last August, Corey Taylor had explained what he wants to do in the future. To say he has a jazz style, Corey had said he wanted to make a jazz album.
“I really want to make a jazz album at some point” Taylor said. âI talked about it in a few different interviews and stuff.
âBut I definitely have a certain style of jazz that I gravitate towards more – like a dirtier side of jazz, whiskey jazz is what they callâ¦
âI always want to make a darker acoustic album. I don’t write stuff like this all the time, and the reason I don’t is because it’s so easy for me, I can write this shit in my sleep.
âI like to trip over all the genres that I grew up listening to and try to create an amalgam hybrid that is exciting and a little bit pop and brings people to what I was listening to.
âOther than that, I don’t know, man. I did everything.
