Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recalls drinking his own vomit from a cup in front of a “freaked out” Marilyn Manson.
And the vocalist says things have previously gotten a little weird backstage when his band and Manson were on the same Ozzfest 2001 bill.
Taylor tells Rolling Stone: “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?'”
Taylor adds that, despite both Slipknot and Manson’s reputation for shenanigans, they tend not to try outdo each other when it comes to pranks.
“… 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.”
They both suck.
