SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR: Videos Are Killing Our Imagination

STONE SOUR/SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor says that he is not a big fan of the music video, claiming that it is killing our imagination.

"The beautiful thing about music is that in your head you can set that music to anything," he told Australia's Undercover News. "If you start adding visuals to all the music, you are really cutting off a great piece of your imagination. If you start adding visuals to all music, then that is all you see when you hear the music. The great thing about the great albums of a long time ago is the fact that you could apply that music to anything in your head. You could apply to going to see the band live, you could apply it to anything in your life, you could apply it to your dreams, seeing yourself succeed, seeing yourself with your friends, you know. If you put visuals to everything, then that is all you see. We kill our imagination more and more everyday. I think that would be a really bad thing to do".

In related news, if you've ever wondered what happens when the guys from STONE SOUR start spitting out lines from "Austin Powers in Goldmember", and singing a ballsy version of the classic C+C MUSIC FACTORY tune "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" , MuchMusic caught it on tape, and you can check it out here (in streaming Real video).
