STONE SOUR Drummer's First Child Due In September

On July 29, Andy Hall of the Des Moines, Iowa radio station Lazer 103.3 conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor. You can now watch the chat in two parts below. During the interview, Corey revealed that STONE SOUR drummer Roy Mayorga and his wife Cazzie are expecting their first child in September. Taylor said, "Actually, their due date is the day [STONE SOUR is scheduled to] play [the Rock In] Rio [festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil], so we're praying that it comes early. And it's a girl, so they're notorious for coming early. So we'll see what happens."

STONE SOUR canceled a number of tour dates this past spring after Mayorga suffered a stroke following a gig in Des Moines, Iowa.

Mayorga joined STONE SOUR in 2006 after the band's previous drummer, Joel Ekman, was forced to leave the group in order to spend time with his son, who was diagnosed with brain stem cancer.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Taylor recently did an extensive interview with HardDrive Radio in which he revealed that STONE SOUR is definitely planning to release a concert DVD and cover songs EP in one package sometime before the end of the year. Taylor went into detail about the project, saying, "We shot a concert last year on the co-headlining tour that we did with AVENGED SEVENFOLD, and we shot it in Brighton (England), and we've been trying to get it together ever since and it's just been insane. There's been so much work and we just haven't had a chance to kind of get a handle on it. But we've been talking about doing a covers EP forever. This is just a kind of a cool way to put something cool out that the fans will dig."

Taylor added that each member of STONE SOUR will get to pick one song for the covers EP.

The singer also said that the recent run of European festival shows he did with SLIPKNOT have warmed up him more to the idea of the group making a new record, but still cautions that it's not happening anytime soon.

Taylor did say that SLIPKNOT will do some more touring, possibly in the U.S. this time around.

Taylor is promoting his new book, "Seven Deadly Sins - Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good", by doing appearances where he reads, performs a few songs and signs copies of the book. He also has some solo shows coming up, on August 4 and August 5 in Las Vegas.
