Slipknot star Corey Taylor has fulfilled his dream of working with Dave Grohl after the Foo Fighters frontman invited him to record a collaboration for his new documentary.
The former Nirvana drummer is making a film about the studio where his former band recorded the landmark album Nevermind and is gathering together other artists who also worked at the Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California before its closure last year (11).
He contacted Taylor, who recorded Slipknot's 2001 album Iowa there, and asked him to work on a song with Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen.
Taylor admits he was delighted to hear from Grohl as he has always wanted to work with him, calling it a check mark on his "bucket list".
He tells Artisan News "(Grohl is) doing a documentary about the legendary board from Sound City that everybody and their mom recorded on - everybody from Nevermind to, actually, Iowa. And he's slowly but surely gotten all these people together to make music on that board again. And he called me. He was like, 'Would you like to do a tune?' I was like, 'Are you serious? I'm on a plane right now.'
"And it's really cool, because it's me, Dave and Rick Nielsen on one tune. And I'm like, 'Shh... Excuse me?!' It's just a huge check mark on my bucket list, let's put it that way. And I'm really ecstatic. It's a really good tune."
