Slipknot - Corey Taylor: 'Slipknot Is Not Splitting'
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has moved to silence speculation about the future of the band by dismissing rumours of an imminent split.
Fans of the heavy rock group were thrown into a panic earlier this month (Dec13) when drummer Joey Jordison announced he had left the band after 18 years.
Taylor fuelled gossip about a rift in the band by refusing to comment on the reasons behind Jordison's exit, saying, "Legally and respectfully, I can't say a lot about it... We're trying to protect him, trying to protect us... It's difficult."
However, he has now moved to silence mounting speculation that Slipknot is on the verge of breaking up.
He writes in a post on his Twitter.com page, "For those who think The Knot are falling apart, you are greatly and sadly mistaken. Bring on 2014. Great things are coming. Stay tuned..."
