Corey Taylor Calls Axl Rose ‘D—–bag’ for Making Fans Wait
Corey Taylor is in a fighting mood lately. A week after the Slipknot singer slammed Kanye West for the rapper's "I'm the greatest living rock star" comment, he's now blasting Axl Rose for making Guns N' Roses fans wait for the band to come onstage at its concerts.
During a recent appearance on the Opie Radio show, a listener called in to criticize Taylor for an incident a few years ago in which the Slipknot singer placed his testicles on Rose's piano, which was in an off-limits room backstage at a festival the two bands were playing. Taylor then responded to the angry fan's question, "How dare you do that to someone like Axl?" "Knowing Axl, it's quite easy," he replies. "I mean, anybody who makes his fans wait for two to three hours for him to go onstage, I have no respect for."
The fan tells Taylor, "You wish you could be Axl Rose," which gets the singer to admit that he loves Guns N' Roses, "but when you make your fans wait that long -- and I don't give a f--- what hard-on just said, 'Oh, we expect it' -- well, you're a f---ing idiot then. All right? Figure it the f--- out. You know why there are really no original f---ing members of Guns N' Roses left? Because he made them wait three f---ing hours! You want an Appetite reunion? Tell him to f---ing stop being a d-----bag."

In the meantime, Rose and the current GNR lineup may or may not be getting ready for their third Las Vegas residency. A recent poster at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino there reads “All we need is just a little patience: Guns N’ Roses. Coming September 2015, a new resort attraction.” There's no official word on what this could mean, but some fans are speculating that the band is gearing up for another run of shows there sometime in the future.
