During a recent interview with Seattle radio station KISW, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor dropped a hilarious bomb. The singer was apparently asked to replace Poison’s Bret Michaels on VH1’s 'reality' dating show, Rock Of Love—and his response, which you can read below, was great.
“I wanna say about seven years ago, I got called about being on ‘Rock Of Love’. I think Bret had passed on it, on one of the seasons. And I was, like, ‘Don’t ever call me again.’
“Honestly, I was sitting there… I was, like, [trying to figure out] who in their right mind thought I was the perfect dude for ‘Rock of Love 12′ or whatever the hell it was. And I was just, like, there’s some idiots in this business. I’m just letting you know. I don’t know if you got that memo. There’s some stupid people [who] were given the keys to the kingdom.
“I was talking to my manager. I was, like, ‘Where the hell…? What conversation were they having where they went from one end to me? How the hell did you get to me and thought that I would be down with that?’ At first I was pissed, and then I just started laughing my… I was just, like, ‘You’ve gotta be kidding! Really?!'”
Eventually, Taylor came to his senses, and realized how amazing this could’ve been.
“In retrospect, I was, like, ‘Man, I should have just done one week and just ruined it.’ [I should done] the complete opposite of what could have been and just destroyed these people’s dreams.”
