Corey Taylor, lead singer of hard rock outfits Stone Sour and Slipknot (and currently a featured member of Dave Grohl’s all-star Sound City Players), recently discussed his political views during an exclusive interview with Radio.com, showing support for President Obama and lamenting what he considers the uncompromising ways of the Republican party.
“Obviously I’m stoked that (Obama) was reelected, because Mitt Romney is much more of a Bond villain than President material,” he said regarding the 2012 election.
“We’ll just have to see, you know? There’s a tendency with the liberals to overcompensate for people’s common sense sometimes,” Taylor explained. “And yet, the conservative side of it scares the crap out of me, because they are so zealous and they are so stuck in their ways, and look at where we’re at right now. We’re at loggerheads right now because people can’t learn to compromise.”
