Corey Tay­lor: Chad Kroeger is Cap­tain Ego from Planet Douche

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Corey Tay­lor has la­belled Chad Kroeger "Cap­tain Ego from Planet Douche". The Slip­knot and Stone Sour front­man in­sists he has noth­ing against Nick­el­back and that his prob­lem lies with the 'Pho­to­graph' group's 42-year-old front­man af­ter he called his band a "gim­mick" ear­lier this year. Speak­ing to Philadel­phia's 93.3 WMMR ra­dio sta­tion, Corey said: "That just tells you the level of ego you're deal­ing with. "And I've said this since day one it's not the band. As soon as that story hit, the band called and apol­o­gised. They were like, 'It's not us, we prom­ise. It's this guy. We don't...' And I had hung out with the band be­fore and they're su­per-cool dudes. "I don't want peo­ple hold­ing it against the band, be­cause it's not them. It's Cap­tain Ego from Planet Douche." The pair have been em­broiled in a war of words af­ter Chad called Stone Sour "Nick­el­back lite" dur­ing an in­ter­view. Asked about their feud, Corey pre­vi­ously said: "I'm not talk­ing about that d***head. Why do I care what Chad Kroeger says? "I'll tell you what. This is how I fig­ured it out ... Chad Kroeger is to rock what KFC is to chicken. "Is that wrong? I feel like I'm not wrong. I'll still eat it, but I'm not gonna feel good about it. It tastes like the same thing." How­ever, the 'Dual­ity' rocker has pre­vi­ously in­sisted that his an­i­mos­ity does not ex­tend to­wards the other mem­bers of the Cana­dian rock group. Speak­ing last month, the singer ex­plained that he has no prob­lem with Ryan Peake, Mike Kroeger, and Daniel Adair. He shared: "Ev­ery­body else in that band I'm very, very cool with; I've hung out with them. "It's just 'Face Like A Foot' who I can't re­ally hang out with. He's got a face like a foot. Am I wrong?"
