“You get to the point where you realize that what you do means so much to you that you wanna do it at the absolute top of your game. And you know me — I’m a nut, so if I’m going all the way, I’m gonna go all the way and above and beyond.
“I’ve struggled with drinking for a long time, especially with having that kind of addictive personality side to me,” he continued. “But at the same time, I’ve also had this weird switch where when I decide to quit something, that’s it. And this year is ten years for me. And then I quit smoking, which I never thought I would do. And that was just as difficult, if not worse. But then you get to the point where you start going, ‘Okay, we’re done quitting things. What can we do to improve ourselves?’ So I started really looking at the way I eat and the way I take care of myself. I started training again and really trying to get physically fit to the point where if I went on stage, I knew that I could do the best show that I’ve done in twenty years. And that became part of just keeping this thing alive.”
4 years ago during a 2016 appearance on the “Meet Your Heroes” SiriusXM radio show, Taylor talked about what he was like when he was under the influence of alcohol saying he turned “vicious” and would hav a “dark attitude..adding “To this day, there are still a lot of friends of mine who are, like, ‘If you ever fall off the wagon, don’t call me.’ So I know it’s in me, and I think that’s the difference between me and a lot of other people is the fact that I can at least admit it. I just let booze get in the way for a while and then I kind of pulled myself out of it. I feel like I’m doing my best work now, to be honest.”
Slipknot is currently out on the road promoting their latest album “We Are Not Your Kind”, which was released last August.
