UPDATE - 02/25/2016 5:05 PM: Corey Taylor has clarified comments he made in a recent interview pertaining to his future in Slipknot.
After a quote about stepping "away from Slipknot at some point" went viral, Taylor sent out the following tweet:
I'M NOT QUITTING SLIPKNOT.
Listen to/read interviews IN CONTEXT not out. I talk about time off. This is why I dislike 'cut n paste' journos.

Time off from Slipknot isn't anything new, of course. Between fronting Stone Sour and other side projects, that's just par for the course for Taylor.
As for the "'cut n paste' journos," sorry, man.
If you’re a Slipknot fan, don’t panic, but you may want to check the band out on their tour with Marilyn Manson this summer.
Corey Taylor recently sat down for an interview with Daniel P. Carter from BBC Radio 1 on his “Someone Who Isn’t Me” podcast and said that he “might step away from Slipknot at some point” because he doesn’t know if he’d be able to physically perform with the same energy fans expect from him when he’s in his fifties.
While he said he wouldn’t retire from music completely, can you imagine Slipknot without Corey Taylor? Let us know your opinion in the comments section.
