Though it may not be something his tour aides will tell you, apparently it’s starting to grind his gears slightly. 

In a recent interview, quoted by Loudwire, Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch says that fans are constantly comparing him to Corey Taylor of Slipknot/Stone Sour.

Though he doesn’t speak any ill will on Taylor (they are friends), he says the following:

 “Corey and me have a really fun nature of competitive, y’know, whatever. And I just think it’s funny – I have kids that come up to me all the time saying, ‘You and Corey. You and Corey this, Corey, Corey, Corey.’ And I’m like, ‘I get it! I get it!’ It’s like, ‘Jesus, Corey, take a break. Gimmie some love man.”

Corey Taylor is pretty much the poster boy for Active Rock these days, so it’s easy to see why. At least Moody isn’t taking it too hard, or being a jerk about it – he just was being honest.

Word to the wise, rock stars have feelings too.
