Talk around rival bands Mushroomhead and Slipknot touring together is heating up. During a Q&A on a recent show of "An Evening with Corey Taylor," Corey was asked about the possibility of doing a tour with Mushroomhead, surprisingly Taylor answered with a "maybe" bringing some boos until he explained:

"My problem has never been with that band, at the time my problem was with his fans. The first time we played Cleveland fans came down, did not say shit and his f...ans down and threw stones against us. They beat Paul in the face with a padlock the size of my fist; This while we were on stage. When we finished playing, we took all our shit and went to the hearing. There were plenty of them, but we were all nine of us, was Machine Head and all our friends for a group called Amen. - Say you just take care of the damn thing right there. "

Corey explained on the proposed tour with Mushroomhead:

"I would welcome. I love to do something well, you know. Especially now. I think it would be nice to ride something together and see that shit happens. Slipknot, Mushroomhead, GWAR and Mudvayne's cursed. Because if one thing I learned is that do not cling to a stupid shit, let it go. "

On the other hand, Mushroomhead has also seen the good side of this, published in their official Facebook message:

"Jeffrey Nothing (vocals) ... Honestly, I think Paul would have wanted this to happen and JJ (John Sekula, guitarist Mushroomhead who died in October 2010) as well. Seriously, let's do this 'thing' becomes a reality, join the group!"

As a sign that the bands' relationship is on the mend, a show has been announced featuring members from both bands and their side projects. Here are the details:

Tuesday, April 17th Peabody's in Cleveland, OH

Featuring:
#0 Sid Wilson from Slipknot DJ Set
Stitch From Mushroomhead DJ Set
Nothing (Jeffrey Nothing's side project; first Show in North America)
Tenafly Viper (Waylon's Side Project)

Fans are showing their support for the bands coming together to tour via a Facebook page dedicated to the cause. Slipknot's manager reportedly contacted the Mushroomhead camp and said if they can get enough likes on the facebook page, the tour would be a go.

Make this happen! Jeff Hatrix of Mushroomhead is behind this whole hearted! If he thinks it can be done we should make everyone think it can! Put petty differences aside and keep it metal.

It's probably too early to say this but either the culture of this website has changed or Slipknot and Mushroomhead anti-fans/trolls have moved on to others hobbies.

I've never been a big fan of either band but I do owe Slipknot/Mudvayne a debt of gratitude for rekindling my interest in metal in the late 90's after a 6 month alternative and punk detour... And Jordison's drumming remains distinct and impressive.

Awesome. I for one would love to see it come to fruition. A stop in or near Louisville would be nice. GWAR/Mushroomhead/Mudvayne/Slipknot should all co-headline to the extent that they each get equally massive set. No upstarty bands.

In my opinion, Mudvayne would be a huge part of this. Especially to wear the make-up again. But it doesn't sound like Mudvayne has even commented on it. While the other three would be great, without MV would be dissappointing.

Well "Bonster" this is exactly how I got it from Jeffrey Nothing, so I guess if you're gonna cry about it you should start with him. Corey Taylor has since given another Q&A which can be found on youtube that is in no way associated with the Q&A that was quoted in this press release, so here's an idea... Why don't you get a fvcking clue regarding what the fvck you're talking about and then come back here for a fresh serving of your a$$ Nancy boi.
