“So many people told me that I couldn’t do this, I couldn’t do that, I couldn’t be somebody. ‘There’s no way you’re gonna make it coming out of Des Moines, there’s no way you’re gonna be able to make music, nobody cares about your music, be realistic.’ Be realistic? Are you kidding me? This is as real as it gets. Reality is what you make it, normal is what you make it. If I wanted to make music for the rest of my life, there is no good reason why I couldn’t.”—Corey Taylor.
