Taylor Roberts From Taproot On His Bands And Being Confused For Corey Taylor Download

23:08 Download May 7th

Taylor Roberts from Taproot/Riding With Killers joins me on Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown. 

We started off talking about RWK. He explained how the band formed, talked about their debut record “Full Circle” and more. He said they’ve done some pretty big shows, but it’s time to get that band out to the forefront. “We’re really getting ready to launch this band in the right way,” he told me. 

He talked to me about being a fan of Taproot, and finally becoming a member of the band. He spoke about how he ended up in Detroit through a member of the band, coming from Mississippi.

When I asked Taproot frontman Stephen Richards and drummer Jarrod Montague to give me some questions for Taylor, they did not disappoint. They told me to ask him about meeting the Kittie in Las Vegas. Apparently, he was a huge fan growing up as a teenager. 

They also told me to ask him about looking like Slipknot frontman, Corey Taylor. That was hysterical! I guess he’s been confused for him several times. 

In Taproot, he plays guitar, but in Riding With Killers he’s more upfront. “The challenge of putting myself in the lead singer spot, and then finally getting to write about things that have been on my mind and in my head and heart for years, is very cathartic and it’s been honestly a great release”.

It was great to have Taylor on Tallkin’ Rock!
