Corey Taylor shares his thoughts on Kid Rock's potential Senate run: "No"

Daniel Boczarski/Getty ImagesCorey Taylor's never been shy about sharing his opinions -- a tradition he continued in an interview on Larry King's online talk show Larry King Now. When asked about Kid Rock's potential Senate run, the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman simply replied, "No."

"I've never met him, I've heard he's really really cool," Taylor says. "But I think the worst thing that people can do is assume that you can fill a role that you have no experience in."

"I mean, we're kinda seeing that with the president right now, so there you go," he adds.

Rock, born Robert Ritchie, revealed that he was considering running for the Senate in his home state of Michigan earlier this summer. In his most recent statement, he said that he was still mulling whether or not he'll actually run, but he's planning to use his live shows to promote voter registration.

Elsewhere in the interview, Taylor talks about his friendship with Chester Bennington, Slipknot's next album, and his wish to collaborate with JAY-Z.

"His mind is so massive," Taylor says of the rapper, who collaborated with Linkin Park on the 2004 EP Collision Course. "I think it would be really, really cool."
