Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor told local TV station KXVO in Omaha, Nebraska that he would love to see a reunion of one of his favorite bands at future editions of the group's Knotfest concerts. Asked who he would like to see on a future bill, Taylor replied, "For me I would like to keep it -- bands from our generation or maybe Slayer would be wonderful to have on the Knotfest shows. Stuff like Korn would be great, Rob Zombie -- maybe even encourage a White Zombie reunion?"

White Zombie broke up in 1996 and founder Rob Zombie has no intention of ever reforming the group again.

This year's Knotfest, which comprised two shows last month in Council Bluffs, Iowa and Somerset, Wisconsin, included sets from Deftones, Lamb Of God, Machine Head, Serj Tankian and more in addition to the headliners.

Slipknot is now taking a break but will regroup at some point in early 2013 to work on its first studio album since 2008 and first since the May 2010 death of bassist Paul Gray.

Slipknot guitarist Jim Root told us that focusing on writing new music for the band has been difficult: "Joey (Jordison, drummer)'s a little monster, he's been writing. I got a CD eight months ago of stuff that he's been working on, and I haven't been able to bring myself to listen to it yet, 'cause I still have to get over the fact that we're missing a big part of the writing process. There's gonna come a time when I'm gonna have to sit in a room with Joey and start jamming just to throw some ideas off of each other, and it's gonna be weird to see how that kind of goes, you know."

Taylor and Root's other band, Stone Sour, will release its new album, House Of Gold And Bones, on October 23rd.
