- Corey Taylor explains how Faith No More's VMA performance in 1990 inspired him to kick drugs and write music in an interview by Loudwire Epic Rock Tales.
"I kinda laid on the couch for a while and the VMAs were on. It was the year Faith No More first played – they played Epic – and it was amazing! They were so good and they were so powerful and so different to anything I’d ever seen that they really kinda got me up off my ass."
“That’s when I started writing and making music again. So if it wasn’t for Faith No More, I wouldn’t be here.”

Patton, unfortunately unavailable to interview alongside his bandmates, enthusiastically agreed to produce something with Drucker before crossing paths with Adebimpe at an Australian festival. Adebimpe, a Faith No More fan since the age of 14, admits to being starstruck by Patton's eminence, to "saying hi before nervously looking at my feet and walking away"
