Stone Sour/Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently had a chat with Loudwire and discussed the rush of receiving applause, aswell as circled back to the ever-lasting dilemma surrounding phone usage at concerts. When asked about what it is like to receive a huge applause, Taylor responded with the following: (Transcribing via AltPress)
"It’s adrenaline, sex, it’s rage, it’s passion, it’s happiness … it’s all of these incredible all encompassing feelings all wrapped up into one, but it feels completely different than any of them.”
After this, Corey Taylor chatted briefly about moshpits happening during tracks where he didn't foresee it, stating that he thinks it's very off putting when fans mosh to their track 'Bother':
 “I’ve seen people mosh to "Bother" before, it’s very off putting. Listen, if you’re out there, you need f–king help. You don’t mosh to 'Bother.' You hold your phone up. You used to hold your lighter up. Now we hold our phones up, or we stare into it while we’re watching real life on your screen. Knock that s–t off, too. Stop it.”

Last but not least, Corey Taylor re-visited the ungoing struggle surrouding fans using their phones at shows. He states that he's fine with it, but does have something to share on the subject:
“It’s fine. Bring your phone, take pictures, do whatever you want. But why? You’re there. Take pictures, do whatever you want, but why are you filming it? It’s one thing to film it, but it’s another thing to just be staring at your screen while you’re filming it. It’s right there! Are you so terrified of real life that you can’t do anything unless it’s on that little four-by-four screen? Ugh. It’s very weird.”

Stone Tour are heavily touring at the moment to support the release of their brand new record 'Hydrograd'. Check out their website and catch a show of theirs this Summer/Fall.
