COMMENTS

The Junk Beer Kidnap Band, or simply JBKB, is an American alternative rock band formed in 2009 in Des Moines, Iowa. They are referred to as a side-project of Corey Taylor, a member of metal band Slipknot and member/founder of hard rock band Stone Sour. Since its formation, JBKB have currently solely been a touring band for lead singer and guitarist Taylor's solo work. No official studio album has been announced.

Originally conceptualized as "the first stoner rock disco funk band" by vocalist and guitarist Corey Taylor, JBKB were formed in 2009. To begin with they wrote 9 songs together, however it was when the band were jamming Taylor's solo material that he asked them to "back him up" on his shows he was planning. Taylor describes it as "pure Midwest rock" with "big chords, huge choruses and a lot of melody."

Bassist Fred Missouri was fired after a couple of gigs and replaced by Jason Christopher, who is also current bassist for New York industrial metal/thrash metal band Prong.

Ryan Berrier (Green Death) played drums in this side-project.
