1. His Goal From Day 1 Was to Make Rock Movies Taylor intends to step into Rob Zombie territory and make movies, usually flicks based on his concept discs House of Gold & Bones Part 1 and 2. A couple of years ago, he and Clown (Shawn Crahan) from Slipknot started Living Breathing Films.

"We're about to break ground on our first film, which we've been putting together over the past year or so," Taylor told Up on the Sun. (Here's the full interview.) "I've had to learn the hard way that the movie industry moves a little slower than the music industry. We are very, very close to really starting to get it together so we can make our first film. I'm really stoked.

"That being said, I'm actually starting to put together two outlines for two movies that would be based around the House of Gold and Bones album. Yeah, that's been my endgame since day one; is to make two cult classic fantasy movies. To make rock movies in a way that's never been done before."
