Well, it seems the veteran musician and Stone Sour frontman takes kindly to singer Ben Barlow and company’s imitation of the Iowa-born icons. “That’s pretty badass,” said Taylor on Thursday, retweeting a live pic of the lads in ‘knot gear.



And, boy howdy, are the members of Neck Deep well aware of this development. Not long after Taylor’s tweet, the bemused pop-punkers posted a message cheekily questioning the unthinkable “Approval from the G.O.A.T.” they received.
