Slipknot leader Corey Taylor is keen to hook up with Justin Bieber to recreate the two acts' quirky online mash-up Pyschosocial Baby.

The masked heavy rocker admits he's quite fond of Bieber and was thrilled when a fan brought the pair's hits together - Taylor even tried to get together with the pop superstar when he discovered they were both in Washington, D.C. recently.

Taylor tells Revolver, "I know Justin wasn't responsible for it (mash-up), but I just thought it was so cool. Everybody thought I'd be p**sed about it, but I was blown away... I give him respect. He's a very talented kid and he goes above and beyond for his fans.

"I was in Baltimore on my book tour and Justin was nearby in Washington, D.C. I tried to get him down to my reading because I wanted to try to do an acoustic version of Psychosocial Baby together. But he was actually visiting children's hospitals. You can't say anything bad about a guy who's visiting children's hospitals."
