Rejoice, Stone Sour fans! We've got one hell of an exclusive for you. As you may already know, Stone Sour / Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has written a total of four comic books to accompany the narrative of Stone Sour's two 'House of Gold & Bones' albums. The second issue hits comic book stores May 22, and we've got a whopping six pages from the comic for you right now, along with an variant cover for the fourth and final issue of the series.
Corey Taylor enjoyed success with his 'Seven Deadly Sins' book in 2012 and somehow amidst all of his Stone Sour and Slipknot's plans, he's managed to write and complete his second book. 'Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With the Paranormal and Stigmatized Zealots and Cynics in the Process)' is on schedule for a July 16 release through Da Cappo Press.
It's been a busy year for Corey Taylor, who not only is promoting Stone Sour's upcoming 'House of Gold & Bones Part 2' album, but has also enjoyed some extra recognition for his collaboration with Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen and Scott Reeder on the single 'From Can to Can't' that's part of the soundtrack for Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary. Loudwire recently spoke with Taylor, who revealed that he's thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Grohl and still has a few names on his dream collaborator list.
In 2011, a Facebook page was launched petitioning 'Saturday Night Live' to bring in Slipknot as a musical guest. It's hard to believe that the metal phenoms have never graced the 'SNL' stage, as they've brought the hate to 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' in the past, along with multiple appearances on 'Conan' and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'
