It's hard to follow in Paul McCartney's footsteps, but if there's anyone with the balls and pedigree to do it, Corey Taylor would be that man. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman, who seemingly has his hands in everything, was one of the participants in Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary and a new song featuring Taylor from the soundtrack has surfaced online.
So far, music fans have been indulging in 'House of Gold & Bones, Pt. 1,' the first of a two-part musical installment from Stone Sour. But those who've been following Corey Taylor's exploits know that the music is only a portion of the ambitious scope the singer has for his latest artistic output. Coinciding with the second album release this April, fans will get to check out a corresponding comic book series.
The 'Sound City' soundtrack is definitely star-studded, so when Dave Grohl revealed that he would have several guest stars join him for a concert celebrating the premiere of his 'Sound City' documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, there was naturally a lot of questions about who would be part of the Sound City Players. Now, after a little bit of arm twisting, it's so far been revealed that Corey Taylor, Taylor Hawkins and Alain Johannes will be among those joining Grohl in Park City, Utah, for the gig on Jan. 18.
Slipknot / Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor has heard the question before, and he's getting a little tired about those asking about Slipknot's future. The vocalist tells Metal Sucks that he feels no matter how often he explains his stance on the band's continuation, it's not truly taken to heart.
Stone Sour just dropped their 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1' album and singer Corey Taylor is currently working on the second half of the release, so where does that leave his other band, Slipknot? The vocalist says that after touring the U.S. this past summer, things will scale back for the immediate future.
When Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor initially revealed his band's "grand" plan for their next album, he might have undersold it. As it turns out, releasing the album in two parts is only the beginning, as Taylor is plotting a comic book companion piece and now he's contemplating turning both discs into films.
Corey Taylor is perhaps the most iconic metal vocalist of the new school. Having donned many masks when at the front lines with Slipknot and revealing his human form while performing with Stone Sour, Taylor's voice has rung with incredible force and precision throughout the 2000s. In this first round, however, he's got another modern mastermind to contend with.
