Corey Taylor Talks 'Seven Deadly Sins' + Future of Slipknot
Corey Taylor had one hell of a year in 2011. Slipknot returned to the stage after the tragic death of bassist Paul Gray and Taylor went on a spoken word/acoustic solo tour and even released the New York Times bestselling book, 'Seven Deadly Sins.' In that vein, Taylor has wasted no time in 2012, hyping up the upcoming album from his other band, Stone Sour.
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has made a ton of noise during his 'Seven Deadly Sins' book tour, where he shares intimate stories and personal opinions with fans while playing acoustic jams. Taylor recently caught up with MTV's Headbangers Ball to discuss the tour and his upcoming creative projects.
Slipknot / Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor allows fans into his mind through his music and now through his book ‘Seven Deadly Sins.’ In an intimate performance at Highline Ballroom in New York City last night (Dec. 5), fans enjoyed a spoken word, Q&A and acoustic performance from the talented frontman.
He sounds a whole lot different with an acoustic guitar in his hand and no backing band than he does fronting the nine-headed beast Slipknot or the hard rock outfit Stone Sour, but regardless of environment he's in, Corey Taylor has presence and star power, as he proved on Oct. 22 at ZZ Top's La Grange Fest in Austin, Texas.
Corey Taylor has lined up a fall North America tour of intimate performances, appropriately dubbed 'An Evening With Corey Taylor.' Each stop on the 20-city solo trek with the Slipknot/Stone Sour singer will feature an acoustic set, a spoken word segment with readings from his 'Seven Deadly Sins' book and a Q&A session with the audience.
