Corey Taylor is an amazing talent. Taylor is the lead singer and lyricist of Slipknot and Stone Sour - two multi-platinum rock bands. Both Stone Sour and Slipknot have been nominated for several Grammy awards. Slipknot won a "Best Metal Performance" Grammy in 2006 for "Before I Forget." Corey also lends his killer vocals to other bands. He guested on Dave Grohl's Sound City album and documentary (love the song "From Can to Can't"), on Korn's single,"A Different World, " and most recently with Code Orange. The new Stone Sour two-disk 'HYDROGRAD Deluxe Edition' will be available August 31. It features unreleased covers, b-sides, live recordings and alternate versions of songs from the album.
Corey is the author of three best selling books: Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good , A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, and You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look at the Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left. Taylor also occasionally acts. You may have caught him in a Doctor Who episode and a Sharknado movie! He is currently on tour with Stone Sour and is working on a new Slipknot album.
