Corey Taylor

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." Other hit tunes by Slipknot include "Psychosocial" and "Snuff." Some of Stone Sour's popular songs are "Bother," "Say You'll Haunt Me," "Absolute Zero and "Tired."  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"). And most recently is featured on Korn's newest single,"A Different World."

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 the last Sharknado!

What is Corey Taylor reading?

I asked Corey just that on Twitter. His response, "I'm re-reading 'The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes'!"

Gotta love that he's a rocker, writer, and a reader!
