Corey Taylor’s Kerrang! Awards Acceptance Speech

Video footage of Corey Taylor‘s acceptance speech at this year’s Kerrang! Awards is available for viewing below.

The ceremony was co-hosted by Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor.

He paid tribute to the band’s bassist, Paul Gray, who died on May 24, 2010.

Taylor was emotional as he collected Gray’s award for services to metal.

“Little known fact,” he said. “Paul Gray wrote almost all the music for Slipknot.

“That is a big, big, big misconception and he deserves way more credit than he’s ever been given.

“So I want you to raise your glass…. he was the heart, the soul, the best dude I ever knew.”
