Video footage of Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) and Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) performing a cover version of Judas Priest’s “Electric Eye” with Duff McKagan’s Loaded at the third annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which was held this past Wednesday night (April 20) at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles, California, can be viewed below.
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor appeared on this week’s episode of reality series “NY Ink”. #8 got a tattoo in tribute to late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray. A clip from the episode can be viewed below.
Paul Gray passed away in May 2010, leaving behind his wife Brenna and daughter October, who was born the following August. Corey Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio recently that he is still dealing with different emotions about his late bandmate. “I don’t get mad at him as much as I’m sad for him, because obviously I’m watching October get bigger and she’s lovely and she is her father’s daughter — very much so. I haven’t really had a chance to kind of deal with the anger yet.”

Corey Taylor (#8 of Slipknot, Stone Sour) appeared as a guest speaker last night (Wednesday, June 8) at the Oxford University.
Corey Taylor addressed the 120 or so students in the grand hall of Oxford Union, Oxford University’s famous debating society.
Corey’s message for the crowd was to forget about following their dreams. Identify what you are good at, and pursue that instead, he said, according to The New York Times.
“Too many people chase dreams that they don’t understand,” he said. “Too many people try to go for things that they’d like to do but they’re not realistic enough to know they don’t have the talent.”
When asked why when he so espouses authenticity, he belongs to a band (Slipknot) whose members all wear grotesque and identity-obscuring masks on stage, Taylor said it had to do with his chaotic and troubled early years in Iowa.
“When you put that mask on you go places you would never imagine,” Taylor said, according to The New York Times. “It comes from a spot that’s uncomfortable and really dark.” He added: “The mask was a way to visualize everything I was feeling in heart and my gut — all that pain I was holding on to. I didn’t have the worst childhood but I didn’t have the best, and when you grow up like that you have certain limitations invariably stuck inside you. Slipknot was a way to work it out.”
A video interview with #8 conducted immediately before he spoke at the Oxford University can be seen below.
Unfortunately the Promoters of the Sofia Sonisphere date have decided to cancel the show. The good news is Slipknot has added a special headline show at Columbiahalle in Berlin for June 21st! Tickets will be available starting this Friday, for more info click here.
Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor will appear on this week’s episode of “NY Ink”. According to TV Guide, the show centers on “Miami Ink”‘s Ami James as he opens a tattoo shop in New York. Drama comes verbally, physically, even emotionally — as in the form of Taylor, who cries as he gets a “tribute” tattoo to his deceased Slipknot bandmate Paul Gray.
Check out a preview clip below.
The program airs on Thursday, June 9 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT on TLC. Go to this location for more information.
Corey Taylor told Caller.com’s “Weekly Chatter” that he is still struggling with Slipknot bassist Paul Gray‘s loss and isn’t guaranteeing anything about the band’s future.
“There’s a part of me that’s ready [to carry on with the band] and there’s a part of me that’s not,” Taylor said. “Honestly, I have a lot of trepidation about it. I don’t know how to feel. I know a lot of the guys in the band are trying not to show that side, and I can’t.”
Slipknot/Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor was interviewed at the first-ever Carolina Rebellion festival, which was held on Saturday, May 7 at Metrolina Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina.
When asked about his plans for the foreseeable future, Taylor said, “We’re talking about doing another Stone Sour album. I’ve already got about 16 songs written. We’re gonna do something… This will the first time we get to do back-to-back albums. It’s something I’m pretty excited about. I’ve got a really great concept and hopefully it flushes out that way. We still haven’t gotten together and demoed everything yet. But if I have it my way, it’s gonna be the biggest thing we’ve ever done.”
