Six Things You May Not Know About Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour
Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has been all over music news lately. Headlines have ranged from "Corey Taylor: There's Nothing Worse Than Forced Music" to "Slipknot's Corey Taylor Robbed of Music Gear, Late Bassists' Guitars Stolen."
There are things that have come to light this past year that any fan of the hardcore musician already knows: Slipknot will make more music, maybe released in 2014. Stone Sour is relentlessly touring. Taylor's comic book ventures are going swimmingly. And he's continuing to write books.
There are a lot of things about Taylor thought that often aren't included in interviews, so how about we focus on a few things you may now know about Taylor for this week's Metal Mondays?
1. His Goal From Day 1 Was to Make Rock Movies Taylor intends to step into Rob Zombie territory and make movies, usually flicks based on his concept discs House of Gold & Bones Part 1 and 2. A couple of years ago, he and Clown (Shawn Crahan) from Slipknot started Living Breathing Films.
"We're about to break ground on our first film, which we've been putting together over the past year or so," Taylor told Up on the Sun. (Here's the full interview.) "I've had to learn the hard way that the movie industry moves a little slower than the music industry. We are very, very close to really starting to get it together so we can make our first film. I'm really stoked.
"That being said, I'm actually starting to put together two outlines for two movies that would be based around the House of Gold and Bones album. Yeah, that's been my endgame since day one; is to make two cult classic fantasy movies. To make rock movies in a way that's never been done before."
