Stone Sour - Marquee Theatre - 2/9/14

In fact, while Corey Taylor and company haven't put out as many records as the masked juggernaut known as Slipknot (the vocalist's other band), Stone Sour continues to prove that it can stand on its own feet as it packed a near sell-out show last night at Tempe's Marquee Theatre.

The band hit the stage at 9:30 p.m. sharp exploding into "The House of Gold & Bones," which set the tone. There clearly is a difference in the unmasked Taylor, who was smiling from ear to ear throughout the 19-song set, and he genuinely seemed happy to be there.
