In the intimate interview below courtesy of Fuse, vocalist COREY TAYLOR (STONE SOUR, SLIPKNOT) talks about the important lessons to be learned from the slasher flick, Halloween:
Taylor recently sat down with Iowa DJ Andy Hall of Lazer 103.3 FM to discuss his new book, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven. In the first clip, Taylor discusses the fact that the book's subtitle was created just to screw with the people at the publishing company; some of the locations in Des Moines where stories from the book took place; and more. The second and third clips find him discussing atheism, haunted venues he's played, and more.
On July 15th, Da Capo Press published the second book from Taylor entitled, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process). The 256 page hardcover is available for pre-order via the Amazon link below. A paperback version will go on sale in June 2014.
In this book, Corey Taylor undertakes something never before attempted in the history of rock superstardom: he takes you with him as he journeys undercover through various ghostbusting groups who do their best to gather information and evidence about the existence of spirits. Some are more credible than others, and, frankly, some are completely insane, but all are observed with appropriate seriousness as Taylor attempts to better understand some of the spooky things that have happened to him in his life, especially that night at the Cold House. But that’s not all, folks. Taylor once again gives you a behind-the-scenes tour of his crazy life and the many beyond-the-grave events he’s encountered. (You’ll be shocked how often Slipknot has been invaded by the supernatural.) Taylor also touches on his religious background and how it led him to believe in much more than the Man in the Sky.
