There’s no slowing down for Corey Taylor. In the past year alone, Taylor has rocked stages with Slipknot, released a covers EP with more planned from Stone Sour and he’s releasing his third book called You’re Making Me Hate You later this month. In addition, Taylor is getting ready to play a solo tour coinciding with his book’s release and he’s posted new video of a recent rehearsal.
Given that Taylor has been focused on covers with Stone Sour’s series of EPs, it should come as no surprise that a few covers might be included in his upcoming set.
