Corey Taylor has got a lot to say, which is precisely why millions affectionately know him as “The Great Big Mouth.”
The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman never minces words either on record or on stage, and that’s what solidified him as one of hard rock’s most important singers. Corey’s words have helped carry Slipknot and Stone Sour to multi-platinum status. From Slipknot’s Grammy-winning “Before I Forget” to radio hits such as Stone Sour’s “Through Glass,” his voice and lyrics continue to resonate with fans worldwide.
Iowa stays in his heart. Born and raised in Des Moines, in many ways, Corey’s never left. He started Stone Sour at 19, and the band grew to become a local favorite. However, Sipknot soon came calling. Approached at his night job by the nine-man metal maelstrom, Corey joined Slipknot. Songs like “(sic)” and “Surfacing” became anthems of disillusionment, while “Wait and Bleed” and “Purity” showed just how much range Corey has. Performing blistering sets on Tattoo the Earth 2000 and OZZfest 2001, Corey and Slipknot’s second record, Iowa, ripped through the Billboard Charts and reinforced the phenomenon.
In 2002, he got to show the world more than just Slipknot, resurrecting Stone Sour with the band’s self-titled debut. A worldwide tour followed and “Bother” became a bona fide crossover hit appearing on the Spiderman soundtrack and lighting up radio charts.
The nine-headed metallic hydra returned with its most critically acclaimed album, the Rick Rubin-produced Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses. The record’s third single, “Before I Forget” led to Slipknot’s first Grammy. Then came Stone Sour’s sophomore album, Come What(ever) May in 2006.
It became even easier for Corey to be honest on Slipknot’s fourth masterpiece, All Hope Is Gone in 2008. The record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. Fourth single, “Snuff,” was Slipknot’s fastest top five debut, and the music video paired Taylor with legendary A Clockwork Orange star Malcolm McDowell, bridging the gap between Taylor’s love of classic films and music.
He once again ventured into new territory with Stone Sour’s third offering, Audio Secrecy, when it hit shelves in September 2010.
Corey’s literary debut, "Seven Deadly Sins," is a personal, poignant, and twisted take on what it means to sin. The book, released in July 2011, effectively guts the idea of “Sin”. In this insightful and often hilarious tome, Corey dissects why classic “transgressions” aren’t really sins at all but human characteristics.
