What does the future hold for Corey Taylor?

Backstage at London’s Alexandra Palace, we sit down with Slipknot’s Corey Taylor for a quick chat about what the future holds for the Great Big Mouth.

Despite struggling through all the aches and pains that come with being in Slipknot at 42 years old, Corey and co. are spending the rest of 2016 touring the States with Marilyn Manson then following it up with Knotfests and “trying to hit as many places as we can”.

Outside of live shows, Taylor has also revealed he’s started work on a new book titled America 51 that deals with how “batshit crazy” the United States is – both in good and bad ways. And he’s got a few guest spots lined up with some friends, but won’t tell us who (the spoil sport).
