Corey Taylor has revealed his tips for trashing hotel rooms – even though he says he’s only done it once.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman offered the light-hearted advice during his appearance on BBC Radio 4 panel show The Museum Of Curiosity.

Asked whether he’d indulged in room-trashing, Taylor said: “I did once, years ago when I was still drinking.

“I don’t recommend it, because they pile on charges that you didn’t know you’d accrued.

“But this was back in the days of tube TVs, which do a lot of damage – especially when you get a good strong cord and you start waving it about.

“I didn’t break the window, but I broke the wall.”

Later in the episode, Taylor discusses his theories on alien abduction explains why he’d like a deep-fried chicken wing preserved for posterity.

Slipknot are currently touring North America with Marilyn Manson – a trip that was delayed while Taylor underwent emergency surgery breaking his neck without knowing it.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
