Taylor boasts: I can change baby's nappy in 15 seconds

Corey Taylor says his top secret talent is the ability to change a baby’s nappy in 15 seconds.

It’s just one of the many skills he’s picked up over his life, and he’s grateful for each of them.

The Slipknot frontman tells X3M: “I can change a diaper in 15 seconds – and I mean clean, gone, in, done, boom, pants back on. I’m a good dad, hopefully.”

He adds: “I taught myself how to cook after my first marriage ended, and I figured out I was adept at it. My problem is I can only cook for four or 40. There’s nothing in between. I make giant table-sized lasagnes and there’s tons left over.

Taylor reflects: “When you hit a certain age you start figuring out, ‘I don’t know how to do that,’ and you figure out how to do it.”

He’s also picked up talents through his musical career, including acting, presenting and writing books and comics. He says: “I just love all the interests I have. I don’t know if I’m even good at half this shit – but just the fact that I get the opportunity, it’s fucking insane.”

Earlier this week Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn hailed their maggot fanbase, saying: “These people are going to run the world one day.” The band recently wrapped up the UK leg of their Prepare For Hell tour in support of latest album .5: The Gray Chapter.

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.
