Stone Sour played a set in Moscow late last week, but one fan got more than he bargained for when he attempted to take a selfie with frontman Corey Taylor.

The guy managed to get onstage and began to approach the vocalist – but security got to him before he could get near Taylor, with one of the road crew slamming him to the ground with a tackle that would easily make highlight reels in rugby or American Football.

As the guy was being dragged away, Taylor said: “Sucks to be you, dude. Don’t come on my stage, motherfucker.”

When he's not watching fans being wrestled to the floor, Corey is working on the new Slipknot album. The Iowa band headline the UK’s Download festival next year and will embark on a 2019 European tour to tie-in with the Donington show.
