Slipknot’s Corey Taylor in Sydney
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor made a special in-store appearance today in Sydney to sign his book Seven Deadly Sins at Dymocks, George Street in Sydney’s CBD.
A long queue of Slipknot fans peacefully waited their turn to meet Corey, get their books signed and get a photo with the Slipknot and Stonesour singer.
Corey is currently touring Australia for the Soundwave Festival and is also doing some sideshows. Last night they played at the Entertainment Centre in Sydney and March 1st they are playing a show at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, before playing Soundwave Melbourne on show on Friday.
Seven Deadly Sins
Corey’s book Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good was released in 2011.
‘I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me – not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later’. The action begins in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Corey Taylor, frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, systematically set about committing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He has picked fights with douche bags openly brandishing guns. He has set himself on fire at parties and woken up in dumpsters after cocaine binges. He lost his virginity at eleven. He got rich and famous and immersed himself in booze, women, and chaos until one day he realised, suddenly, that he didn’t need any of that at all. Candid. Literate. Brilliant. “Seven Deadly Sins” is a brutally honest look ‘at a life that could have gone horribly wrong at any turn’, and the soul-searching and self-discovery it took to set it right.
