The no-holds-barred story of Corey Taylor's life as a sinner
Corey Taylor is the hard-living, hard-talking frontman of bands Slipknot and Stone Sour. Renowned for his flamboyant and disturbing stage presence, Corey has lived it all. Starting in the early 90s, Corey threw himself into the hard-drinking, hard-loving, live-for-the-moment-life of a small town Iowa hero – Corey Fucking Taylor! As his career went stratospheric, and he found himself rich, wanted and on-the-road his behaviour got more and more extreme. Everything you can think of, Corey’s done it…girls, drugs, excess of every kind.
The Seven Deadly Sins is Corey’s story, told through the prism of the seven deadly sins. His years of excess eventually made him sit down and start to think about what it was to ‘sin’ and whether ‘sinning’ could – or should – be recast as a good rather than bad thing. Yes, Corey’s hurt people, and done bad things, but if sin is what makes the man, then can it ever be wrong?!
This isn’t a straightforward memoir, this is Corey’s no-holds-barred story told through his own unique philosophy, honed through years of the craziest and most hedonistic excess in rock.
