Dave “Higgo” Higgins of Australia’s long-running rock station Triple M conducted an interview with STONE SOUR and SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor yesterday (Saturday, February 23) at the Brisbane stop of this year’s Soundwave festival in Australia. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
Taylor performed with FOO FIGHTERS mainman Dave Grohl as part of a new band called the SOUND CITY PLAYERS on January 18 at a concert in Park City during Sundance. The show featured what a publicist described as “core musicians” as well as “special guests” who appear in Grohl‘s new documentary, “Sound City: Real To Reel”.
Taylor‘s second book, a follow-up to his 2011 memoir “Seven Deadly Sins”, will be published this coming summer. The tentative title is “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven”. He explained what it’s about, “It’s basically my experiences with the paranormal, and ghost sightings and occurrences, and I’ve had a lot, enough that I’m writing a damn book about it. But it’s actually . . . it’s about how can I believe in ghosts, and not in God? So it’s a very interesting conversation. And that’s kind of what I wanted to do with ‘Seven Deadly Sins’, was start a conversation and get people thinking about it.”
“Seven Deadly Sins” made the New York Times hardcover non-fiction best sellers list after it came out in July 2011, debuting at No. 26. The paperback edition, issued last year, features a bonus chapter.
Taylor promoted the book by doing a solo tour in which he combined readings, songs and discussion with the audience.
