SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor has uploaded a three-minute video clip of a scene he described as “the average Friday night at
the Taylor house.” Check it out below.
The audio version of Taylor‘s book “Seven Deadly Sins – Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good” will be released on September 26 in the U.S. and Canada. Pre-order from Amazon.com at this location.
Taylor recently told Artisan News that had a backup plan if he didn’t get to read the book himself. He said, “I always had a plan that if I didn’t get to read it, I had three people that I wanted to read it: Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken or Betty White. Those are my three that, I’m just like, I would love to have that happen. But I’m not gonna get out of it; I’m gonna have to read it myself. Which is fine, seeing as it’s my kind of flow.”
Recording an audiobook shouldn’t have been too difficult since Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio the book was meant to feel like a dialogue. “People who know me, they call me and it’s like, ‘Dude, I can’t get your voice out of my head when I’m reading this book. It’s like I’m talking to you!'” he said. “And that, that’s the best compliment I could ever get, you know, because that’s really what it’s supposed to be, is a conversation. It’s supposed to be me trying to make a point and trying to make an argument, and apparently I’ve done pretty well.”
Taylor said that his publisher was originally not interested in an audiobook version of “Seven Deadly Sins”, but that a deluge of requests changed that.
The book made the New York Times hardcover non-fiction best sellers list after it came out last month, debuting at No. 26.
Taylor has been promoting the book by doing appearances where he reads, performs a few songs and signs copies.
