Corey Taylor now officially a bestselling author

The inimitable Corey Taylor, frontman for Slipknot and Stone Sour, has added a new string to his bow and is now a best-selling author.  Corey’s debut outing, ‘Seven Deadly Sins,’ crashed into the Sunday Times Bestseller list this weekend at No. 2 on the hardback non-fiction chart.

Corey Taylor Top 10 Books“Seven Deadly Sins” is Taylor’s candid, no-holds-barred reflection on the subject and nature of sin, all illustrated with gratuitous, colourful stories from his life and times so far.  Corey, an avid reader, writer and all-round lover of words, didn’t want to pen a stock ‘autobiography’, he wanted to do something different.  He commented, “I’ve been threatening to write a book for a long time, but since every Tom, Dick and Harry writes an autobiography, I didn’t want to just do that.  My approach to writing is the same as my approach to music: I don’t want to do what everybody else is doing.”

Both of Corey’s recent UK book events at London’s HMV Garage and Birmingham’s Institute sold out in advance.  Corey spent the evening reading excerpts from his book, answering questions from the crowd, and playing an acoustic set for the lucky attendees.
