Uncompromising, unfiltered, and undeniable in any arena, Corey Taylor continues to
impact culture as the frontman for both Grammy Award-winning multi-Platinum
juggernaut Slipknot and Platinum rock force Stone Sour. Taylor is a New York Times
best-selling author as well as an actor with a myriad film and television credits.
Impacting generations of fans and peers alike, his voice has rallied millions of fans
across the globe. Globally Slipknot boast 13 Platinum and 44 Gold albums, three of
which debuted at Number One on the Billboard 200 (All Hope is Gone, .5 the Gray
Chapter, and We Are Not Your Kind).
With two Gold-certified albums and six multi-Platinum, Platinum, and Gold singles,
Stone Sour have notched five Top 10 debuts on the Billboard 200 chart.
Taylor’s first book was Seven Deadly Sins in 2011, following it up with A Funny Thing
Happened On The Way To Heaven (2013), You’re Making Me Hate You (2015), and
America 51 (2017).
Taylor also wrote a four-issue comic for Dark Horse Comics (Star Wars, Aliens, Buffy
The Vampire Slayer, Umbrella Academy) as a companion to the Stone Sour albums
House Of Gold & Bones Part 1 & Part 2 in 2013.
As an actor, Taylor’s filmography includes roles in Fear Clinic, Doctor Who, Officer
Downe, and Sharknado 4. He’s also appeared as himself on the British quiz show QI. A
BBC mainstay, QI has hosted celebrity panelists including Carrie Fisher, Daniel
Radcliffe, Russell Brand, and Trevor Noah, to name a few.
In 2020, Taylor successfully raised over $300,000 USD for Direct Relief in support of its
COVID-19 response efforts, auctioning 13 signed and handpicked guitars from his
personal collection (eBay hosted the auctions and matched the funds raised). He went
on to launch the non-profit Taylor Foundation, which aims to support and uplift military
veterans and emergency personnel living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Recently, Taylor acquired the rights to the beloved Famous Monsters brand,
relaunching its magazine, toys, horror film, and hosted festivals.
