UPDATE! Corey Taylor is "out of the woods" while battling coronavirus. In a Twitter video Monday, the Slipknot frontman said while he's still testing positive, his fever and aches are gone. He said it shouldn't be too much longer before he tests negative. The Stone Sour frontman said he truly believes the vaccine helped him get better from the worst sickness he has ever experienced. Taylor said he "shutters" to think how bad he would have felt if he weren't vaccinated. He told his fans they should roll up their sleeves and get the jab.
Corey Taylor tested positive for Covid, is very sick and is crushed that he has had to scrap his planned appearance at this weekend's 'Astronomicon 4' convention in Ann Arbor, MI. Corey had previously been fully vaccinated and just wrapped up the second leg of his solo tour (August 19th) in Denver, CO. He was one of the first established artists to take to the road amid the COVID-19 pandemic. For that first leg of the trek he implemented a blanket safety policy that imposed specific safety protocols throughout the tour regardless of local and state guidelines. Well wishes Ass Kicker!He shared this video message via the event's Facebook page...
"I wish I had better news. I woke up today and tested positive, and I'm very, very sick. So I'm not gonna be able to make it this weekend. And I am absolutely devastated. I am so sorry. I hope everyone has a good time, and I promise you I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can. I should be okay — it's the flu. I'm vaccinated, so I'm not worried. But I certainly wouldn't want to spread it to anyone else. So, everybody be safe out there. And thank you so much. And I will see you again, I promise."
Just a little update on how I’m recovering. Thanks so much to everyone who sent their best wishes and to friends and family who reached out. pic.twitter.com/haWwWZbdN3— SHRED DJENT REDEMPTION (@CoreyTaylorRock) August 23, 2021
