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."

R.I.P. # 1...Joey Jordison...founding member and drummer of Slipknot, has died at the age of 46.... :( (SLIPKNOT Tribute Video added)

JJSK14Q
Joey's family released an official statement earlier today (July 27th)

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Joey Jordison, prolific drummer, musician and artist passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 26th, 2021. He was 46. Joey's death has left us with empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow. To those that knew Joey, understood his quick wit, his gentle personality, giant heart and his love for all things family and music. The family of Joey have asked that friends, fans and media understandably respect our need for privacy and peace at this incredibly difficult time. The family will hold a private funeral service and asks the media and public to respect their wishes."

Jordison was a founding member of Slipknot and was with the band from its inception in 1995 until his departure in 2013. Of the nine members, he was regarded as "Number 1." He later revealed that he suffered from transverse myelitis, a neurological disease that limited his the ability to play the drums. Not only was he one of metal's premier drummers, he was a key songwriter in the group, responsible for co-writing some of Slipknot's best-known songs. Jordison went on to perform with Scar The Martyr, The Rejects, and Sinsaenum. While he was still in Slipknot, he also played guitar in the band Murderdolls.

Slipknot and the band's current members have honored late co-founding drummer Joey Jordison by blacking out their social media. 
UPDATE: SLIPKNOT paid tribute to Joey..."Our hearts go out to Joey's family and loved ones at this time of tremendous loss. Joey Jordison's art, talent, and spirit could not be contained or be held back. Joey's impact on Slipknot, on our lives, and on the music that he loved, is incalculable. Without him there would be no us. We mourn his loss with the entire Slipknot family. We love you, Joey."  -SLIPKNOT (video below)

Condolences to Joey Jordison's family, friends, and bandmates....Bear witness to his incredible skills here (Slipknot's performance of "Psychosocial" at the 2009 Roskilde festival)

Move Over Power Rangers and X-Men! Members of Slipknot, Stone Sour, Anthrax, Slayer & Halestorm are "Thunder Force!"...well, sort of......

ThunderForceblog2021

IT'S THUNDER FORCE! We thought the Power Rangers had balls! Sink the sounds of these Wonder Powers into your ear holes: Corey Taylor, Lzzy Hale, Scott Ian from Anthrax axeman, Slayer drum beast Dave Lombardo and electric cellist Tina Guo, have teamed up for the title track to the forthcoming Netflix superhero comedy starring Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, Jason Bateman.

The song was written by Fil Eisler, Taylor and Ian. Check out the end credits of the film for proof! The movie and soundtrack premiere on April 9th.

"One of the great things about scoring movies is that I get to play in a lot of different musical sandboxes and occasionally the opportunity comes up to invite in some special guests. Anthrax and Slayer played a huge part in my childhood and I've been a fan of both Corey [Taylor] and Lzzy [Hale] for years, so when the idea of doing an orchestral metal score came up, it was a perfect excuse to go straight to the source. Why fake it when you can work with the real originals! It was honestly one of the most outright fun experiences of my scoring career so far" - Fil Eisler

"It was awesome to work on this track with Lzzy and be a part of the film Thunder Force. It is always nice to be creative and work with other artists in the community, especially during this extended time at home. I'm excited for everyone to hear the song and see the film!" - Corey Taylor

"I'm beyond excited to be included on the Thunder Force soundtrack, surrounded by friends, representing the genres I love so much, Rock and Metal! You won't know what hit you! Remember, LIGHTNING NEVER STRIKES IF YOU CAN'T FORCE THE THUNDER!" - Lzzy Hale

"I have had the privilege of working in the music industry for over 35 years. There is something incredibly exhilarating about performing on stage, specifically the edge that comes with the off the rails style of music I play. Working with Fil Eisler on Thunder Force somehow captured that same feeling. This score is a powerful musical engine. It was a pleasure to be a part of the team that helped this come to life." - Dave Lombardo

In a world where supervillains are commonplace, two estranged childhood best friends reunite after one devises a treatment that gives them powers to protect their city. Check out the trailer below!!  https://www.netflix.com/title/81079259

Check out the trippy trailer of Corey Taylor's latest movie adventure, the Halloween horror anthology "Bad Candy"

badcandyposter
Corey Taylor can't sit still and that's good for us! 2 horror movies, a solo album and possibly new Slipknot in 2021. He's been tapped to star in this latest gruesome masterpiece structured in the classic horror anthology format, which follows local Halloween stories of both myth and lessons learned in the community of New Salem. The film also stars Zach Galligan (Gremlins, Waxwork). Taylor plays a radio DJ who weaves scary stories to his listeners, perfect for Slipknots' frontman.... 

"It's a pretty cool little horror movie that has a linear story going through it, but it's really kind of made up of different short stories — almost like a 'Creepshow' kind of format, which is pretty cool. It's basically re-enactments of the stories that I'm actually telling on the radio, for the most part. It was a small-budget film done by some people who knew my manager, and who had worked with him before. And they asked if I wanted to be a part of it, and I was, like, 'Yeah, of course. I'm totally down. I've been horror fan my whole life"
-Taylor to FirstGlance Film Festivals, 

Taylor also stars in another horror film called Rucker which is currently in post-production.
