About Corey Taylor

Seven Deadly Sins is Corey Taylor's introduction to the literary world. Taylor has not yet written another book but he has revealed that he plans to continue writing. Since Taylor's birth, his name has become one of the biggest names in music of this generation. Corey Taylor is the singer/frontman of the world-renown metal bands Slipknot and Stone Sour. While writing and recording his new 2011 album, Audio Secrecy, with Stone Sour, Taylor was also writing this novel. The book was finished in less than a month.
Corey Taylor was born in Des Moines, Iowa where he spent the first few years of his life. As a small child, he moved to Florida with his mother and sister. During his time in Florida, Taylor and his family were homeless. At the age of 11, Corey Taylor and his family moved back to Iowa, this time to a small town by the name of Waterloo. Waterloo is described by Taylor as "the backdrop of the worst moments of my life." During his time in Waterloo, Taylor is exposed to domestic violence on a daily basis, living in the trailer of his mother's friend. Corey is raped at 12 years old, and by the age of 16, he already overdosed on cocaine...twice. Corey Taylor grew up without a father; he and his father reunited in 2005 and remain good friends today. Music saved Corey Taylor from inevitable death at a young age and Taylor spends a portion of this book explaining what rescued him as well as what he was rescued from.
