Fan-filmed video footage of Corey Taylor’s (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) November 17 solo acoustic performance at The Republik in Honolulu, Hawaii can be seen below. Included are clips of Corey’s renditions of “King Of Pain” by THE POLICE, “Lightning Crashes” by LIVE and “Burning Love” by Elvis Presley.
In a 2012 interview, Taylor said about his appreciation for other styles of music: “I had a kid ask me the other night, ‘What kind of music is your guilty pleasure?’ I said I don’t have any. I don’t feel guilty about the music I love. If you feel guilty about something you dig, then you should stop feeling guilty about it. One of my favorite albums to this day is the tenth anniversary ensemble cast of ‘Les Miserables’, the ultimate cast recording, and it is still something I love listening to top to bottom.”
Taylor published his third book, “You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look At The Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left”, on July 7.
The book acts as a commentary on society and pop culture said to be in the style of the late George Carlin.
Taylor’s second book, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven”, was published in the summer of 2013 and landed at No. 23 on the New York Times “Hardcover Non-Fiction” best sellers list.
