Video: SLIPKNOT’s COREY TAYLOR Pays Tribute To PRINCE With ‘Purple Rain’ Performance

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor paid tribute to legendary songwriter, singer and producer Prince earlier tonight (Thursday, April 21) by performing a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain” as the opening song of Taylor’s solo concert at First Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Video footage of Corey’s rendition can be seen on Facebook.

Taylor has previously covered Prince’s “Little Red Corvette” during his solo performances.

Prince died earlier today (Thursday, April 21) at the age of 57.

“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57,” said Prince’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure.

Prince’s death comes only days after he said he wasn’t feeling well, causing the cancelation at least one concert in Atlanta. He eventually played a show in the city, after which his plane made an emergency landing. At the time, his publicist said that he was”fine and at home.”

Prince has won seven Grammy Awards, and he won an Oscar for the original song score to the classic film “Purple Rain”. In 2007, he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, for “The Song Of The Heart” from “Happy Feet”.
