Corey Taylor Winner of the Metal Hammer Legend Award

Monday, September 17th, 2012

I’ve crossed paths with Corey Taylor a hand full of times in my life. The biggest was when I filmed interview footage of them at Blackbird studios in Nashville while Stone Sour was recording Audio Secrecy. Being from Iowa and being active in the music scene you tend to bump into the Slipknot cats from time to time. So I have to say on a personal level these guys are all champs. I’ve never had a bad experience with any of them, as a matter of fact Corey made sure that we got our interview footage with him at Namm just because we were from Iowa. (Which was actually hooked up by his wife who talked to us when everyone else told us to talk to the hand) Jim Root used to play with some other bands before Slipknot got picked up and was always a cool cat, and from my experience kind of a gear nerd!!

So, Corey Taylor won the Metal Hammer Legend award in Berlin and was presented by U.D.O singer Udo Dirkschneider. Which is pretty fitting since he and his band mates have been whooping ass in 2 bands for over a decade!!
