The fans ultimately had the final say and in the end it's fitting that the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods Awards spread the wealth when it came to the night's top categories. Deftones, Corey Taylor and Slipknot were among the evening's top honorees.
Corey Taylor enjoyed success with his 'Seven Deadly Sins' book in 2012 and somehow amidst all of his Stone Sour and Slipknot's plans, he's managed to write and complete his second book. 'Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With the Paranormal and Stigmatized Zealots and Cynics in the Process)' is on schedule for a July 16 release through Da Cappo Press.
Slipknot percussionist Joey Jordison has often found projects to keep him busy during the band's downtime, and it looks as though he's finding another creative outlet to keep him occupied until the band regroups in the studio again.
It's been a busy year for Corey Taylor, who not only is promoting Stone Sour's upcoming 'House of Gold & Bones Part 2' album, but has also enjoyed some extra recognition for his collaboration with Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen and Scott Reeder on the single 'From Can to Can't' that's part of the soundtrack for Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary. Loudwire recently spoke with Taylor, who revealed that he's thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Grohl and still has a few names on his dream collaborator list.
Just because you're in a seriously pissed off metal band with songs that contain lyrics such as "I want to slit your throat and f--- the wound" doesn't necessarily mean you don't have a soft side. Slipknot percussionist / backup vocalist Shawn 'Clown' Crahan has a son who is also in a band, and as Clown witnessed his spawn record vocals, the mad carnival villain couldn't help but shed a prideful tear.
