It’s probably safe to say Corey Taylor, the lead singer of Slipknot, has always been something of an outsider. This is a man who’s spent most of his adult life wearing a variation of terrifying masks and making earsplitting metal.
It was only a matter of time, then, before he performed Radiohead’s outsider anthem, ‘Creep’, as he did with Japanese band SiM (Silence Iz Mine) at Ozzfest in Japan this weekend. He was the at the festival for a solo acoustic performance, though teamed up with SiM singer Mah for the Radiohead song. Best bit: Mah singing “You’re so fooking special” and sounding like Liam Gallagher.
