Having made his name as a metal singer, Corey Taylor is fast forging a second career as a writer, including making an impact on the New York Times bestseller list.
The Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist’s third book is boisterously entitled ‘You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look At The Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left,’ and was released on July 7 via Da Capo Press.
Taylor has been on a less than typical tour to accompany the book, and fan footage has emerged from the first few days of the tour earlier this month. It features the singer talking extensively on subjects like Craiglist, pubic hair and ghost stories at a show in Chicago’s Bottom Lounge.
In the two hour video, Taylor also performs an acoustic version of Stone Sour track ‘Bother’ amid a 45-minute musical set, and takes questions from the audience relating to his life and his first two books.
Due to swear count, the video is extremely not suitable for work.
Taylor had originally wanted to call the book ‘You’re Making Me Hate You (Or How Justin Bieber Sucked A Million Dicks To Make His Money)’, but the title was vetoed by publisher Da Capo Press.
Taylor is doing the book tour alongside a Slipknot tour of the States. He recently confirmed the identity of new Slipknot band members for the first time.
