Slipknot’s Corey Taylor to appear on ‘QI’

The Slipknot frontman is guesting on the BBC quiz show

Corey Taylor will appear as a guest in an upcoming episode of BBC quiz show QI later this year.

The American musician, best known for being the lead singer and lyricist of Slipknot and Stone Sour, will join Aisling Bea, Alan Davies and Ross Noble, as well as host Sandi Toksvig on the series.

Comedian Aisling Bea posted an photo of herself posing with the episode’s guests on her Twitter page, along with the caption: “Dear Slipknot fans, we’ve taken your leader and removed his mask.”

In a second photo, Bea claims that she and Toksvig are planning to join Slipknot as members.

Taylor has previously said he is a fan of the long-running BBC Two panel show, saying in 2013 that his new resolutions were to “quit smoking, get on QI, bring the world to its knees.”

The singer has also appeared on the ‘No Such Thing As A Fish’ podcast, which is hosted by QI researchers.

Last month, Taylor hinted that Slipknot may change their sound in order to continue moving forward as a band.

Slipknot will tour with Marilyn Manson this summer in North America. The two acts will team up for a co-headline stint later this year, with Of Mice & Men announced as supports.

The BBC have not yet confirmed the start date for the next series of QI.
