Watch Slipknot’s Corey Taylor cover Guns N’ Roses’ ‘It’s So Easy’

The musician is currently out on a solo tour

Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor has covered Guns N’ Roses‘ track ‘It’s So Easy’ – watch the clip below.

The metal musician, who is set to release a new album with Slipknot, was performing a solo show under his Corey Taylor & Friends name last weekend.

During his appearance at Green Bay Distillery in Wisconsin on Sunday (April 14), Taylor offered up a rendition of Axl Rose and co’s first single ‘It’s So Easy’. The track, which appears on their debut LP ‘Appetite for Destruction’, was originally released in 1987.

Taylor’s version stayed relatively faithful to the original song, with his guitarist tearing through its solo as the song drew to an end.

Elsewhere in the show, the band took on ‘Hot For Teacher’ by Van Halen. Taylor freed himself from the restraints of his guitar, roaming the front section of the stage as dance group Cherry Bombs – featuring the singer’s fiancee – performed behind.

Corey Taylor’s solo stint is due to conclude at the end of this month, ahead of Slipknot hitting the road in support of their new record. The masked icons’ tour will include a headline performance at Download Festival in June.

Slipknot’s highly-anticipated new album will arrive on August 9.

Meanwhile, percussionist Chris Fehn recently departed the group amid legal issues with his bandmates. Former member Anders Colsefni later dismissed rumours that he could step in as a replacement.
