COREY TAYLOR Talks About His Tattoos In Video Interview

SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor talked about some of his tattoos for PitCam Production's "Behind The Ink" segment. The clip can be viewed below.

Taylor told a Minnesota radio station that he is working on a follow-up to his best-selling 2011 memoir, "Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good". Taylor told Minneapolis radio station 93X in August that he was about a "quarter of the way" through the book, which is tentatively titled "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven".

He explained, "It's basically my experiences with the paranormal, and ghost sightings and occurrences, and I've had a lot, enough that I'm writing a damn book about it. But it's actually . . . it's about how can I believe in ghosts, and not in God? So it's a very interesting conversation. And that's kind of what I wanted to do with Seven Deadly Sins, was start a conversation and get people thinking about it."

The Pulse Of Radio asked Taylor recently if he thought there was anything from his first book that he would improve on for future ones. "When I was reading the book back, I was like, 'Some of these sentences are just terrible,'" he said. "It was like, 'Note to self: next time, just go simple.' Don't try to impress people right out of the gate, you know, 'cause I mean, there were certain sentences that took up the better part of a page and I was like, 'Really?'"

Asked if he could see himself writing a novel at some point, Taylor told 93X, "I feel like I've got a novel in me somewhere, but that's something . . . I was just talking to a buddy of mine about it, who's a writer as well, and he's nearly done with his first novel, and it's taken him 11, 12 years to do it. And I can totally understand; it's a long process. I mean, you're creating a world, you're creating something from scratch . . . But yeah, I think some day."

"Seven Deadly Sins" made the New York Times hardcover non-fiction best sellers list after it came out in July 2011, debuting at No. 26. The paperback edition, issued this year, features a bonus chapter.

Taylor promoted the book by doing a solo tour in which he combined readings, songs and discussion with the audience.
