SLIPKNOT Frontman Covers PRINCE; Video Available

More video footage of COREY TAYLOR AND THE JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND — featuring SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor — performing at a "secret show" this past Friday, April 24 at People's Court in Des Moines, Iowa can be viewed below. It was a warm-up concert for Taylor's appearances at Rockfest in Kansas City on May 30 and Lazerfest in Des Moines on May 31.

Corey recently told Metromix about the new project: "I had wanted to start the first stoner rock disco funk band — basically a cross between SABBATH, PRINCE and ZAPPA — so I assembled a crack squad of aloof yet courageous bastards to do so. We wrote nine songs in that strain, but then we started jamming my solo material. Sounded great, and I was planning to do some solo shows anyway, so I asked JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND to back me on the shows.

"The members include Fred Missouri and Ryan Berrier of FACECAGE, Thomas Doggett of ONE NITE STAND, Tyson Leslie from too many damn bands to count, and Nik Sorak of the DEAD WAIT. The music is pure Midwest rock — THE REPLACEMENTS, SOCIAL DISTORTION, FOO FIGHTERS, etc. It is NOT heavy metal. I'm in two other bands that play that. This is rock with big chords, huge choruses and a lot of melody. No plans to record yet, but I'm working on it. Oh, and we do a cover of 'Let's Go Crazy' by PRINCE. That mixed with some Corey Taylor originals, a couple of STONE SOUR songs and a mystery cover..."
