SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR Has 'Quite A Few Ideas' For His Next Book

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor has told The Des Moines Register that he plans to type up a rough draft sheet of his next book to send off to his publisher soon.

"As long as I can keep getting away with it, why not?" Taylor said. "That's what it's all about for me. I've got quite a few ideas, actually."

Taylor published his third book, "You're Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look At The Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left", on July 7.

The book acts as a commentary on society and pop culture said to be in the style of the late George Carlin.

Taylor said that he learned a lot while working on his first book, 2011's "Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good", which landed at No. 26 on the New York Times "Hardcover Non-Fiction" best sellers list.

"The thing that I realized, honestly the hard way on the first book, is that you can write a sentence down and hope it's intelligent and concise, but then when I did the audio version, I realized my sentences suck," Taylor said. "They run on and I was trying to find the point inside paragraph-length sentences. As I've gone on, I've tried to make the books more conversational, like I'm talking to you. Doing the audio book for ['You're Making Me Hate You'] was a lot easier. I think I found my rhythm for it."

Taylor's second book, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven", was published in the summer of 2013 and landed at No. 23 on the New York Times "Hardcover Non-Fiction" best sellers list.
