COREY TAYLOR Interviewed On 'Ground Zero' (Audio)

Clyde Lewis of the "Ground Zero" radio show recently conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor. You can now listen to the chat below.

As previously reported, Taylor's new book, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process)", landed at No. 23 this week on the New York Times "Hardcover Nonfiction" best sellers list. That's three positions higher than his first memoir, 2011's "Seven Deadly Sins", which debuted on the Times list at No. 26.

The Pulse Of Radio asked Taylor if he knew just how many copies his first book actually sold. "I did all right!" he said. "I'm not sure, like, the exact number, but it's pretty good, you know. I mean, it's not J.K. Rowling numbers or anything like that, but you know, it was fairly decent for somebody of my stature and weight. [laughs]"

"A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven" came out on July 16 and chronicles Taylor's experiences with the paranormal and his quest to find an explanation for such incidents.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio recently that his next book may be a collection of columns he's written over the past 12 years for U.K. magazine Rock Sound, while his fourth book may be his first attempt at a novel.

Taylor's only fiction output so far has been the aforementioned four-issue comic book based on "House Of Gold & Bones".

While STONE SOUR plans to take the rest of the year off, Taylor will perform with SLIPKNOT on October 19 in Brazil. The band will then begin putting music together for its long-awaited fifth album in early 2014.
