SLIPKNOT Singer Recalls Being Left For Dead After Overdose

World Entertainment News Network reports that SLIPKNOT frontman Corey Taylor was once left for dead in a dumpster by friends who thought he'd suffered a fatal drug overdose. The rocker was only 15 years old and living in a trailer park near Waterloo, Iowa at the time. He's still shocked his pals didn't take him to a local hospital.

He says, "At a place like that, there's only two things to do, really - you take drugs, and you f**k. Crank (form of methamphetamine) was just starting, and I was a total speed freak and really into coke. I remember waking up one morning in a dumpster. This is all conjecture on my part, because I lost a couple of days, but I think I OD'd at a party.

"And, instead of taking me to a hospital, they took me somewhere and dumped me in a trash can, thinking I was dead. So I come to, I've got no shoes on, I've got no T-shirt, I've got blood on my face. I'm 12 miles from my house, and I proceeded to walk from there. The whole way home. I was like, I've gotta get out of here."
