Seven Deadly Sins, Corey Taylor

Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the argument between born bad and damaged good, by Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor. Front man of Slipknot and Stone Sour. And literary genius! Oh yes, this man, who wears masks and outfits to play on stage to hundreds of thousands of people, is an author. And a damn good one at that! His book, Seven Deadly Skins: Settling the argument between born bad and damaged good, is a favourite of mine. Released in the summer of 2011, I was lucky enough to grab one of the few tickets up for grabs for an 'Evening with Corey Taylor'. This evening, which just so happens to be one of the best events I have ever been to and one I will always remember, included Corey reading from his book, a question and answer with everyone there (I asked if he loves tea, which he does, and what his favourite tattoo is, which turns out to be his tattoo of late band member Paul Gray) and an acoustic set! Oh what I would do to go back to that night....

Seven Deadly Sins looks into the so called seven deadly sins we grow up to learn and avoid (or for some, chase with wild abandonment) and completely dissects them. Corey looks at each of these seven deadly sins and talks about whether they are in fact bad for us, or whether some of us are just destined to fulfill each and every one. It's an incredibly insightful look in to both the way we live our lives, as well as an in-depth background in to Corey's own life and experiences. It's one of my all time favourite books and one I would really recommend, to anyone and everyone!
