  • Corey Taylor Calls Out 'Selfish People' For Giving Him COVID-19 At His Concerts

    Corey Taylor has called out 'selfish people' at concerts, blaming them for his battle with the COVID-19 virus. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman lashed out at attendees of his recent solo summer shows, believing that some must have attended without being vaccinated, masked or properly socially distanced. 

    Taylor made the bold statement as part of a GalaxyCon virtual appearance with Billy D which is now available in full via YouTube.   

    I always try to keep my mask up the entire time. You try to trust that people are vaccinated, or they're masking up and social distancing, or at least testing negative before they go to something like that. And sometimes you just run into those selfish people that don't care about that. I think that's what happened to me — somebody came to one of my shows and was in the audience sick and probably got several people sick.

    Taylor who has been battling COVID-19 and revealed his diagnosis back on August 20th,  has confirmed that he now appears to be on the mend from the virus. 

    I just tested negative, I'm making plans to go home tomorrow. I got stuck in Denver — this whole time, I've been stuck in a fuckin' hotel room.

    Taylor has posted several updates via social media during his battle with COVID-19, suggesting that people who aren't sure about taking the vaccine, do so, because he believes it has helped to keep him from suffering the full impacts of the infection. 

    Taylor's primary act Slipknot are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their iconic second full-length Iowa this week. That record of course features a song called People = Shit which seems perfectly appropriate to revisit now, given this latest opinionated outburst from Taylor!
