It’s been a year since COREY TAYLOR of SLIPKNOT suddenly underwent an “unplanned spinal surgery.” Obviously, his doctors didn’t want him headbanging while he recovered . . . so he performed in a neck brace.
You’d think that SPINAL SURGERY would inspire you to give up headbanging altogether, but not for Corey. He’s excited to get back into it.
After a recent show, he said, quote, “I’m doing okay. Last night was the first real time that I tried any kind of headbanging during a show . . . I mean, I felt 43, but I did okay. I didn’t look like a pile of [crap] onstage.”
For what it’s worth, Corey DID just give up SMOKING, which he says has helped his voice.
