Corey Taylor Explains How He Overcame Emotional Abuse And Neglect He Experienced In His Early Ages
In an interview with Talkulture Twitch channel, Slipknot, and Stone Sour frontman, Corey Taylor talked about his interest in writing a musical and opened up about his experiences with dealing with emotional abuse which became a source of inspiration for his music career.
The talented lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Corey Taylor was working on his solo album, ‘CMFT,’ which was released on October 2, 2020. Initially, on July 29, 2020, Taylor released the first two singles from his solo album, ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’ and ‘Black Eyes Blue.’ Taylor’s wife and the founder of Cherry Bombs, Alicia Taylor and her dance group also performed in the video clip of her husband’s single ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped.’
Most recently, on January 13, 2021, Taylor released the music video of his song named ‘Samantha’s Gone.’ In the music video, Corey Taylor guested his fellow artists, including actor Dean Cameron, Steel Panther, Ace Von Johnson, and Jonah Nimoy.
In a recent conversation on the Talkulture Twitch channel, Corey Taylor talked about his plans for his carer which included writing a musical by himself. Apparently, Corey has been toying with the idea of writing a musical inspired by the people with who he spent most of his time in his young ages. He mentioned that with those people, he experienced ‘crazy balls of emotional abuse and neglect.’
According to Taylor, they managed to survive by being together and showing each other support. He also stated that being exposed to so much new music and new literature while he was young was actually the catalyst for everything that he is right now.
Here is what Corey Taylor stated about writing a musical:
“It would be like a real musical; not ‘Spamalot’ or anything like that. ‘Cause I’ve kind of gotten in the habit of doing concept albums, obviously, so I know how to tie a story together. And I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a musical based around the people who I spent a large number of my 20s within Des Moines — like my crew, and how we all found each other, how the misfits came together and found each other, and we kind of saved each other.”
Here’s what Taylor said about his experience with emotional abuse and neglect:
“We all came from these crazy balls of emotional abuse and neglect and dealing with problems, but we didn’t know what the names of the problems were. The only thing that saved us was the fact that getting together made us feel like we weren’t alone.
And it made us feel that if we had each other as support and as friends and as somebody to talk to, maybe we could work our way through it. And in that time, I was exposed to everything — so much new music, so much different music, so much new literature, movies. It was the catalyst for everything that I am now.
So it’s an idea that I’ve been kind of tinkering with. Because I’m a scatterbrain, I don’t know if I’ll ever get it done. But it’s definitely something that I feel definitely more passionate about now than I did about 10 years ago when I thought of it.
And I’m actually getting more confident now in definitely my piano playing, which is what I would write it on. It would just be something like another passion project, just to see what would happen.”
