Corey Taylor performs “Fashion” for The Howard Stern Tribute To David Bowie

TRIBUTE SPECIAL SET TO PREMIERE FEBRUARY 9TH
AT 10:00PM EST ON SIRIUS XM’S HOWARD 101

FEBRUARY 6, 2018 – Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor will share a very special performance of David Bowie’s “Fashion” this Friday, February 9th during The Howard Stern Tribute to David Bowie.  The one-of-a-kind musical tribute hosted by his longtime producer Tony Visconti will feature 25 unique artists interpreting the innovative and timeless music of David Bowie.  The Howard Stern Tribute to David Bowie airs Friday, February 9th at 10:00PM EST on SiriusXM’s Howard 101.  For more details please visit http://strn.it/igofza.

Taylor commented on the special and Bowie’s immense influence stating, “I’ve been a Bowie fan since I could walk. He is so iconic, he’s basically his own genre now. I chose ‘Fashion’ because when I first heard it, I was blown away by how much groove was in it and the attitude. This is my spin. It’ll never touch the original, but I hope you all like it.”


Taylor is set to spend 2018 on tour with Stone Sour, who are currently traversing North America on a co-headline run alongside Halestorm (see attached itinerary). The tour finds Stone Sour celebrating their new album HYDROGRAD, which arrived earlier this year debuting at #1 on three Billboard charts: “Top Current Albums,” “Top Rock Albums,” and “Top Hard Rock Albums.”  HYDROGRAD also debuted at #8 on the “Billboard 200,” marking the band’s fifth consecutive Top 10 debut on that chart.  Furthermore, HYDROGRAD debuted at #5 in the U.K. (the band’s highest debut ever in that country), #2 in Australia (highest debut ever), and was Top 5 in Germany, Japan, and Switzerland. The album features, “Rose Red Violent Blue (This Song Is Dumb & So Am I),” which is closing in on Top 10 at Active Rock Radio, and the smash “Song #3”, which was #1 for five straight weeks on U.S. Active Rock Radio chart.  For tour dates and more information on Stone Sour please visit www.stonesour.com.

2017 was a whirlwind year for Taylor who released his new book, America 51: A Probe into the Realities That Are Hiding Inside “The Greatest Country in the World, in which he examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to modern family dynamics, millennials, and “man buns” through his signature humorous lens.  Furthermore, Taylor also released, “Live In London,” capturing an intimate sold-out performance at London’s Koko. The full concert, which is available at www.thecoreytaylor.com, sees Taylor playing through fan favorites from both Slipknot and Stone Sour along with a Q&A and covers of artists such as Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, Kiss, Buzzcocks, REM and The Cure.
