SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed by Artisan News at this past Monday’s (March 17) exclusive VIP listening party for the Ronnie James Dio tribute album “This Is Your Life” and awards gala at the Avalon in Hollywood, California. Check out the chat below.

As previously reported, Taylor shows up briefly in the first trailer for “Fear Clinic”, an upcoming horror film in which Taylor makes his acting debut. The film stars Robert Englund, best known as Freddy Krueger in “A Nightmare On Elm Street”, as Dr. Andover, a doctor who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias by inducing hallucinations inside an invention he calls the Fear Chamber.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio what it was like to work with a horror icon like Englund. “One of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met,” he said. “You know, we were sitting in the makeup trailer and he’s telling me stories from the ’80s of being at the Rainbow with GUNS N’ ROSES and I’m like, ‘Please tell me more!’ You know? Sweetest dude I’ve ever met, super fun, super awesome and we had a really good time like making that stuff. And I had a handful of scenes with him and I, I had a really good time.”

In the film, Taylor will play a clinic employee named Bauer who struggles to keep things under control when all hell breaks loose. The movie will center around one traumatic event that induces phobias in a group of different people.

Also appearing in the movie, which began life in 2009 as a five-episode series for the web site FearNet.com, is Lucas Till from “X-Men: First Class”, Danielle Harris of “Halloween 4” fame and Kane Hodder, best known for playing Jason in several of the “Friday The 13th” movies.

There is no word yet on a release date for the film, although producers are aiming for Halloween 2014.

Taylor is one of a number of well-known musicians from the metal and hardcore scenes who recently joined forces with singer/bassist Mike Dean and singer/drummer Reed Mullin of hardcore punk veterans CORROSION OF CONFORMITY to create the new project TEENAGE TIME KILLER.

The instrumental parts for the upcoming debut release from TEENAGE TIME KILLER, which is named after a RUDIMENTARY PENI song, were recorded at Dave Grohl‘s (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA) Studio 606 in Northridge, California on the famous Sound City mixing board, which was the central focus of Grohl‘s acclaimed “Sound City: Real To Reel” documentary.

Taylor and the rest of SLIPKNOT are currently at the work on the band’s first studio album in six years, which should arrive in late 2014.

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor was interviewed on the August 23 edition of the “Great Day” show on Des Moines, Iowa TV station KCWI 23. You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.

Taylor‘s recently published book, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process)”, chronicles Taylor‘s experiences with the paranormal and his quest to find an explanation for such incidents. Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio that he decided to seek out answers after too many strange things happened to him and around him. “It’s amazing what people will come up with to rationalize something that can’t be rationalized,” he said. “Look, if something has a definite, real explanation, I’m the first to go, ‘Oh, OK, that makes sense.’ But some things cannot be explained, like a thermos being thrown behind me when I’m the only one awake in the house at seven in the morning. The list goes on and on for me, you know, so it’s like, it’s time for me to start kind of figuring things out for myself.”

Taylor said he sought out insight from so-called “ghost hunters,” skeptics and religious leaders while working on the book.

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven” landed at No. 23 earlier this month on the New York Times “Hardcover Non-fiction” best sellers list, three positions higher than his first memoir, 2011’s “Seven Deadly Sins”.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio recently that his next book may be a collection of columns he’s written over the past 12 years for U.K. magazine Rock Sound, while his fourth book may be his first attempt at a novel.

While STONE SOUR plans to take the rest of the year off, Taylor will perform with SLIPKNOT on October 19 in Brazil. The band will then begin putting music together for its long-awaited fifth album in early 2014.

On August 22, Andy Hall of the Des Moines, Iowa radio station Lazer 103.3 conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor. You can now watch the chat in three parts below.

Corey Taylor‘s new book, entitled “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process)”, landed at No. 23 on the New York Times “Hardcover Nonfiction” best sellers list. That’s three positions higher than his first memoir, 2011’s “Seven Deadly Sins”, which debuted on the Times list at No. 26.

The Pulse Of Radio asked Taylor if he knew just how many copies his first book actually sold. “I did all right!” he said. “I’m not sure, like, the exact number, but it’s pretty good, you know. I mean, it’s not J.K. Rowling numbers or anything like that, but you know, it was fairly decent for somebody of my stature and weight. [laughs]”

“A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven” came out on July 16 and chronicles Taylor‘s experiences with the paranormal and his quest to find an explanation for such incidents.

Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio recently that his next book may be a collection of columns he’s written over the past 12 years for U.K. magazine Rock Sound, while his fourth book may be his first attempt at a novel.

Taylor‘s only fiction output so far has been the aforementioned four-issue comic book based on “House Of Gold & Bones”.

While STONE SOUR plans to take the rest of the year off, Taylor will perform with SLIPKNOT on October 19 in Brazil. The band will then begin putting music together for its long-awaited fifth album in early 2014.
