Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor was reportedly robbed of more than $36,000 worth of musical equipment while on tour in Europe, according to a West Des Moines police report. The Des Moines Register reports that Taylor contacted police and stated that a friend stole the gear while he and his wife were touring Europe. The couple returned home on Saturday. Among the items stolen were two Ibanez Paul Gray Signature basses. Here's what the Des Moines Register had to say:
A friend told Taylor's wife that she believed the suspect had been stealing musical equipment from the couple's West Des Moines home and storage units, according to the report. Another friend became suspicious when he heard the suspect asking to buy equipment back from a local guitar store, the report said. A third friend was able to identify some of Taylor's equipment at the guitar store, the report stated. The store's manager is storing some of the stolen items and working to track down other equipment that was already sold. The Taylors have recovered some of their stolen property, Lt. Jim Barrett of the West Des Moines Police Department said Monday afternoon. Barrett did not say how much or which items were still missing.

He has enough money from playing dress-up, so I think he's going to be ok.

anonymous 7/9/2013 9:57:42 AM

36K isn't much to Corey. He's worth millions. What does suck is that he lost Paul's bass guitars..those are irreplaceable

anonymous 7/9/2013 10:03:55 AM

His stuff got left behind, he feels it all slipping away.

anonymous 7/9/2013 10:53:55 AM

Sounds to me like this guy was just tired of hearing Stone Sour tracks.

anonymous 7/9/2013 11:29:52 AM

What's to 'get'? It's fcking spam. Some Asian is sitting in an Internet cafe and c&p as many as he can- getting those clicks from poor saps. Does this really need to be explained to you?

anonymous 7/9/2013 3:54:20 PM

Looks like the suspect really gave them the slip.

I'm sure when the cops catch the guy they're really gonna make him... SPIT IT OUT

anonymous 7/9/2013 10:47:33 PM

I imagine that the stolen gear will begin SURFACING soon

anonymous 7/10/2013 3:24:44 AM

I Hope The Equipment Isn't Tattered And Torn When They Get It back.

anonymous 7/10/2013 4:56:48 AM

It kinda sucks for dude because all he can do is file a police report, hope to recover your loses.... And WAIT AND BLEED.

genghisjohn 7/10/2013 8:34:01 AM

You can't find your equipment without Marlon Brando's eyes

anonymous 7/10/2013 10:22:49 AM

This is a perfect example of why not to have 36 thousand in music gear...

The whole thing I think is (SIC). There's just no PURITY left in this world. I hope he uses SCISSORS to turn him EYELESS and turn him into a real DISASTERPIECE.
