Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor tests positive for Covid-19: 'I'm very, very sick'
Slipknot (and Stone Sour) vocalist Corey Taylor has revealed that he's currently sick and has tested positive for COVID-19. Taylor says he is vaccinated.
As such, Taylor has cancelled his scheduled appearance at the Astronomican convention this weekend in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Sharing the news via a video message (see below), Taylor had the following to say:
"I hope everybody's well. I wish I had better news. I woke up today and tested positive and I'm very, very sick. So I'm not going to be able to make it this weekend and I'm absolutely devastated. I'm so sorry. I hope everyone has a good time and I promise you I will absolutely try to get back there as soon as I can.
"I should be okay, it's the flu. I'm vaccinated, so I'm not worried. But I certainly wouldn't want to spread it to anyone else. So, everybody be safe out there and thank you so much. And I will see you again, I promise."

Cool. I hope we get to hear about every musician that has the flu forever and ever.
Glad to hear that he's "very very sick" but it's nothing to worry about because he's vaccinated? And thanks Corey for having the good sense to not spread it to anyone else, cause apparently if someone is vaccinated they can still catch COVID and pass it to others. Good to know. So the message is here is to put an experimental vaccine in your body so that you may/might have less severe COVID symptoms? Thanks for the new normal CDC & FDA
LambGoat please stop posting daily about shitty musicians testing positive for Covid. If someone dies perhaps that's noteworthy, I could care less if these people have the flu. Maybe post some real news like All Shall Perish are teasing a return!!!
This guy is my dad and his dad is my boyfriend
No joke, you know what they are playing at the Kabul airport to keep the taliban behind the wall? Slipknot because they think its against islam with demons
If you hate on Corey you must be a liberal shitbag because no one else would stoop that low
Good lord, how far we have fallen, all the hate and nastiness shown here for a fellow human, just because you don't agree with him or like his music.
Corey is one of the best vocalists of all time. Stop the hate.
If you're reading this, can you vouch for me that this is one of the most bizarre "I have covid" videos ever? What exactly is he telling us? "Covid is the flu, but get vaccinated, but you shouldn't worry, but also I'm very very sick." Idk man. Sounds like management told him to make a video the second he wakes up so he appears more sick / out of it than he is. First two Slipk or albums were (sic) tho
Glad we got to see cmft perform at sturgis this past week
If you get covid while being already vaccinated just keep it to yourself. How embarassing
can't see california without moderna pfizers eyes
Time to change your views on devil worship and reach out to Jesus Corey?
You are all f*cked and vaccinated..I think I'm gonna be sick and it's your fault..
You all have been tricked. This is obviously a deep fake, by how weird and jerky it is definitely not legitimate, Corey would never get covid and stoop to this level of bullshit
Get well soon Corey. I will be praying for you. Keep your head up. God bless my friend
May Allah (PBUH) cure Corey Taylor man in the mask
Bill Gates is so gleeful in his pink sweater he's got another one.
nothing but cope around here, folks! We love it.
Smile at Guile and check Charlie's style. Watch Ryu vs Ken and then arrest both of them.
I want Corey Taylor to be in street fighter turbo II
Trump still OH DOH DOH DOOO TWEE TWEE TWEE WOOOOOOOOOOO smile three :)
He's exactly the type of moron probably a year ago denied the existence of covid and called it a Plandemic. Of these kinds of people I know many.
"It's the flu." "I'm vaccinated." Sure you are, dumb ass. Enjoy that raw dog COVID.
Well that's what happens when you inject poison into your body, Corey. You're gonna get sick. You followed that demon Fauci and now you're paying the price in your body. Hope ya get better, and if you're smart, speak out against the jab like Eric Clapton. Your ability to make a living will depend on it. Plus your unfounded Trump hate did you no favors. Take this as a wake up call. Don't touch the Lord's anointed. You won't escape unscathed.
Hope you get better corey. And btw people on here are fukn WEIRD. And I've grown up around crackheads so thats sayin something...smh
Further proving ppl don't know shit and continue to put others in danger with there own stupidity. Man thinks a vaccine means he can go on tour surround himself with hundreds of ppl wearing no protection then acts shocked when he gets the bug. Sorry man your a f*ckin idiot along with the rest of the ppl who are as selfish as you
it's worth it if pharma companies stock went up.
Anti maskers are all posers who love nickel back.
Corey is an addict. COVID ain't the first needle he's jabbed into his arm, won't be his last by a long shot. I don't even understand how you can consider a guy who screams into a mic a musician. He's not. At best he's a performer.
Hate to see so many haters bashin the man on this article. This guy has more talent in one pinky finger than all the haters on this page. People are such classless d bag diks these days. If you aint a maggot go put your head in the toilet and make it stay there. MAGGOTS FOREVER!!!
Yeah maggots forever! Tripp pants, eye liner! Spikey bracelets! Hot topic! Trenchcoats! Acting like I'm still literally in 7th grade! This stuff is so cool and edgy! ALL HAIL THE PINKY FINGER OF DICKNOT
You're all a bunch of idiots. Love Corey's music, and he's an idiot too.
Maggots are selfish pricks. I dare you to name me a maggot who went to Afghanistan to fight for his country. Maggots can't spell patriot.
Corey has always had good vocals but he's a bitch
^ your a bitch, shut the f*ck up Trump voter
He's faking it because he's on a binge right now, watch
If he took the vaccine, Covid should be the least of his worries. It is said that up to 73% of people who got the jab will either be dead of suffering from terrible auto immune and other illnesses within 3 years. Waiting for it!
I can't wait for the new Street Fighter with Corey Taylor as a playable character. They are saying you can play as him masked or maskless, two different modes of play. So stoked!
If he dies that will be another Slipknot member in the same month. After that their record sales will shoot through the roof
what's the point of the vaccine exactly lol
if Corey dies how would you react? I want to hear the truth
DUN NAN NAN, NA NA DUN NAN NAN NA, DUN NAN NA DUN NAN NAN, NA NA DUN BOOT DOO DA BOOT DO DA BUCHA BUCHA BUCHA BUCHA -Nirvana
I would worry about that collasal cold sore on that lip 😬🤣
Dude said he woke up and tested positive, then says he's vaccinated, and then says it's just the flu. Come on man, we already know that vaccines don't work!
Leaky vaccine making covid mutate inside his body. The vaccinated will keep passing super bugs back and forth.
U all need to sit the f*ck down shut the f*ck up and realize what is going on in this world, PEOPLE GET SICK f*ck!
I love boofing Ivermectin, it is a huge rush and when I do I dont have to worry about wearing a mask
Joey taking corey with him to the grave hopefully
People who used to idolize school shooters are not stoked
^literally. The gimmick of slipknot has always catered to the troglodyte elements of metal sub culture. It's such a tired f*cking racket.
Angry little boys, angry little man boys. Girls with daddy issues, Jocks and cheerleaders who have a bad day and only listen to "mainstream hard rock and metal when they have a bad day", people in rural areas who have pent up rage from the ills of capitalism but are uneducated and dont realize why, and every past, present, and future school shooter are not stoked, they are too lazy to access metal and hardcore that is made with intellect and purpose, so slipknot is all they have
I'm worried he will be on a ventilator, if he is on a ventilator his chances will be slim to one, and his voice will get so f*cked
" people in rural areas who have pent up rage from the ills of capitalism but are uneducated and dont realize" Damn dude, I think you nailed it there. woke as f*ck. Write a treatise man
You diagnosed the problem but how are you going yo implement a solution? They've been so confused and ironically sent in a spiral by big daddy Trump, how you gonna fix it?
I sat through a Stone Sour set once and it was a truly awful experience
Angry little boys, angry little man boys. Girls with daddy issues, Jocks and cheerleaders who have a bad day and only listen to "mainstream hard rock and metal when they have a bad day", people in rural areas who have pent up rage from the ills of capitalism but are uneducated and dont realize why, and every past, present, and future school shooter are not stoked, they are too lazy to access metal and hardcore that is made with intellect and purpose, so slipknot is all they have Damn, you on fire
Trump never cared about you flyover state bumbling idiots.
So is it COVID? Or the Flu??? Choose your own adventure ;)
Most of y'all showing hate on this feel the same way about yourselves grow the f*ck up. Get well soon Corey.
