Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) Teases Warped Tour Performance

  Slipknot and Stone Sour may be a bit removed from the Vans Warped Tour scene, but it appears frontman Corey Taylor may dip his toes back in…if only for a performance or two. However, it would not be with either of his bands. If he were to join the fold, it would be with Carnifex, who are performing the entire tour. The group tweeted him directly and asked if he would join them on stage for a rendition of Slipknot’s “Heretic Anthem.” Taylor gave a response that made it…

LIVE REVIEW: Prepare For Hell Tour – Slipknot w/ KoRn (Capital FM Arena) Nottingham, UK

Its not quite so long since KoRn have visited (2011 if I remember rightly), but, their absence…
