Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman – not to mention solo performer – Corey Taylor has been in the news a lot recently in regards to his proposed collaborations. However, never before have we seen the fusion of badass and sexy like we did at this year’s Download Festival in the UK after Taylor jumped on stage with LA glam rockers Steel Panther.
Well, I suppose that’s a bit of a lie. After spending time at Brissy airport playing with a fan’s baby, we know Taylor is anything but a badass, though he is pure metal and fits in perfectly on stage with the long-haired, leather-clad, leopard-skin-uniformed Steel Panther as they played Death To All But Metal, a track Taylor actually sung on for the album.
Take a look at the clip below, caught by an onlooker’s camera; it’s a little shaky, but that doesn’t take away from the sheer awesomeness that oozes from every person on that stage.
Both Stone Sour and Slipknot will be releasing new material in the near future: Stone Sour is said to be dropping a new album, and of course Slipknot’s Antennas To Hell Best Of album is due to be released in July. Not to mention the impending Steel Panther tour kicking off here very soon.
