Corey Taylor may be outspoken and prone to rubbing some people the wrong way but you can’t deny that he goes out of his way for fans.
The Slipknot frontman is currently on tour with his other band Stone Sour but he took time out while in San Diego to go and visit a fan who is paralysed in hospital.
Taylor fan Aaron was struck by a pickup truck leaving him paralysed from the waist down. He’s been a huge fan of all Taylor’s endeavours and has met him multiple times in the past so his Mum and a local radio station reached out to Taylor to come and visit Aaron in hospital.
Without Aaron knowing, Taylor turned up at the hospital rendering him speechless.
He spent nearly an hour chatting with Aaron and the entire visit was caught on camera with the pair getting along swimmingly. Aaron even got to interview the frontman, asking him everything he ever wanted to know.
“We can’t thank Corey Taylor enough to take time out of his busy day on tour with Stone Sour to visit Aaron,” his Step-Dad wrote on YouTube.
Aaron’s family has set up a GoFundMe page, aiming to raise $5,000 to help with the financial strain of the accident. They have already raised close to $4,000.
