COREY TAYLOR Remembers The First Time He Received A Death Threat

COREY TAYLOR Remembers The First Time He Received A Death Threat

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor, who is preparing to play at The Forum in Los Angeles on Friday (October 2) as part of the “Forum Or Against ‘Em” global streaming event, recently discussed his first memory of performing at the iconic venue. He said: “The first time I played the Forum that I remember was 2001 with SLIPKNOT. It was on the ‘Pledge Of Allegiance’ tour. It was right after 9/11, so it was a crazy, crazy time. It was the first time I got a death threat. Somebody called in to the switchboard and said, ‘You have a hero playing there tonight. His name is Corey Taylor, and he’s a dead man.’ Because legally they have to tell me these things, I played the whole show wondering if there was a laser pointer on me the entire time. And then the fire marshall threatened to shut the show down because it looked like a riot was gonna happen and the barricade was starting to break. So to keep from shutting that show down, I had everybody stop and we had a moment of silence for the people who died in 9/11. And because we did that, everyone stopped, and you could hear a pin drop. And it was at least a minute. They were able to fix the barricades, and the fire marshal was, like, ‘I’ve never seen anything like it.’ That’s my first memory of the Forum.”

Tickets for the “Forum Or Against ‘Em” pay-per-view streaming event are on sale now from watch.thecoreytaylor.com. Fans can also purchase ticket bundles that include a t-shirt, hoodie, poster, and access to watch an exclusive Taylor acoustic set. A limited number of one-on-one video chats with Corey are also available with some bundles.

“Forum Or Against ‘Em” will be a full arena production complete with a visual feast of pyrotechnics, a stacked set list featuring all tracks from Corey‘s debut solo album, “CMFT”, select fan-favorite cuts from Taylor‘s SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR catalogs, a handful of covers and an incendiary guest performance from rock n’ roll girl-gang dance squad THE CHERRY BOMBS. Special event merch and bundles will be available during the stream. Kicking off the event’s festivities will be a special pre-show event hosted by presenter/journalist Beez that will feature exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Speaking about his upcoming streaming extravaganza, Taylor said: “I’ve been saying since the beginning I’d find a way to bring this music and this band to the people. And I’m honored that The Forum let us do just that. It’s ‘CMFT’ in its entirety. It’s songs I’ve shared over the years. It’s a celebration, and I’m so stoked to party with all of you.”

In the rapidly evolving sphere of streamed events, “Forum Or Against ‘Em” is set to be an industry first, as Corey Taylor and his management team at 5B Artists & Media partner with Danny Wimmer Presents, the largest independent festival producer in the United States, to put on this one-of-a-kind, pay-per-view concert experience. In utilizing The Forum for this special steaming event, the team are not only able to put together a world class rock extravaganza with a massive arena production, in total, they are also providing work to approximately 80 event staff.

Speaking on this groundbreaking partnership, 5B Artist & Media founder and CEO Cory Brennan said: “When Corey sent me a text saying ‘Forum Or Against ‘Em’, I knew we had something truly special and unique. The Forum is one of the most iconic venues in the world and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate his debut solo album!”

“To do a rock show on this scale, with an icon like Corey Taylor — while putting some of the behind-the-scenes heroes of the concert industry back to work — is an exciting step into the future,” says Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. “We believe that pay-per-view is here to stay and we couldn’t think of anyone better to help us launch our new digital platform than Corey Taylor. He’s a global star, and his music with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR, as well as our amazing relationship with 5B, has helped to fuel DWP‘s growth over the past decade. We can’t wait to get this show started.”

“CMFT” will be released on October 2 via Roadrunner Records. Taylor recorded the effort with his band consisting of Jason Christopher on bass, Dustin Schoenhofer on drums, and Zach Throne and Christian Martucci (STONE SOUR) on guitar. The LP was completed at Kevin Churko‘s The Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX, STEEL PANTHER and STONE SOUR, among others.

SLIPKNOT recently canceled all of its previously announced summer 2020 tour dates, including the “Knotfest Roadshow”, Knotfest UK and Knotfest At Sea, due to the coronavirus pandemic which is sweeping the globe.

Here Is The First Taste Of AC/DC's New Single 'Shot In The Dark'

Here Is The First Taste Of AC/DC's New Single 'Shot In The Dark'

AC/DC has released a 30-second teaser of “Shot In The Dark”, the first single from the band’s long-awaited comeback album. The follow-up to 2014’s “Rock Or Bust” will feature AC/DC‘s 2020 lineup of Brian Johnson (vocals), Phil Rudd (drums), Cliff Williams (bass), Angus Young (guitar) and Stevie Young (guitar).

The teaser is the latest sign of activity from the legendary hard rock band, which is expected to reveal more details about the upcoming disc in the coming days. Earlier this week, a mysterious poster appeared outside Angus‘s old school in Sydney, Australia. The poster placed outside of Ashfield Boys High School reads: “Are You Ready? SYD PWR UP.” At the bottom of the advertisement, there was a link to a web site with the iconic AC/DC red neon lightning logo. On the web site itself, there are links to the AC/DC store as well as a “Power Up” e-mail sign-up, leading to speculation that the band’s long-awaited new album is called “Power Up”.

On Monday, AC/DC updated its social media with a short video clip featuring the lightning bolt alongside the sound of a guitar or musical instrument plugging into an amplifier.

Earlier in the month, images seemingly taken from a new video shoot were apparently posted on the band’s official web site before being swiftly removed. The photos, which were obtained by a Brazilian fan site, appeared to show Johnson joined by Rudd, Williams and Angus and Stevie Young. The pictures were the first of Phil and Stevie sharing a stage, adding weight to the rumor of Rudd‘s return.

Earlier in the year, prior to the coronavirus outbreak, it was rumored that AC/DC was about to announce a world stadium tour. The trek will apparently include Johnson, who was forced to leave the band mid-tour four years ago due to a dangerous level of hearing loss. He was eventually replaced on the road by GUNS N’ ROSES vocalist Axl Rose.

Two years ago, Brian and Phil, along with Angus and Stevie, were photographed outside Vancouver’s Warehouse Studios. Based on the pictures, the assumption was that AC/DC was in the midst of making — or at least planning — another album, with Rudd and Johnson both back in the lineup.

Ever since AC/DC completed the tour cycle for its 2014 album “Rock Or Bust” four years ago — a turbulent trek that weathered the forced retirement and eventual death of co-founder Malcolm Young, plus the departures of Johnson, Rudd and Williams — fans have wondered whether sole remaining founding member Angus Young would keep the band going or decide it was time for AC/DC to pack it in.

In February 2019, a photo surfaced on social media suggesting that Williams has also returned to AC/DC and will appear on the rumored comeback album.

A September 2018 report from JAM! magazine cited a “reliable source inside the AC/DC camp” as indicating that the band was recording a new LP which would utilize previously unreleased guitar tracks from Malcolm Young on all the songs.

Rudd was ousted from AC/DC when he was sentenced to eight months of home detention by a New Zealand court in 2015 after pleading guilty to charges of threatening to kill and drug possession.

Rudd, who has appeared on all but three of AC/DC‘s 18 studio albums, toured in support of his 2014 solo debut, “Head Job”. It was the release of that album that led indirectly to Rudd‘s arrest, with the drummer allegedly so angry at a personal assistant over the way the record was promoted that he threatened to have the man and his daughter killed.

ALICE IN CHAINS To Be Honored With 2020 Museum Of Pop Culture Founders Award

ALICE IN CHAINS To Be Honored With 2020 Museum Of Pop Culture Founders Award

On December 1, ALICE IN CHAINS will be presented with this year’s Museum Of Pop Culture (MoPOP) Founders Award.

This one-night-only benefit will feature performances by ALICE IN CHAINS, as well as an acclaimed lineup of guest and youth musicians who will put their own twist on some of the band’s most iconic songs.

For the first time ever, this annual event will be moving from MoPOP‘s Sky Church to an online platform where it will be accessible and open for all, giving pop culture lovers across the world an opportunity to connect and become a part of its creative community.

While this year’s Founders Award will stream for free and be open to all, like many arts organizations around the country, MoPOP has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. As a community supported non-profit museum and in-person gathering space, closing its doors was especially difficult.

All proceeds raised through Founders Award will provide relief by allowing MoPOP to continue to serve its community, reach young people, and preserve its shared pop culture history during this difficult time.

Since 2007, the Museum of Pop Culture Founders Award has celebrated artists whose noteworthy contributions continue to nurture the next generation of risk-takers.

ALICE IN CHAINS regrouped in 2006 with William DuVall joining the band, and released its third LP with DuVall in the lineup, “Rainier Fog”, in August 2018.

Over the course of its remarkable career, ALICE IN CHAINS has garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and amassed a diehard international fanbase whose members number in the millions. Their discography features some of the biggest and most important albums in rock history, including 1992’s quadruple-platinum-certified “Dirt”, 1994’s triple-platinum-certified EP “Jar Of Flies”, which was the first EP in music history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and 1995’s self-titled double-platinum-certified “Alice In Chains”, which also entered the Billboard Top 200 at No. 1. They returned in grand style in 2009 with the critically acclaimed “Black Gives Way To Blue”, which hit No. 1 across the rock and alternative charts, earned a Grammy nomination, was certified gold and hailed by Vice as “a record that’s as powerful as anything the band has done.” The band’s latest album released in 2018, “Rainier Fog”, hit No. 1 across Billboard‘s Rock, Alternative and Hard Music charts and No. 1 on the iTunes Rock album chart and earned them a Grammy nod for “Best Rock Album.” ALICE IN CHAINS remains one of the most successful and influential American rock bands of all time.
