Corey Taylor Delivers Acoustic Rendition of Stone Sour’s ‘Tired’
In his over 20 years of being an active musician, Corey Taylor has recorded a prolific discography. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman played a sold out solo performance last year in London at Koko, and has released it as a full album Live In London. As part of the new album, Taylor has also released a video for his acoustic take on the Stone Sour track "Tired."
Despite it being an acoustic take on the song, Taylor keeps the track energetic and full of power. In between each strum of the guitar, you can hear fans screaming along to every word alongside him, making the stage for the performance seem much larger than just two people. Taylor's voice has huge projection, showing he's just as well suited for the more intimate concert environments as he is for the arena.
Of his performance Taylor said, "London is a city that holds a special place in my heart and I'm so happy this night was captured for you all to see. It was certainly a show I will always remember."
Fans can head over to Tayor's website to see the entire concert in London. Beyond playing fan favorites from Slipknot and Stone Sour, the concert also features a Q&A conducted with the audience, as well as covers of Grateful Dead, Van Morrison, KISS, Buzzcocks, REM and The Cure. It's got everything a fan of Corey Taylor could ever want.
