SLIPKNOT Frontman's JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND Makes L.A. Debut; Video, Review Available

September 29, 2009

SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor's new solo project, COREY TAYLOR AND THE JUNK BEER KIDNAP BAND, made its Los Angeles live debut last night (Monday, September 28) at the Key Club in Hollywood, California as the support act for STEEL PANTHER.

According to Rick Florino of ARTISTdirect, the band kicked off the festivities with a metallic cover of PRINCE's "Let's Go Crazy". "Taylor was all smiles as he riffed out the main verse, belting out the refrain with gusto and grit. 'Through Glass' saw Taylor's STONE SOUR comrades, Roy Mayorga and Shawn Economacki join him. It's one of those rare hits that gets better with each performance. 'Shine' was another fiery bruiser, and Taylor tore through it with swagger and substance.

"'Bother' brought the set into emotional territory, while allowing the singer to showcase those immense pipes. Everything ended with a pummeling and powerful cover of NINE INCH NAILS' 'Wish' that saw a shirtless Taylor thrashing about with SLIPKNOT-level intensity and something of a cathartic sensitivity. Bassist Jason Christopher kept smiling though as he seamlessly pounded away the groove, and Taylor flashed a grin and a middle finger as the song's distorted din rumbled into the distance."
