Slipknot / Stone Sour Singer Corey Taylor Recovers Most of His Stolen Equipment

Mary Ouellette,

The week began on a bad note for Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor, learning that he had been robbed of a significant amount of equipment from his home while he was away on tour. But the week will end with the rocker certainly in a better state as he now proclaims that a majority of the equipment taken has been recovered.

It was estimated that $36,000 worth of equipment was taken from Taylor residence and storage lockers by someone that the singer knew. Among the items taken were Paul Gray basses, but the vocalist later clarified that the bases stolen were not the late musician’s personal basses but rather Paul Gray signature basses from Ibanez.

Luckily for Taylor, several witnesses had clues as to who the culprit was and a local guitar shop was handy in tracking down some of the missing equipment and holding onto other pieces that the robber had sold.

In a Twitter posting, Taylor explained:

At present, the ever-busy Taylor is back in the States promoting his new book, ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven.’ The book, which finds Taylor exploring the existence of spirits and otherworldly encounters he’s had in his life, arrives in bookstores next week via Da Capo Press. Orders are currently being taken here.
