Slipknot and Stone Sour fans are well aware of the talent that Corey Taylor possesses. Still, the singer-songwriter and all-around Renaissance man of rock and metal isn't necessarily known for being a prolific multi-instrumentalist. That's why watching Taylor tackle the accordion, as he did during a recent fan encounter, seems like such a spectacle.
Sure, the Slipknot vocalist supplies rhythm guitar in his solo work and on Stone Sour songs. But Taylor brandishing an instrument more closely aligned with "Weird Al" Yankovic, classical music or, gasp, polka? That sounds like it could elicit nightmare fuel. So it makes sense that Taylor's brief brush with the accordion happened at a horror convention.
