SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor played a solo concert last night (December 31, 2010) at Carol Morsani Hall at The Straz Center in Tampa, Florida as the support act for STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis.
Fan-filmed video footage of Taylor's performance can be viewed below.
Taylor's satirical holiday single, "[email protected]$", failed to stop the latest Christmas offering by Simon Cowell's current "The X Factor" winner from hitting No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart for the week before Christmas. Winner Matt Cardle's cover of BIFFY CLYRO's "Many Of Horror", renamed "When We Collide", topped the chart when it was published on December 19.
Taylor's track only hit No. 37 but Taylor said, "No. 37 is brilliant, especially after only seven days on sale. The main thing is the Teenage Cancer Trust will benefit from the money, and the publicity. That's what really matters here."
The latest bid to stop another pop artist from the Cowell factory from hitting No. 1came after a Facebook campaign helped RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's rap-metal track "Killing In The Name" defeat 2009's "The X Factor" winner in a stunning upset.
STONE SOUR is spending the holidays at home before prepping for January's "Nightmare After Christmas" tour with AVENGED SEVENFOLD.
STONE SOUR is touring behind its third album, "Audio Secrecy", released last September. The CD's latest single is "Hesitate".
