SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor underwent corrective surgery yesterday (Saturday, August 27) at the Lasik Of Nevada (formerly Lasik Nevada) to improve his eyesight. He tweeted earlier today following the procedure, "My procedure went EXCELLENT and I am now equipped with 20/10 vision! Thank you Dr. Rothman! And thanks to Lasik Of Nevada!! X-ray vision!!!"
Taylor revealed in an August 12 interview on BLINK-182 bassist Mark Hoppus' talk show on Fuse TV that he and VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan are writing songs together.
Although Taylor seemed close to becoming the new VELVET REVOLVER singer earlier this year, that never came to pass. But Taylor explained that he's still in touch with McKagan, saying, "Me and Duff will probably do some stuff later. Me and him, we really hit it off, and we're really close, and we started writing songs together, and we've got some really good stuff. So, you never know. There might be a mystery supergroup out there me and Duff and some other weird people making some weird music that people are, like, 'What?! That's them?!' So, yeah, maybe. We'll see what happens."
VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum said not long ago that the band demoed an album's worth of material with Taylor.
McKagan told MusicRadar.com that he thought Taylor was "the best voice of a new generation. The best rock 'n' voice out there. He's got a lot of positive energy. I'd be proud to do anything with him."
