December 8th has been dubbed by Wes Nessman as "the day the music died II" and of course we remember that this day for Dimebag Darrell and John Lennon, but we also celebrate the birthday of one of the greatest singer song writers of our generation, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour.

Corey Taylor fronts 2 of the biggest bands in heavy music and rock and roll and is a New York Times best selling author.

Straight up my opinion, there isn't anything that Corey Taylor can't do and I think he is the greatest singer songwriter of our generation.

He is currently touring with Stone Sour and it's looking like a brand new album fromk Slipknot will be in the works and all is right in the universe.

Happy birthday to Corey Taylor and we wish him many many more!
