Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has spoken out with The Mistress Carrie Podcast and revealed his current thoughts about not being able to play a live show during the coronavirus outbreak.
While he talks on the issue, the 46-year-old musician said it sucks and explained why he thinks like that. Corey also said that people don’t know what’s going on in different states.
“It sucks because on one side I feel like I’m shackled because a lot of the promoters won’t book anything – they won’t book anything that could be looked at as a risk.

Corey Taylor appears with Slipknot since 1997.
