Seven Deadly Sins | [Corey Taylor]

Seven Deadly Sins

"I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me - not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later." The action begins in Iowa, where Corey Taylor committs each of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Publisher's Summary

"I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me - not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later."

The action begins in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Corey Taylor, frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, systematically set about committing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He has picked fights with douche bags openly brandishing guns. He has set himself on fire at parties and woken up in dumpsters after cocaine binges. He lost his virginity at eleven. He got rich and famous and immersed himself in booze, women, and chaos until one day he realised, suddenly, that he didn't need any of that at all.

Candid. Literate. Brilliant. Seven Deadly Sins is a brutally honest look at 'a life that could have gone horribly wrong at any turn', and the soul-searching and self-discovery it took to set it right.

    "A Rollercoaster"
    What did you love best about Seven Deadly Sins?

    This made me giddy, excited and want to throw up. From his hilarious tales of his past antics, passionate tirades and recounting of his painful childhood, Corey's reading of his book takes the audience on the ride with him. It made me guffaw out loud on public transport and made my heart hurt. For such an angry, loud personality, you can hear the hurt 11 year old in his voice as he recounts his childhood. He is the consummate performer and it all comes out in this audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, Corey can rant. Sometimes I wondered where he was going. But hey, that's what he's made his career out of, and it was entertaining none-the-lessI would honestly get this book for his gorgeous voice alone. He could make a third career just out of reading audiobooks (he rivals David Tennant as my favorite narrator).Oh, and for those not familiar with Corey's other work, it would be amiss of me not to mention the very strong language. It makes the book what it is though, and he has such an amazing way with words. I was really impressed. Really, really impressed with this book.

    "Intellligent and hilariously writen."

    Even if you are not a fan of Corey taylor; this book is sure to get you thinking, gigling and feeling better about your existence.

    Corey gives a decent re-telling of his childhood and past exploits but has written this book as more of an examination into human reactions and emotions than a simple autobiography.

    Very entertaining and thought provoking!

    "A beast unleashed"

    In this audiobook Corey Taylor, The frontman of bands Slipknot and Stone Sour, brings his views into why we should drop the old "Seven Deadly Sins", and start to use new ones. For any fan of the pre-mentioned bands, this is a must have audiobook. Not only are these his own words, but he narrates the book himself. Since downloading this book, I have listened to it twice, on my Windows Phone.

    "Thought provoking but not for the faint hearted!"

    An intelligent and extremely well written personal view on the 7 deadly sins delivered in a way that only Corey Taylor could deliver himself. Interspersed and illustrated by personal experience and autobiographical anecdotes, Corey takes us through the outdated 7 deadly sins and puts his case forward convincingly as to why each is no longer a sin in these modern times. The language is strong and passionate throughout and no prisoners are taken with some graphical and disturbing tales from those harder times in Corey's life but this book is also an eye-opener to an extremely talented and gifted musician and poet who came from nothing and had no chance but somehow defied the odds.

    "Brilliant read!"

    Ok, so i am a slipknot and stone sour fan so i may be biased - but, this book turned out to be much more than i had hope for, and then some! Corey's style is funny and inspiring, the book wanders off in tangents with funny anecdotes and also sad memories which i think he has been very brave in sharing. I thoroughly enjoyed his book and highly recommend it.

    Worth a listen, some interesting ideas and philosophies. I quite enjoyed it, however I found Corey a bit annoying. He definitely over did it with the thesaurus too!!

    "A lack of passion"

    I bought this book originally on the kindle and thought it would be awesome to have Corey tell me each of the small stories in his own way. Being a big fan of the man I thought his rants would he filled with the same fire and passion that he has in his interviews and rants that could be found on YouTube. Unfortunately he reads it like he's reading from a book, which he is, but there is none of his trademark passion that I was expecting. The stories are entertaining but would have been more so if they were told by Corey instead of read by Corey.
