Corey Taylor Net Worth
Corey Taylor Net Worth: Corey Taylor is an American musician best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of Slipknot who has a net worth of $10 million dollars. Corey Taylor was born December 8, 1973 in Des Moines, Iowa where he was raised by his single mother. He developed a fond feeling toward classic rock after his grandmother introduced him to it, showing him a collection of Elvis Presley records from the mid-fifties to late seventies. Taylor also began listening to Black Sabbath at a young age, beginning with their early work. In Des Moines, Iowa, Joey Jordison, Shawn Crahan, and Mick Thomson approached him asking him to join Slipknot. He agreed to go to one of their practices, and ended up singing in front of them. Of Slipknot's nine members, Taylor was the sixth to join the band. Taylor's first gig with Slipknot was on August 22, 1997, which according to band members did not go well. During his first gig, Taylor did not perform wearing a mask; however, for his second show nearly a month later, Corey wore a mask that resembles his debut album mask. Taylor has recorded with Slipknot since the release of their second demo album, a self-titled demo used to promote the band to prospective labels and producers.
