Slipknot's Corey Taylor Reveals His Original Career Choice
He says in an artist spotlight video: "Music is everything. Music is so important to me that if I didn't have it, I wouldn't be the same person. For the longest time I didn't know that I wanted to do music. I wanted to be a history teacher, but I just kept coming back to music.
"Music is probably the last vital emotion that we all have in common. It doesn't even have to be the same style, but it's the one thing that ties us all together."
And the vocalist adds that playing live is the ultimate high for him as a musician. He says: "Putting the stuff on, touching base with all the guys, coming together for the huddle, going backstage and waiting for the audience to pop - that gets the adrenaline going like nobody's business."
