Slipknot's Corey Taylor Goes Behind The Scenes With Dr. Who

(TeamRock Radio) The BBC have released a behind-the-scenes video of Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor working on the set of Doctor Who. The episode of Doctor Who Extra follows the singer as he records vocal parts for a character called the Fisher King, who appeared on the October 3 episode of the hit sci-fi feature.

A self-confessed Doctor Who "fanboy," Taylor says his visit to the set was something of a dream come true. He adds that his favorite Doctor was Tom Baker, while his son is a huge fan of Matt Smith's Doctor.

Taylor says: "I've been a fan since I can remember. Tom was my Doctor, and the cool thing is now I've passed that on to my son, and Matt was his Doctor. Now we have that in common, so it's a pretty good feeling.

"I got to be a total fanboy for a good amount of the day. I got to see the Tardis and all kinds of other stuff behind the scenes. And then being able to flick all the buttons, it was just so rad. To be able to see everything that goes on in that ship, the way I've always imagined it as a fan is just ridiculous."

As for his part in bringing the villain to life, Taylor adds: "I've been doing some vocal stuff for the Fisher King, basically a harsh scream that I incorporate with my band Slipknot. We've been recording different tones and different levels of it to incorporate into the Fisher King's guttural roar.

"They'll probably use that and blend it with a few other things to make it completely inhuman and dark. You may think that's not a compliment, but I kind of love that." Read more and watch the video here.
