(Metal Hammer) Corey Taylor says his vocal performances have improved since he had surgery on his broken neck. The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman has cut out headbanging and other onstage antics as he recovers from spinal surgery and says that has led to his vocal pitch getting better.

Taylor tells Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones' radio show Jonesy's Jukebox: "I've had to kind of reassess what I do live. The positive is that I love the challenge of it.

"Maybe I've relied on those things for too long, let's see if I can get through a show or a tour without having to go to these kind of mainstays. And the shows have been great. I've been damn near on pitch-wise, my stamina's a lot better. It's like I'm really kind of filling in all these weird blanks."

Taylor adds that he is back at about 75% in terms of full fitness and doctors hope he will be 100% recovered within a year. Read more here.
