Corey Taylor says his upcoming memoir, “Seven Deadly Sins,” actually dates back to late 2003.  In a website interview with “That Metal Show’s” Jim Florentine, the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman admits that eight years ago he was on a very dark and self-destructive path which culminated with him nearly taking his own life.  Taylor explains that the next day he realized he needed to make some changes and start owning up to who he was.

Taylor adds that it was only within the last two years that he arrived at the point where he could write the book.  In “Seven Deadly Sins” Corey shares events from his life using the religious concept as a template.  He explains that in addition to telling his own story, he’s taking the position that the “sins” are really just mistakes that can help people learn and improve who they are.  Taylor’s “Seven Deadly Sins” will be in stores on July 12th.  He’s posting his interview on in three parts.  The first installment is up now.  Part two will be posted the day the book is released, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.  Part three will follow on July 19th, also at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
