Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Hey, guys! So, this is my first Waiting on Wednesday because I’ve been oh so nice and dumped all of the last of the last two we’ve had on my blogging partner. Anyways, the book I have chosen this week is...
Seven Deadly Sins by Corey Taylor
Publication date: July 12th, 2011 (Da Capo Press)
Corey Taylor is known as the singer of both Slipknot and Stone Sour. This book should stir curiosity among Taylor’s fans and possibly non-fans as he speaks of his life and the “sins” he has committed. Here’s what Goodreads has to say:
For the first time, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor speaks directly to his fans and shares his worldview about life as a sinner. And Taylor knows how to sin.
As a small-town hero in the early '90s, he threw himself into a fierce-drinking, drug-abusing, hard-loving, live-for-the moment life. Soon Taylor's music exploded, and he found himself rich, wanted, and on the road. His new and ever-more extreme lifestyle had an unexpected effect, however; for the first time, he began to actively think about what it meant to sin and whether sinning could--or should--be recast in a different light.
Seven Deadly Sins is Taylor's personal story, but it's also a larger discussion of what it means to be seen as either a "good" person or a "bad" one. Yes, Corey Taylor has broken the law and hurt people, but, if sin is what makes us human, how wrong can it be?
