Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor gave fans a real fright at a gig in Texas on Tuesday night when he passed out during the band's final song.

The band were performing in Dallas, Texas as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour when Taylor hit the floor whilst performing. You can see footage of the dramatic moment below, with members of Slipknot's crew picking Taylor up and carrying him off the stage.

Corey posted on Twitter yesterday (Wednesday), assuring fans that he was OK and had merely suffered a bad case of heatstroke. He said: "Hello everyone. I'm fine - just overheated in Dallas last night. Ready and waiting for Houston! Thank you to everyone for your concerns!"

Slipknot's website administrator, JoJo, told MetalTalk: "The heat in Texas was well up in the hundreds, and it was a mix of that heat, charging around the stage in that mask with stage lights, pyro etc etc.

"Hydration is the key. Thankfully he has said he is ok, and thanks everyone for their concern."

JoJo also added "Rockstars are only human".



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
