SDCC 2013: Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On Looking For Ghosts In ‘A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven’

Watch: Corey Taylor Talks “A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To Heaven”

Did you know Stone Sour/Slipknot’s Corey Taylor spent some time in the midst of ghost hunters, studying the supernatural? That’s the basis of his book, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way To Heaven,” where he writes about his own brushes with the unknown

During San Diego Comic-Con, Taylor sat down with MTV Geek’s Steven Smith to talk about some of these strange encounters and the fine line between skepticism and cynicism.

“It just came from several experiences I’ve had over the years,” Taylor explains, saying that the book sprang from both those researched and random moments where things just… happened that didn’t have a clear scientific rationale. Taylor doesn’t hold much stock in religion, but he says he’s had enough encounters with things he couldn’t readily explain away to immediately discount something beyond ourselves.

Back in April, Taylor released “The House of Gold and Bones,” a mutimedia story told across comics, videos, and a two-part album.

“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way To Heaven” is available now.
