Publisher's Summary

Corey Taylor has seen a lot of unbelievable things. The Grammy Award-winning singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour's curiosity has drawn him into situations that would’ve sent most people screaming scared and running for the hills.
Corey’s ballsy enough to go into the darkness and deal with the consequences, though. As a result, he’s seen ghosts up close and personal, whether it be while combing through an abandoned house in his native Iowa as a child or recording an album in the fabled Houdini Hollywood Hills mansion. He’s also got the memories (and scars) to prove it. For some reason, he can’t seem to shake these spectral stories, and that brings us to this little tome right here....
At the same time, being an erudite, tattooed, modern Renaissance Man, he never bought into the whole God thing. Simply put, he’s seen ghosts, but he hasn’t seen Jesus. Corey especially can’t find a reason why people do the insane things they do in HIS name. That’s where everything really gets interesting.
His second book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, compiles Corey’s most intimate, incredible, and insane moments with the supernatural. His memories are as vivid as they are vicious. As he recounts these stories, he questions the validity of religious belief systems and 2,000-year-old dogma.
As always his rapid-fire writing, razor-sharp sense of humour, unbridled honesty, and cosy anecdotes make quite the case for his point. You might end up believing him or not. That’s up to you, of course. Either way, you’re in for a hell of ride.
The outrageous sequel to Corey Taylor's Seven Deadly Sins is now available as an audiobook.

my first audio book. And what a listen! amazing.

I've never listened to a book. nor have I managed to read a book in full since school. im 34 now and I was genuinely transfixed with this novel.
Corey's voice conveys so much passion and conviction it's hard to stop listening.
as an avid fan of his music. I put a high bar for this book to reach. And it reached it. I would recommend to anyone.

Well worth it!

I own all his books in physical forms but hearing them read from the man himself is definitely worth it!
