Publisher's Summary

"I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me - not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later."
The action begins in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Corey Taylor, frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, systematically set about committing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He has picked fights with douche bags openly brandishing guns. He has set himself on fire at parties and woken up in dumpsters after cocaine binges. He lost his virginity at eleven. He got rich and famous and immersed himself in booze, women, and chaos until one day he realised, suddenly, that he didn't need any of that at all.
Candid. Literate. Brilliant. Seven Deadly Sins is a brutally honest look at 'a life that could have gone horribly wrong at any turn', and the soul-searching and self-discovery it took to set it right.

Thought provoking but not for the faint hearted!

An intelligent and extremely well written personal view on the 7 deadly sins delivered in a way that only Corey Taylor could deliver himself. Interspersed and illustrated by personal experience and autobiographical anecdotes, Corey takes us through the outdated 7 deadly sins and puts his case forward convincingly as to why each is no longer a sin in these modern times. The language is strong and passionate throughout and no prisoners are taken with some graphical and disturbing tales from those harder times in Corey's life but this book is also an eye-opener to an extremely talented and gifted musician and poet who came from nothing and had no chance but somehow defied the odds.
