Although the ‘Knot are made up of 9 masked maniacs, it’s arguably Corey Taylor who has become the face of the band, the showman, the spokesperson and the larger than life character the metal world needs.

With all due respect to Shawn Crahan, Mick Thompson and Jim Root etc, Slipknot would be rudderless in the eyes of the majority without Corey Taylor leading the charge. He’s positioned himself as the centrepiece of the band – despite strong competition from the endlessly creative mind of Shawn Crahan – and his absence would be tangible.

While Slipknot survived the tragic loss of Paul Grey and the seemingly sudden departure of Joey Jordison, could they survive the loss of their talismanic frontman? We think not!
