Talking with World Entertainment News Network, Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor gives an insight into his life as a teenager, living in a trailer park near Waterloo, Iowa:

“At a place like that, there's only two things to do, really – you take drugs, and you f**k. Crank (form of methamphetamine) was just starting, and I was a total speed freak and really into coke. I remember waking up one morning in a dumpster. This is all conjecture on my part, because I lost a couple of days, but I think I OD'd at a party.

“And, instead of taking me to a hospital, they took me somewhere and dumped me in a trash can, thinking I was dead. So I come to, I've got no shoes on, I've got no T-shirt, I've got blood on my face. I'm 12 miles from my house, and I proceeded to walk from there. The whole way home. I was like, I've gotta get out of here.”
