On Thursday 29th July at a secret location in London, Kerrang! Magazine held it’s annual awards ceremony. The festivities, themed the seven deadly sins and attended by rock royalty, were hosted by non other than Slipknot / Stone Sour front-man Corey Taylor and his good friend Scott Ian of Anthrax fame.
At the ceremony, the magazine paid tribute to Corey’s band-mate and best friend Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, who sadly passed away in May, awarding him with the golden K! for Services To Metal. Corey accepted the award on Paul’s behalf to a standing ovation.
After the awards, ITN spoke to Corey about what the award symbolised to him and how it felt to accept the award for his friend. You can see the poignant interview online now HERE.
