Whilst (seemingly) being cryogenically preserved by stealth on the STONE SOUR tour bus when out on the Uproar tour, frontman Corey Taylor took some time to sit down and have a chat on the phone with THE HUFFINGTON POST about not only the recording conditions of the bands new release Audio Secrecy but also about the politcal response to the flooding in Nashville at the time and his childhood in Des Moines.

On the subject of his memories of growing up in Des Moines, Corey admits, “I don’t have a lot of good ones. It’s not about Iowa itself, it’s just about the kind of stuff that I went through when I was growing up. But there’s something special, not only about Iowa, but Des Moines, in general, for me. It was the first place that really felt like home to me. Even though I was born there, we moved around a lot when I was younger, and every time we would come back to Des Moines, it just felt like home. I’ve still got the same friends that I grew up with, I still go to the same places that I used to go to when I was younger, and it’s just a very special place to me. I’m still very proud to call Iowa home.”
