Roadrunner has issued that ArtistDirect.com has named Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor their Man of the Year for 2012. In the article, they say that with all the things he’s got going on, he “might just usurp Dave Grohl as the busiest man in rock music.”
They praise his live work with Slipknot this past summer, saying, “Taylor delivered every performance like it was his last, practically ripping a hole through the earth every time the band hit the stage.”
Between his best-selling book Seven Deadly Sins; the production company, Living Breathing Films, he’s co-founded with Clown; Stone Sour‘s two-part concept album, House of Gold & Bones; the comic adaptation of same; and the book he’s currently working on, ArtistDirect.com is dead on when they say, “Taylor has jumped outside of the confines of hard rock, and he’s only continuing to grow as a true presence in the worlds of music, literature, comics, and film.”
