Tim Higgins of Des Moines Register is reporting that Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has rejected Internet reports declaring his death.
A prank — fueled by the Internet and radio — led many to believe that Taylor, who also fronts Stone Sour, had died this week. "First it was an overdose, than a fatal car crash," wife Scarlett Taylor said Friday night (Sept. 17).
She had already received dozens of calls from worried friends and fans, known as maggots.
The buzz began Tuesday (Sept. 14) when Chicago radio shock jock Mancow Muller started talking about the death, Taylor said. A prank web site declared Taylor's death Friday.
Even Taylor's own manager had called concerned, the family said as it took a break from pizza and chocolate cake at a party to celebrate Corey and Scarlett's son's second birthday.
Worried neighbors had feared the worst and reported seeing "not the usual crowd" entering the Taylors' tony South of Grand Avenue home Friday night. The guests were there for the toddler's party.
"I am not dead," Taylor yelled from the front patio. His father-in-law laughed and said, "Reports of his death are greatly exaggerated."
