I hope you all had a safe & happy Thanksgiving and that you ate lots of bird. Three days ago was my dads birthday and hes been gone for a minute so I wanted to give a shout out to him.</p> <div>Ive put this up before and youll see me post occasionally but Im opening up a studio in Des Moines for like minded people. By cleaning out all my storage units Ive gotten to everything that I need to make the studio work. In the process Ive had to get rid of a lot of stuff and its all personal items that Ive collected over my career. Today I will be putting up a bunch of new drums heads along with other items I have found. I also have a small quantity of my books left and there will also be more fan packages going up on site as well.</div> <div></div> <div><strong>Go check out this link or don<a href="http://ow.ly/rqeGO">http://ow.ly/rqeGO</a></strong></div> <div></div> <div>Hope all is well.

I thought Id bring you up to date on some exciting events. Ive been using my time off from touring with Slipknot to do something that Ive been meaning to do for the last 7 years; which is get my recording studio built. It will be finished and up and running by January 1st, 2014. Along with recording equipment the studio will have a photography area for developing film and other artistic areas for bands and artists to come in and work with. It will be a closed studio for those who are like-minded.</p> <div>Ive taken natural steps and have been going through all the items my family has stored over the years. Ive come across more things that Ive collected from Slipknot than I can house anymore. Many items have been brought to good will and local establishments that help people. Youve also seen a lot of these personal items on my website and I will continue to post about them. Im doing this in order to make room in the establishment and make a one-stop shop to get music and art done. I cant believe Ive acquired this much stuff over the span of my career but I guess thats what happens. I will be getting rid of a lot of rare Slipknot items that I have. I want it to go to the right people and I will put up all kinds of authentic items from my past. I want to share it with the people who really love it. When you turn 44 you just need to start over and make room for your new baboon head.</div> <div></div> <div>In addition, I wanted to let you know that there is a section in my online store for my wifes Sterling Silver fine jewelry line. We make a lot of art together in our lives everyday. We are currently building her website which will be coming soon.</div> <div></div> <div>I hope everyone had a safe and horrifying Halloween. Thanks for everything as always. Looking forward to meeting all sorts of new musicians and faces come the first of the year. Stay (sic).</div> <div></div> <div>Cheers,</div> <div>Clown</div> <div></div> <div><strong><a href="http://www.apocalypticnightmare.com" target="_self">http://www.apocalypticnightmare.com</a></strong></div> <div></div> <p>From <a href="http://www.slipknot1.com/">www.slipknot1.com</a></p>Wed, 06 Nov 2013 11:44:00 -0800http://www.slipknot1.com/news/188353Video Interview: Corey Taylor Discusses Religion, the Paranormal and More<p><strong>Read the full interview on <a href="http://news.radio.com/2013/10/09/interview-corey-taylor-discusses-religion-the-paranormal-and-pro-toolbags/" target="_blank">Radio.com</a></strong></p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/q-c0qxnNbqU" width="640"></iframe></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.slipknot1.com/">www.slipknot1.com</a></p>Tue, 05 Nov 2013 10:00:00 -0800http://www.slipknot1.com/news/188283Pro-Shot Footage from Monsters of Rock 2013<p>If you werent in So Paulo, Brazil this past weekend to watch Slipknot perform live, you can watch video footage from Monsters of Rock 2013 below.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/a0n7vCUt9eA" width="640"></iframe></p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/uD4-vOfrxJ4" width="640"></iframe></p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="480" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/0Ipa58COrWQ" width="640"></iframe></p> <p>From <a href="http://www.slipknot1.com/">www.slipknot1.com</a></p>Mon, 21 Oct 2013 16:52:00 -0700http://www.slipknot1.com/news/185423Joey Jordison/Scar The Martyr Joining Rob Zombie and Korn on Tour<br /><img src="http://groundctrl.s3.amazonaws.com/clients/slipknot/media/03/09/images/assets/medium.TMmXuQhYAY1o0YaoHQ_E8n7Bx7K9DuwgXlvJuceqn9E.jpg" /><br /><p></p> <div>Joey / Scar The Martyr will be joining Rob Zombie and Korn on their upcoming tour, from November 3rd to 27th.
