Fans of heavy metal don’t need any introduction when it comes to Slipknot as they remain one of the most legendary bands in the genre. Last week, lead singer Corey Taylor revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19. This naturally caused many fans to be concerned. Thankfully, it seems he is doing much better now.
Taylor’s COVID-19 diagnosis happened just as he was nearing the end of his August solo. He had to back out of the remaining dates, which included an appearance at Astronomicon in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Taylor’s wife Alicia took to Twitter and informed fans that he was “doing well” as he is currently on the road to recovery and getting back to the stage once Taylor will be physically able to do so.
”Wanted to give you guys an update: Corey is doing well and thanks everyone for the sweet thoughts and messages. Ready to get him home as soon as it’s safe, so I can take care of him! He (very luckily) hasn’t lost his sense of taste or smell so I send him stupid amounts of snacks, hydration powders, and yummy desserts.”
It is certainly great that Corey Taylor is doing much better than expected and we here at Thirsty wish him a speedy recovery so that he can go back to doing what he loves as soon as possible.
