COREY TAYLOR TALKS THE POWER OF SOBRIETY

Corey Taylor of Slipknot is one of many rock/metal musicians who has embraced sobriety, and at an event called Rock to Recovery, he called sobriety “very empowering.”

Taylor said, “Besides it being a great way for me to get together with my friends and have a good time, it’s really cool that [this event] is promoting the positivity of being sober, especially in this industry. Because a lot of people miss the mark sometimes and think that if you’re into this kind of music if you’re into this way of life, it has to be that constant party, that constant barrage of chemicals and drugs and alcohol. And people only really see the magazine side of that – they don’t see the reality of it until it’s too late.”

Taylor added that being sober “can be very empowering. It’s stronger to be that badass –to be the guy who sees it all, remembers it all, feels it all, and, at the end of the night, doesn’t need that quote-unquote party, you know.”

Taylor has been sober for eight years, and he said that the Rock to Recovery event “takes away the stigma of trying to be a better person, trying to be a stronger person…It takes away the feeling of being alone, surrounded by people who are doing the exact same stuff that you do…[It’s] a fucking hard thing to do when you’re force-fed an idea that it’s only cool if you’re fucked up. It’s not. It’s actually better once you get your head together.”
