Slipknot and Stone Sour singer Corey Taylor''s New York Times bestselling journey into the world of ghosts and the supernatural

Corey Taylor has seen a lot of unbelievable things.

However, many of his most incredible experiences might just shock you. For much of his life, the Grammy Award-winning singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour and New York Times bestselling author of Seven Deadly Sins has brushed up against the supernatural world. Those encounters impacted his own personal evolution just as much as headlining at Castle Donington in front of 100,000 people at Download Festival or debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.

Since growing up in Iowa, his own curiosity drew him into situations that would''ve sent most people screaming scared and running for the hills. He''s ballsy enough to go into the darkness and deal with the consequences, though. As a result, he''s seen ghosts up close and personal, whether while combing through an abandoned house in his native Iowa as a child or recording an album in the fabled Houdini Hollywood Hills mansion. He''s also got the memories (and scars) to prove it. For some reason, he can''t seem to shake these spectral stories, and that brings us to this little tome right here...

At the same time, being an erudite, tattooed, modern Renaissance Man, he was never one for Sunday Service. Simply put, he''s seen ghosts, but he hasn''t seen Jesus. Taylor especially can''t find a reason why people do the insane things they do in HIS name. That''s where everything gets really interesting.

His second book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, compiles Taylor''s most intimate, incredible, and insane moments with the supernatural. His memories are as vivid as they are vicious. As he recounts these stories, he questions the validity of religious belief systems and two-thousand-year-old dogma. As always, his rapid-fire writing, razor sharp sense of humor, unbridled honesty, and cozy anecdotes make quite the case for his point. You might end up believing him or not. That''s up to you, of course.

Either way, you''re in for a hell of a ride.
Corey Taylor is the New York Times bestselling author of Seven Deadly Sins, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, and You''re Making Me Hate You. Lead singer of rock bands Slipknot and Stone Sour, Taylor has earned eleven Platinum records, forty-three Gold records, and a Grammy. A native of Iowa, he spends his time between there...
