Corey Taylor Undergoes Double Knee Surgery

May 10, 2019

With a new Slipknot album and a big tour ahead of him, Corey Taylor has to keep himself in tip-top shape. Which is why he revealed on his social media that he is having surgery being done to both of his knees. "Surgery in both knees today- soon I'll be worth Six Million Dollars!! See you all soon! #bionic #leemajors," Taylor wrote on his instagram.

On top of the outpouring of support from fans and fellow musicians, his fiancê, Cherry Bombs dancer Alicia Dove is keeping him in high spirits with a silly pre-surgery video.

Back in 2016, Taylor underwent spinal surgery after living with an injury for a prolonged amount of time. According to Taylor, he broke his neck years before and never realized it. As a result, he had to have two discs replaced and work done to his vertebrae.

Hopefully Corey will be back in good health soon in time for Slipknot's upcoming live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 17th.
