Corey Taylor Net Worth: Corey Taylor is an American musician best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of Slipknot who has a net worth of $ 10 million. Corey Taylor was born on December 8, 1973 in Des Moines, Iowa, where he was raised by his single mother. He developed a feeling of affection for classical rock after his grandmother introduced him, showing him a collection of Elvis Presley albums from the mid-1950s to the late 1970s. Taylor also began listening to Black Sabbath at an early age, beginning with his first works. In Des Moines, Iowa, Joey Jordison, Shawn Crahan and Mick Thomson approached him to ask him to join Slipknot. He agreed to go to one of his practices, and ended up singing in front of them. Of the nine members of Slipknot, Taylor was the sixth to join the band. Taylor’s first concert with Slipknot was on August 22, 1997, which according to band members did not go well. During his first concert, Taylor did not act with a mask; however, for his second show, almost a month later, Corey wore a mask that looks like the mask of his debut album. Taylor has recorded with Slipknot since the release of their second demo album, a homonymous demo used to promote the band to potential labels and producers.
