Corey Taylor zollt Prince Tribut

Die ganze Musikwelt ist von dem Tod des Musikers PRINCE erschüttert, nun zollt auch Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) der Ikone Tribut.

Kurz nachdem der Tod von PRINCE bekannt wurde, trat COREY TAYLOR in Minneapolis' First Avenue auf, einem Ort, an dem PRINCE einen seiner ersten Auftritte hatte. Doch anstatt die Show "normal" zu beginnen, singt Corey eine herzzerreißende Version von "Purple Rain". Doch seht selbst:


Auf seiner Facebookseite äußert sich Corey Taylor wie folgt:

"Today, the world lost a creative icon.
"Michelle and I join millions of fans from around the world in mourning the sudden death of Prince. Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent. As one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time, Prince did it all. Funk. R&B. Rock and roll. He was a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer.
A strong spirit transcends rules," Prince once said - and nobody's spirit was stronger, bolder, or more creative. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his band, and all who loved him."
