A new Craigslist ad in North Jersey from "an established Slipknot tribute band" is "seeking accurate, dedicated Corey Taylor." What better person to fill the role than actual Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor?
Taylor tweeted the listing earlier today. It read: "We are an established Slipknot tribute band, dubbed the most accurate Slipknot tribute in the world. We focus on their 1999-2001 album and touring cycle, and plan on moving through the other eras."
As for requirements, it's simple. "We are in need of someone in the same or near same physical shape as Corey Taylor, 5’8. That has the same vocal range, stage experience is a must! Be able to command a crowd and act the part."
They are indeed looking for somebody to invest in the project as the ad notes "You would need to buy multiple jumpsuits, etc. a mask will be provided for now for accuracy sake."
They won't just accept anybody "Please be dedicated, if you decide to be a part of this band, we need you to give it your all for as long as the band exists."
The band signs the ad "Of The (SiC)."
This led to Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor tweeting the listing and adding the comment "If you’re interested, I’m also sitting at 166 lbs… "

All kidding aside it was nice of Taylor to give the tribute band a nice boost. Fans in the comments seem to vouch for the tribute act. Here's some footage of the tribute act right before the lockdown started. Remember shows?
