9780091949662: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven

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 has brushed up against the supernatural world. Those close encounters impacted his 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...

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. Either way, you're in for a hell of a ride.

Corey Taylor is the lead singer of both Slipknot and Stone Sour, and the author of the New York Times bestseller Seven Deadly Sins. A native of Des Moines, Iowa, he spends his time between there and the rest of the world. TheCoreyTaylor.com

Review:

Corey is a very ambitious writer. His witty sense of humor and writing style really pulls you in with every word If you want a fun read about the paranormal and some laugh out loud moments from one of the coolest guys in music pick this one up.”
Publishers Weekly Bestseller, 7/29/13
Publishers Weekly, 8/26/2013

Taylor's enthusiasm for his topic and sheer wonder is infectious; he makes for a humble, charming host.”
San Francisco Book Review, 8/29/2013

Taylor is an engaging narrator, skewering organized religion and his own poor choices with equal fervor.”
Examiner.com, 9/10/13

Part autobiographical and part suspense novel I whole heartily suggest you pick up a copy. This is a whole scary as hell motion picture captured in the printed word.”
PopMatters.com, 9/16/13

Kirkus Reviews, 6/15/13

Fun campfire ghost stories.”
FrontRowReport.com, 6/17/13

He's done it again, folks, put out a piece of art and work that will leave you speechless and thinking harder than you have in awhile. Taylor's second book is probably more highly-anticipated than his first book and will have your hair standing on end, chills down your spine while making you laugh hysterically at some parts A well-written, in-depth, intellectual and bone-chilling piece of work that will go down in history as one of the best books written by a metal singer of all time.”
A New York Times Bestseller, 8/4/13
A Publishers Weekly Bestseller
MediaMikes.com

At several points throughout the reading of this book the hair on my arms was standing completely straight up.”
Red Carpet Crash, 7/25/13

  It's a very well written account of his experiences. Highly recommended read!”
Examiner.com, 7/19/13

[A] literary masterpiece Witty and worth the read.”
Sound Crave Magazine, 7/19/13
