SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor will share a very special performance of David Bowie‘s “Fashion” this Friday, February 9 during “The Howard Stern Tribute To David Bowie”. The one-of-a-kind musical tribute hosted by Bowie‘s longtime producer Tony Visconti will feature 25 unique artists interpreting the innovative and timeless music of David Bowie. “The Howard Stern Tribute To David Bowie” airs Friday, February 9 at 10:00 p.m. EST on SiriusXM‘s Howard 101.
Taylor commented on the special and Bowie‘s immense influence: “I’ve been a Bowie fan since I could walk. He is so iconic, he’s basically his own genre now. I chose ‘Fashion’ because when I first heard it, I was blown away by how much groove was in it and the attitude. This is my spin. It’ll never touch the original, but I hope you all like it.”
Taylor is set to spend 2018 on tour with STONE SOUR, which is currently traversing North America on a co-headline run with HALESTORM.
STONE SOUR is touring in support of its sixth studio effort, “Hydrograd”, which came out at the end of June and features the chart-topping rock radio hit “Song #3”. The disc was recorded at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood, California with producer Jay Ruston, who has previously worked with ANTHRAX and STEEL PANTHER. The latest track issued from the effort is “Rose Red Violent Blue”.
