Slipknot Singer Corey Taylor Hates Cellphone Use at Shows: 'Pay Attention, or Don't Be Here'

Buzz 13:53PM EDT

Corey Taylor will break your cellphone if he sees you using it at his show. He recently told Blabbermouth, via AltPress, a story that will surely upset smartphone-loving fans. While playing a gig, he noticed a girl constantly on her phone during Slipknot's set, so he got as near to her as possible and poured four bottles of water in her direction. "It had to have broken her phone," he said. "And then she was just bummed for the rest of the night, and I just kept shrugging at her, going, 'Hey, it's a live show. Pay attention, or don't be here.'" That might be a bit dictatorial at a public event for which the young woman paid handsomely to attend, but Taylor did not care. He did say he is a fan of Twitter, however.READ MORE
