Slipknot singer Corey Taylor final in-store for Borders Books in Chicago











Corey Taylor, lead singer of Slipknot, signed copies of The Seven Deadly Sins in addition to reading from his book and doing an acoustic guitar performance. Fans waited in line for hours for the singer and remained for the full 3 hours of his appearance.
Sadly, this marked Borders Books last in-store appearance as the store chain did not find a buyer and will be liquidated.
