Vocalist Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) has made a version of Poison’s classic “Nothin ‘But A Good Time” in his solo shows. The video of one of the performances in Dubuque, Iowa, on April 13 drew the attention of the singer of the honored band, Bret Michaels that posted on his social networks.
Bret Michaels said: “What an incredible and wonderful thing to have the incredible Corey Taylor of Slipknot doing a cover of ‘Nothin’ But A Good Time. ” Corey and his band are incredible.”
Taylor often does solo shows to have fun when not working with Slipknot or Stone Sour. The performances usually have covers of rock classics, from Guns N ‘Roses to Van Halen.
