The Hard Word: Slipknot singer drinks own vomit

As if a broken neck wasn't enough it now appears Corey Taylor has taken a huge fall at the Atlanta's Lakewood Amphitheatre.

This comes after doctors orders for the Slipknot singer to take it easy on the headbanging.

Blabbermouth is reporting he "took a hard fall" and "couldn't walk when they picked him up", while EMTs rushed backstage to help him.

"Throughout the show he was clearly in pain from his neck but still clearly gave it all he could," one fan reported.

"The neck pain/previous injury plus the 95º (35ºC) Atlanta heat and his fully-covering outfit equals a downed frontman.

"He was shaking and looked to not be in a good way as they pulled him off."

Corey tweeted about the incident.

"ATL: haha don't worry, I'm okay! I THINK that fall was one for the ages haha! DAMN it hurt- but DAMN what a crowd! See you again soon!#CMFT"

In further bizarre antics it has also been reported that Corey Taylor freaked Marilyn Manson out when he drank his own vomit.

In an interview with Rolling Stone he revealled this juicy fact.

"I was pretty lit, pretty much for that whole tour," Taylor says. "I do remember throwing up in a cup and drinking it in front of Manson and he kind of freaked out. He didn't really know how to take it.

"And then he ran into our dressing room in tighty-whitey underwear and kind of danced for us and kind of ran back out, and we were like, 'What the fuck just happened?'"
