Corey Taylor has seen a lot of unbelievable things. The Grammy Award-winning singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour's curiosity has drawn him into situations that would've sent most people screaming scared and running for the hills.
Corey's ballsy enough to go into the darkness and deal with the consequences, though. As a result, he's seen ghosts up close and personal, whether it be while combing through an abandoned house in his native Iowa as a child or recording an album in the fabled Houdini Hollywood Hills mansion. He's also got the memories (and scars) to prove it. For some reason, he can't seem to shake these spectral stories, and that brings us to this little tome right here....
At the same time, being an erudite, tattooed, modern Renaissance Man, he never bought into the whole God thing. Simply put, he's seen ghosts, but he hasn't seen Jesus. Corey especially can't find a reason why people do the insane things they do in HIS name. That's where everything really gets interesting.
His second book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, compiles Corey's most intimate, incredible, and insane moments with the supernatural. His memories are as vivid as they are vicious. As he recounts these stories, he questions the validity of religious belief systems and 2,000-year-old dogma.
As always his rapid-fire writing, razor-sharp sense of humour, unbridled honesty, and cosy anecdotes make quite the case for his point. You might end up believing him or not. That's up to you, of course. Either way, you're in for a hell of ride.
The outrageous sequel to Corey Taylor's Seven Deadly Sins is now available as an audiobook.

This is the second audible book that I have purchased from Corey Taylor. As a narrator, he is easy to listen to and very engaging. The book is very funny, at times very Gripping and a bit dark. at times very light hearted and warm. Its a very well balanced book, Corey is very open about his experiences and is on a journey towards understanding, rather than being preachy and pushy with his beliefs (or lack of).
amazing if you belive in ghost is a good book and deffo for Corey Taylor fans
I found myself unable to stop listening as Corey's views on this fascinating subject make a lot of sense. Certainly stirred the pot with regard to organised religion. Thumbs up!!!!!
For anyone like me who is a big fan of Corey and of the Paranormal. This a fantastic read. Great balance of "ghost stories, theory behind them and other subjects such as religion with a wonderful Corey Taylor twist to it. Love the book!!
This book is a very thought provoking one as it allows you to decide wether you believe in the experiences he is on about or wether you are just interested in more of Corey's life, a great follow up from the seven deadly sins
The book is read by Corey Taylor himself, should I say anything else? Well, back to asked question. Definitely. Of course, if you insist on things like turning pages and "real" psysical feeling in your hands, nothing can beat the classic book.
Well the book is basically all about Corey. And yes, he is my favourite character :-).
I like his voice and the way he is working with it, as well as his flawless recitation. After all, he is a professional singer.
Not really. All stories were fun to listen. Of course some of them are better, some of them worse.
This book is not bad but if I had to choose I would pick Corey's previous book Seven Deadly Sins. It depends if you like fiction-like reading (his stories in this book) or more autobiographic stuff (his previous effort).
