The 1st time I saw Corey Taylor play one of his crushingly brutal shows in #Slipknot, many things rushed through my mind... not one of them had anything to do with the fact that one day I'd be able to take the carpool lane because of him.
Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour joins me in my car as we drive to meet a fan who is in rehabilitation facility figuring out how to live the next phase of his life after a truck hit him leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.
We talked life, music, grandmothers, and Henry Rollins. What followed was one of the greatest things I've ever gotten to do in radio.
If you missed it.. here's what happened when we brought Corey to meet Aaron
After a terrible accident, Aaron is dealing with some major challenges moving forward into the next phase of his life. On May 15th 2017 about 9pm, Aaron Foley was helping a friend who lost control of his motorcycle and fell off. When he went to cross the street, he was hit by a Chevy Silverado.
This left him paralyzed from the waist down, broken ribs, 2 burst lungs and a lacerated liver. Aaron is now working hard to continue to live his life to the fullest without being able to walk. Corey's visit was intended to lift Aaron's spirits. I know it did, but I think this young man's incredibly positive outlook did more for us than we could ever hope to do for him.
Look for the awesome moment at the 3:05 mark when Aaron Realizes who's visiting him. =)
