Slipknot Singer Moves Into Posh Des Moines Home

Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has moved on up in his hometown of Des Moines, Iowa. He sealed a deal on Friday (March 15) for a new home in one of the city’s wealthiest neighborhoods. However, some neighbors have some reservations about Taylor joining the community, reports the Des Moines Register.

The Linden Heights Neighborhood association learned of the purchase last week. One member of the association hoped the musician “was a clarinetist,” reports the paper. When asked how his neighbors should react, Taylor told the Register, “Horror first, then desperation, and a deep need to buy me out.”

He joked, “I just hope once they get to know me, they’ll understand that-besides the blood worship on Thursdays-I’m an average guy.”
