Video: Corey Taylor Performs Acoustic Bon Jovi Cover

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor kicked off his solo tour in style earlier this week, by performing an acoustic cover of Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive” at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Taylor’s ode to this particular Bon Jovi hit follows in the footsteps of Opeth, whose rendition of the song we brought you last month.
