Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor will participate in a live web chat on Monday, July 11 at 5 PM EST/2 PM PST, interacting with fans and reading from his forthcoming book Seven Deadly Sins - Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good. The book is a combination autobiography and discussion of the nature of sin; in Taylor's words, "my interpretation of the seven deadly sins is basically they're not sins at all. They are human characteristics that we all share...And it's me making that point of you can live with these urges, you can live with these hungers and still be a good person."

Taylor also recently sat for an extended interview with Jim Florentine of That Metal Show, which is being hosted on his own website in three parts. The first installment appeared on Tuesday, July 5, and can be seen here. The next two parts will go live on July 12 (the day Seven Deadly Sins is released) and July 19.
