A devoted fan once gave Slipknot a cow heart, Corey Taylor said. Yes. bizarre like that. Recently, the band’s singer was asked to name the worst, weirdest or scariest fan gift he’s ever received for a recent fan poll for an upcoming printed issue of Revolver.

“One of Slipknot’s biggest fans in Holland was this guy Crazy White Sean — he was this weird hippie artist-musician dude who just tooled around Amsterdam doing his thing,” Taylor recalled. “We were in Amsterdam on Valentine’s Day to play a show, and he brought us a real cow heart in a Valentine’s box and it fucking smelled awful.”

Someone tried to take a bite of it and immediately threw up,” commented Taylor. “I was like, ‘That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been around!’.”

Speaking of the late Crazy White Sean, Corey added: “Sean was one of those guys who was kind of confrontational at first, but once you got past the crazy veneer, he was a sweetheart. He died about 10 years ago, which was a real bummer.”
