Corey Taylor and Randall “Randy” Blythe present and sign their latest books, You’re Making Me Hate You and Dark Days: A Memoir

In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey, Taylor sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off.   Whether it's people's rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and--most of all--the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor's humor and insight cover civil society's seeming decline--sparing no one along the way, least of all himself.  Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor's inimitable voice, You're Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.

In 2010, a nineteen-year-old super-fan rushed the stage during a Lamb of God concert in Prague. To protect himself, singer Randy Blythe pushed the fan away. Unbeknownst to Blythe, the young man hit his head on the floor when he fell and later died from the injury. Blythe was promptly incarcerated on charges carrying a prison term of five to ten years. Thirty-seven days later, he was released on bail to await trial. Although legal experts told him not to return to the Czech Republic to face the charges, Blythe explained that he "could not run away from this problem while the grieving family of a dead young man searched hopelessly for answers that [he] might help provide."  After a five-day trial, he was acquitted on March 5, 2013.  In Dark Days, Blythe tells the story of his incarceration and the wild life that led up to it. As he explains, "Most substance abuse books end with the author getting sober. My book starts there." (Da Capo Press)
