Last week we learned via Twitter that Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor had been robbed of $36,000 worth of musical equipment from his home in West Des Moines, Iowa, and you’ll be happy to know, he’s recovered 98% of what was stolen.

Apparently it was one of Taylor’s friends that broke in and took all the gear, including two bass guitars that belonged to late Slipknot bassist Paul Gray. The ‘friend’ fell under suspicion after attempting to buy back some of the gear from a local music shop. Taylor tweeted to fans that nearly all the gear had been accounted for by the end of the week, including some of the most expensive items as well as sentimental ones. Police have advised Taylor to change the locks at his house and storage unit and there is no word yet if he will be pressing charges against his so called ‘friend’.

Pulse of Radio asked Taylor about his thoughts on the whole situation to which he stated, “It’s a hard lesson, you know. You think you trust somebody and you turn your back for a second and they show their true colors. But the cool thing is the fact that yes, this one person did this, but our true friends came out of the woodwork and between them, my wife and the West Des Moines police department, we’ve been able to track down almost everything. That’s what I’m taking from this.”

Meanwhile, Taylor is preparing to hit the road again, this time for a short book signing tour to support his upcoming book, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven (Or, How I Made Peace With The Paranormal And Stigmatized Zealots And Cynics In The Process), which will be in stores tomorrow.
