Despite Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor’s busy touring schedule, he arranged to spend some time with a die-hard fan, Aaron Foley, who became recently paralyzed due in an accident. On May 15th, Foley rushed to help a friend in a motorcycle accident, getting hit by a pickup truck while crossing the road and leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.
Foley had met Taylor a few times prior to the visit, including having been in Stone Sour’s recent video for “Fabuless.” His mother contacted a local rock radio station in San Diego who reached out to Taylor, setting up a personal visit at the hospital. Taylor spent almost an hour talking with his fan and video of the entire visit can be seen on YouTube.
His stepfather shared the following message:
“We can’t thank Corey Taylor enough to take time out of his busy day on tour with Stone Sour to visit Aaron. And we would also like to thank the Crew and Management at Rock 105.3 for helping set this up and helping contact Corey to make it all come together.”
A gofundme page was created to help support Foley’s medical expenses.
