WATCH: Corey Taylor Performs “Purple Rain,” “Little Red Corvette” At Solo Show

We’re sure there will be many more Prince tribute performances that will come in in the coming days, but Corey Taylor’s tribute was truly something special.

Taylor had a solo show booked last night (April 21st) in Minneapolis, which happens to be where Prince was born.  Needless to say, emotions were running high, and they undoubtedly led to Taylor opening the show with a stellar rendition of “Purple Rain.”
