RAT Rock News

Corey Taylor has been very vocal about how influential his grandmother, Thelma, has been in his life. Sadly, the singer shared she has passed away.

Taylor posted the following tribute to his grandmother today on his Instagram:

“She was my hero. My rock. My everything. She raised me. Taught me to be kind but tough. Work and encourage others to do so. I’ve never known a day without her in this world. My heart has broken. I loved her so much. And I will miss her every day. She was an incredible woman. And I owe her everything. I love you, Gram.

Thelma Taylor


We send our sincere condolences to Taylor and his family during this difficult time.
