Corey Taylor Pops The Question To Girlfriend
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has popped the question to his girlfriend, Alicia Dove of the all-female dance troupe Cherry Bombs. Taylor announced the engagement by posting an Instagram photo of his bride-to-be wearing the ring that he gave her, along with the caption: "L'adorilust. Forever. And Ever."
Asked by one of her Twitter followers how Taylor proposed, Dove responded: "After breakfast at home, as I put the salsa back in the fridge I shut the door and he was standing there with a ring. Got down on one knee, and I immediately started crying on the floor with him. In our kitchen. In our sweats, nothing fancy. It was f**king perfect."
Taylor and Dove, who now share a home in Las Vegas, began dating after the breakup of Taylor's eight-year marriage with Stephanie Luby, whom he wedded in November 2009. Taylor was previously married from 2004 to 2007 to a woman named Scarlett, with whom he shares a son. The singer also has a daughter from an earlier relationship.
Slipknot revealed last month the dates and cities for its "Knotfest Roadshow" headlining tour. Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth will join as special guests on all dates. The 29-city outing kicks off on July 26th in Mountain View, California and continues through September 8th in The Woodlands, Texas. The trek will coincide with the release of the band's long-awaited sixth studio LP, which will arrive on August 9th.
