Corey Taylor broke down in tears during his speech while receiving the ICON award.
The Stone Sour/Slipknot frontman told the crowd:
It’s been eight years, and you put a lot of s*** in perspective. You have a lot of time to think. You have nowhere to go with it. Your trial and error becomes your way of life, who you are is a question every day, and why. And in this industry, that ‘why’ is kind of wrapped up in a lot of weird s***.
He ended with:
One day at a time. And every day is a gift. So thank you for having this gift with me.
