Corey Taylor is one of many rock stars who have tested positive for COVID-19 as of late. In a new interview, he speculates as to how he contracted the virus.

Speaking in an interview with Billy D that was part of GalaxyCon, Taylor said regarding testing positive, “I try to keep my mask up the entire time. You try to trust that people are vaccinated or they’re masking up and social distancing and at least testing negative before they go to something like that. And sometimes you just run into those selfish people that don’t care about that. I think that’s what happened to me. Somebody came to one of my shows and was in the audience sick and probably got several people sick.”

Fortunately, Taylor is on the mend and has been able to fight the virus without needing hospitalization. He shared in a video to his social media channels last week, “…I am out of the woods…the fever’s gone, aches are gone. I’m sweating everything out. I’m still congested. But I’m slowly but surely making my way.”

He also stated in the same video, “He later states, “I also wanna say that because I was vaccinated, I truly believe that is what helped me get over the break. I mean, this is the worst I’ve ever been sick in my life. Had I not been vaccinated, I shudder to think how bad it would have been. But because I had that extra little bit of protection, man, it definitely helped me get through it. So — go, go, go. If you’re still on the fence [about getting the vaccine], I’m telling you right now it’s the best thing you can do for yourself.”
