During a recent appearance on 93X radio station, SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor was asked how he and his wife Alicia celebrated their first anniversary as a married couple on October 6.
“It was weird. It was our first date night in eight months,” he responded. “We hadn’t gone out. [Laughs] And it was weird dressing; we were gonna have to be presentable and not in our sweats. It’s such a weird normal now. So we went out.
“Obviously, we’re in [Las] Vegas, so it was pretty easy to find a spot. We went to Nobu, which is one of our favorite suchi places. They had the booths set up in a way where it’s naturally distanced, so you don’t have to worry about that. But you have to keep your mask on right up until you get the drink.
“They were, like, ‘You have to keep the mask on till you get the drink.’ I was, like, ‘Whatever. I might just wear this while I’m eating the damn thing.’ So it was still a reminder that it’s a little weird out there. But it was great. We had a great time.”
Corey and Alicia tied a knot in their hometown of Las Vegas in October 2019.
