Corey Taylor Posts Live Video of “Samantha’s Gone” from L.A. Forum Concert
Now a couple months since its release, how are you feeling about Corey Taylor’s debut solo album, CMFT? Did it deliver everything you hoped for from Metal Jesus himself? What’s more, did you catch his Forum or Against ‘Em livestream concert, hosted at the famed Forum in Los Angeles? Did it fill the pandemic-shaped concert hole in your heart?
With the end of 2020 approaching and the urgent need to categorize all of your subjective musical experiences into neatly organized “best of” lists, now’s your chance to reevaluate (or evaluate) your feeling on all of Taylor’s output in one shot with a live rendition of the solo album track “Samantha’s Gone” filmed at the Forum show.
It’s a cool clip — Taylor kills it, looks to be having a blast, and the production is top-notch — but the best moment for me comes right after the song ends when the barely audible applause of the small group of industry insider onlookers present for the show echoes throughout the empty arena. If that’s not a microcosm for 2020, what is?
Watch below as you mull over your feelings on Taylor, yourself and the entire world.
