The Slipknot frontman recently fulfilled a young fan’s dream by engaging in a one-hour conversation. The young fan, Trevor, was battling terminal brain cancer and through the Living the Dream Foundation got the opportunity to chat with Taylor.

The duo discussed everything from music, Star Wars, and monster truck jams as Taylor told Trevor, “I admire your attitude, you got a lot of fortitude.”

"Corey was so kind and generous, speaking to Trevor about Star Wars and monster trucks for over an entire hour. As the conversation progressed, you could see Trevor’s body language and energy perk up with excitement and uncontainable joy,” the organization wrote in a Facebook post.

Their post continued: "Sadly, a few weeks after their conversation, Trevor lost his battle with brain cancer. Before he passed, he was still getting out doing what he loved despite being paralyzed. Trevor fought through the pain to partake in his passions and spend time with his loved ones. We honor his life by showing the world what a strong, confident, funny, and loving guy he indeed was. Trevor’s fight inspires us all to enjoy each and every day and to live life to its fullest. Our hearts go out to Trevor’s family and friends for their loss. Special thanks to Corey Taylor for taking the time to make Trevor’s dream come true.”

Taylor and Slipknot are set to hit the road this summer as they’ll be taking Knotfest on an extensive tour.

The tour will see Slipknot be joined by Killswitch Engage, Fever 333, and Code Orange for a series of dates beginning in late September.
