Corey's into MUSIC, playing Bass and Guitar (poorly), crappy Glam/Sleaze Metal, crappy old TV, collecting and restoring vintage arcade games, trips to Hollywood, dark import beers, Cleveland Browns and hanging out with his wife and young son.
Foo Fighters head honcho Dave Grohl and his band mate Taylor Hawkins inducted Rush into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame last week, and Grohl told Rolling Stone it was an emotional experience.
"It's terrifying to play your favorite band's song in front of your favorite band. It's one thing to sit in the basement and woodshed “2112” – it's another to stand in front of Rush in a f**king kimono and a wig, and try to use a wah-wah pedal in your platform shoes."
Grohl was inspired to become a drummer after hearing Rush’s Neil Peart so meeting him at rehearsals was a big moment in his life. But, what did Peart do to make him cry? Grohl explains: "This man was as influential as any religion, or any hero. He said: 'So nice to meet you. Can I make you a coffee?' And he made me a coffee. Later on that night, I went to dinner and had a couple of glasses of wine. And I started f**king crying, because my hero made me a cup of coffee."
